“Have you ever seen the devil face to face?”

Short Story #18
My first Christian Fiction.
Well, sort of.

“God does take too long to answer prayers,” he fussed behind the now frowning Frenchman in the coffee line. “Maybe if I see the face of God, I’ll believe in Him. It must be easier to believe in the devil.”

That was it.

Marcus turns to look at the grumbling man behind him. The man’s face was beaten with weathered lines crisscrossing from the left to right, a visible scar on the chin. He wore a baseball jersey tucked neatly into black dress pants, his hair unkempt.

“Have you ever seen the devil face to face?” Marcus calmly asked.

The man scrutinized him with hard cold blue eyes. “No, but…”

“Did the devil ever came to you in the flesh and proclaim, “Here, I am, Satan, Lord of Darkness now believe?” Did he died for your sins?”

“Are you crazy?”

Marcus didn’t let the petty insult faze him. “The same faith that you instill in a wicked being without seeing him face to face, why can’t you instill that faith in the Most High above?”

He had the attention of the people and the barista now.

“We might have seen depictions of what the devil looks like, but he did not offer you eternal life. It is easier to believe in the devil because entertainment tells you to given that it’s there for a distraction. That’s why it’s hard for you to believe that a Higher Force exists.Β 

“Who do you think created nature? Man? Where do you think your talent comes from? What is that little blessing called? A miracle and the devil cannot bless you with one. What he does is lie to you and provide temporary relief to your living situations. Don’t let the wickedness of this world deceive you. Just as it is easy for you to believe that the devil exists, then, it is easy for you to believe that God does indeed exist. Now, if you excuse me, I have a coffee to purchase. Have a blessed day.”

The man stood daunted for a while coming to grip with what had just taken place. Maybe the Frenchman was right. Maybe he needed to reevaluate his perspective on life and have a little faith sometimes.

I really wanted to post a new story today. Although I have tons of new material, I am not ready to share them as yet. I found this one while going through a notebook. It was written last year, but I never got around to typing it up until now. I don’t write Christian Fiction so this was a pleasant surprise when I first scribbled down the words on paper and it takes place in a coffee shop. I look forward to writing more stories such as these.Β

  1. I agree with bond0servant, and Keith. This is wonderful Diana. It’s also so thought provoking. You are right that so many things, solidifies, even glorifies the devil, and yet the same venues will say God doesn’t exist. I say again, this is wonderful. So glad you wrote it, and shared it with us :):)

  4. I love Marcus’ style… Hitting the man with the hard truth quickly and sharp. There was no time to try and convince the other man gently. Sometimes the truth comes to us in odd places plus we shouldn’t be afraid to share our faith. A beautiful story here, Diana
