"Tomorrow morning," the surgeon began,
"I'll open up your heart."
"You'll find JESUS there," the boy interrupted.
The surgeon looked up, annoyed. "I'll open up your
heart," he continued, "to see how much
damage has been done."
"But when you open up my heart, you'll
find JESUS in there."
The surgeon looked to the parents, who sat
quietly. "When I see how much damage has
been done, I'll sew your heart and chest back
up and I'll plan what to
"But you'll find JESUS in my heart. The Bible
says HE lives there. The hymns all say HE
lives there. You'll find
HIM in my heart."
The surgeon had enough. "I'll tell you what
I'll find in your heart. I'll find damaged muscle,
low blood supply, and weakened vessels. And
I'll find out if I can make you well."
"You'll find JESUS there

The surgeon sat in his office, recording his notes

He stopped the recorder, but there was more
to be said. "Why?" he asked aloud. "Why did
YOU do this? YOU'VE put him here; YOU'VE
put him in this pain; and YOU'VE cursed him
to an early death. Why?"
The LORD answered and said, "The boy,
MY lamb, was not meant for your flock for long,
for he is part of MY flock, and will forever be.
Here, in MY flock, he will feel no pain, and will
be comforted as you cannot imagine. His parents
will one day join him here, and they will know
peace, and MY flock will
continue to grow."
The surgeon's tears were hot, but his anger was

that heart. He'll be dead in months. Why?"
The LORD answered, "The boy, MY lamb,
shall return to MY flock, for he has done his
duty; I did not put MY lamb with your flock
to loose him, but to retrieve another lost lamb."
The surgeon wept.
The surgeon sat beside the boy's bed; the
boy's parents sat across from him. The boy
awoke and whispered, "Did you cut open
my heart?" "Yes," said the surgeon.
"What did you find?" asked the boy.
"I found JESUS there," said the surgeon.
