A lady had recently been baptized. When she went to work, one of her co-workers asked her what is was like to be a Christian. She was caught off guard and didn't really know how to answer. But, when she looked up, she saw a jack-o-lantern on the desk and she answered:
"Well, it's a lot like being a pumpkin."
"God picks you from the patch and brings you in. He washes off all the dirt on the outside that you got from being around other pumpkins. God removes all that yucky stuff from the inside. He removes all those seeds of doubt, hate and greed. You feel really great. He carves you a new, smiling face and then He puts His light inside you to shine for all to see."
