Christian Short Stories - Flash Fiction (Below 1000 words)

These are complete stories with an estimated reading time of 3-5 minutes.


My skin looked paler. I was dying one second at a time. Everyone dies that way, but who'd enjoy the consciousness of it?

Pulling my cheeks downwards with both hands, I drew my face closer to the mirror. Sunken eyes and dry lips. Several overnight forehead wrinkles.

I opened my mouth to examine my tongue. Ugh,

Before The Dance

At the wicket gate into the Potter's house, Huldah the prophetess heard a familiar impulse whisper, "Go inside." She would have passed, for the sun was hot and the way to her destination long.

How to read these Christian stories

Christian fiction is not like other fiction. The writer has a message to convey. Even with funny Christian stories, the goal is not to make you laugh or feel entertained.

God can speak to you through these words.  Especially the parables and allegories especially contain special messages that may need reflection to mine the message.

Christian writers who are committed to their craft recognize it as a special call to use their God-given talent for storytelling and writing to impact the lives of those who come in contact with their works. Read with an expectation to go home with something.

The place of Christian Fiction

You may come across persons who take offense at Christian fiction.While the specific opposition to Christian romance may be understandable for works that are sexually arousing or that portray a virtual romantic world that leaves the reader dissatisfied with their own reality, an opposition to Christian fiction in general is misplaced.

As stated above, Christian fiction writers are convinced of the necessity of their works. Through a Christian Short Story, for example, a writer can pass across an indelible message that a non-fiction book might not.

That is why the Lord Jesus used stories, parables, allegories.

The fact that people read more fiction books than non-fiction proves that their attention can be easily got with stories.

With declining attention span, and many people now scanning blogs and books, the Christian fiction writer has a powerful tool in their hands
