OUR MEETING TODAY is not altogether by chance. Although we have not had time to become well acquainted, may I share with you something most wonderful?
Sometime ago, I met a remarkable person, so great and outstanding that it has become a joy to introduce Him to others. The great tragedy is that so many know about Him, but so few know Him personally. Perhaps you have already guessed that I am talking of Jesus Christ – The King of Kings and the Savior of the world.
To some He is little more than a word of blasphemy, to others a source of embarrassment; but to those who know Him, He is a wonderful friend and a brother who sticks closer through times of happiness and sorrows. When once we accept Him as our Savior, we make an amazing discovery. Jesus Christ did not come to makes us religious and stuffy saints or miserable people, He came to give us LIFE –the very fullest and richest. Listen to Jesus’ own words, “…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” –John 10:10 (NKJV)
Dear Reader, whatever may have been your disappointment with people, disillusionment with life, and confusion with religion, please let me assure you that is not the fault Jesus Christ. He has been misrepresented, betrayed, denied and neglected; but today, He stands majestically, in love pleading with you saying, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” –Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)
He speaks to you today. Do you personally know Him or you know about Him? Reading this is not an accident, this is His way of giving you an opportunity to know Him for yourself and not what others distorted views of Him. “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God." -2 Corinthians 5:20 (NKJV)
The scripture says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you...” –James 4:8(NKJV)
Today is your moment to know His salvation! Jesus says, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” –John 5:24 (NKJV)
