Today is the day
Science, Technology, Medicine; Our
world has been progressing in leaps and bounds in almost
all fields. Yet, one thing eludes us - peace!
civil unrest, violence and corruption have become an accepted
part of our lives. Despite all their differences,
if there is one common factor between the world's religious,
political and military leaders, it is "the uncertainty
of the future". In spite of all their deliberations
and summits, peace on Earth remains a distant dream. Everybody
wants peace, so does anybody claim to have a lasting answer
In Christ, we have an answer. No man has affected World
History like he has. In fact, world history revolves around
his birth date , B.C. and A.D. After his resurrection from
the Dead, He gave to his disciples a promise : "I will
return", and then He ascended to heaven.
return, as Jesus Himself said, many things will happen. "You will hear of wars and rumours of wars..nation
will rise against nation, and Kingdom against KIngdom. There
will be famines and earthquakes in various places...There
will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations
will be in anguish and perplexing at the thought of the roaring
and tossing of the sea. men will faint from terror, apprehensive
of what is coming on the world. For the heavenly bodies will
be shaken. And about His return, Jesus has said, "At
that time, they will see the Son of Man (Jesus Christ) coming
in a cloud with power and great glory". (1)
events are pointing to His return. The return of Jesus Christ
will bring peace to the world ending the reign
The dissatisfied Modern Man tries to find the
answer through philosophy, science, education, alcohol and
drugs, but it
only leads him in circles. Sin is the root cause of all the
problems and woes of man. It originated from man's unwillingness
to live according to the plan and purpose of God. Sin is
saying, "I will do whatever I please, and I don't care
what God wants me to do".
Mankind dried up and faded
as a flower removed from it's stem. Sin is not only doing
wrong acts, but also the power
that motivates mankind to do unwanted things. It separated
man from Holy God. Man started wandering without purpose
and peace. But, the loving God
came down to this world in the person of Jesus Christ to
search man. We don't have to
be taught to sin, we are a wicked society. The question is, "How
do we get out of this pit ?"
Jesus said, "You shall know the truth and the truth
shall make you free". (2)
Yes, we can be free. (3)Jesus said, "I am the ..Truth". He did not say, "You
shall know a truth", but "the truth". He is
the truth. He is the embodiment of all truth. Jesus said, "if
you believe not that I am He, You shall die in your sins".
(4) Jesus is worthy to forgive you and make you a new person.
Jesus is the ultimate truth in every realm. He told the truth
about Love. He said, "God so loved the world".
(5) He loves you irrespective of your religion, caste, colour
Jesus told the truth about Judgment, He warned
the people "to
flee from the wrath to come". (6) He told the truth
about repentance, He said, "Except you repent, you shall
all likewise perish". (7) It means we shall suffer judgment,
unless we repent. The word repentance means change - to change
our minds, to change our way of living. Though, we cannot
do it on our own, Christ can help us. But are you willing?
of you have an empty place in your life. You are in some
sort of a trap. Tensions, marital problems, debt traps,
immorality, drugs, envy, revenge, hatred or idolatry. You
may be a whisperer, backbiter or boaster. Would you like
to be free? You need to confess your sins to Jesus. Call
upon His name for forgiveness, peace and purpose. (8) Christ
alone brings revolutionary changes.
Religion or Religious
conversion cannot effect this. It comes from within, when
you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord
and Saviour. (9) When a man really believes in Jesus, it
is revolution being operative, a revolution of Love. His
love is still the wonder of the Universe. Taste
it and you'll never be the same. (10)
Salvation is entirely of God. He
planned it, accomplished it and offers it freely to mankind.
To reveal the unseen
God to mankind and for their salvation, Jesus Christ was
born with a human body. He lived in the world without sin.
The wage of sin is death. It means, we deserve eternal separation
from God. But Jesus Christ died for our sins, as being Himself
responsible for the penalty. HE IS RISEN ! CHRIST IS ALIVE
Because He rose from the dead, we know there is life after
death. If we belong to Him, we need not fear death. Death
is another step to Heaven. He is
the Prince of Peace and the Hope of the world. He is the
desire of nations. (11) Christ is unique in His claims and life. Do you have a personal
relationship with Christ? It can, if you will open your heart
and let him in today. The only time we have is now.
" Now is the time for salvation".
(12) Don't put away decisions for tomorrow, which may never
is your day.
These are the words of the saviour to you now "here
I am! I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock, If anyone
hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in..." (13)
The following is a suggested prayer. Prayer is taking to
God in your words. Does this prayer express the desires of
your heart? If it does, pray right now, Christ will come
into your life.
" Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the
cross for my sins. I repent for my sins. I open the door
of my life and receive you as my Saviour and Lord. Comfort
me with your peace and control my life as it will be pleasing
to you. Henceforth I will live for you".
If you have
accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, please write
to us today. We would like to pray for you and
help you in your spiritual growth.
Wishing you peace and
progress - John Sebastian
