A Thought

Either Christ is the answer, or He is not. If He is not the answer, then what in the world are we doing? If He is the answer, then why in the world aren't we doing more?

Could it be that we really do not believe that He is the answer that this sin-sick world needs? Or are we so cold and indifferent in having the answer that we are perfectly content to do nothing with it?

I believe that Christ is the answer that this sin-sick world needs. I believe that His substitutionary death on the cross of Calvary was the propitiation for my sins, and not for mine only, but also for the sins of the whole world. I believe that His burial and His resurrection from the dead validate His claims that He is not just a man, but that He is God in the flesh. I believe that God desires to reconcile the world to Himself through salvation that is in Jesus Christ, and I believe that this ministry of reconciliation has been given to every believer. Christians, we do have the answer. Why are we doing so little with it?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me. -John 14:6
