When I think of what Christ has done how can I not think of believing, receiving Him! This Book, the Bible has been preserved over centuries and unlike any other work of authorship, has lasted intact. We learn better scholarship from better manuscripts being used in its translation. Josh McDowell has written a small work on how really fantastic the Bible is! "Evidence That Demands A Verdict," he wrote.
Jesus was especially humble with children. He was mighty and He healed, did well, with everyone loving there personhood for the unique individual they were. He was much more than a great moral teacher and example. He was sinless. Uniquely He, the perfect Lamb of God died for us. We nailed Him to a cross but the power of sin could not hold Him in the grave. He arose! Christ arose! Hallelujah, I'm saved! If I continue in the present receiving and obeying Him I'm on good secure ground.
You see the claims of Christ are in the four Gospels and anyone can learn how they affect one today is valid being objective facts of truth therein! I was a little child of four when I gave my heart to Christ to follow Him a disciple/learner student! I know I'm forgiven being the sinner I was. No one can be saved unless they humble there pride and come sincerely! I didn't need to learn to sin. I knew it was easy being even in childhood back then. But Christ gave me a "newness of life" and put a new man in my shoes! I don't want to do the things I used to do. I have the privelege of being God's friend. This is because Jesus finished His work on salvation and now He sits at the right of the Father. I grew up in a Pentecostal family in a godly home but I recognized I need to decide myself if the Bible is relevant and pertinent. I found it reasonable the way God reveals Himself progressively. The Bible says, "what is seen is temporal, what is unseen is eternal!" "It's one life, twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last," is a famous quote by someone. May you too recognize your need as a sinner for Christ and salvation by His grace (you can't earn it.) David Candel
