Albert Einstein’s teachers failed him in school, but he went on to be the most famous scientist of the twentieth century.
Musicians and critics booed the music of Richard Wagner, but his compositions transformed the music world.
Westinghouse was called a fool for daring to stop a train with wind, but today his airbrakes are used the world over.
People called Abraham Lincoln a country bumpkin, but he went on to become one of our most respected presidents.
We smile at the crowd’s failure to appreciate something new or different. But being wrong can be a serious problem when it comes to our relationship to God. Too much is at stake.
Because you and I have sinned against God and man, we deserve God’s punishment. The Bible says in Romans 6:23 that “the wages of sin is death,” eternal separation from God.
But God offers us “eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”, according to Romans 6:23. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
You can be wrong about many things, but you dare not be wrong about Christ. Through faith in Him you can be saved just as you are. Your sins can be forgiven and the peace of God can fill your life: John 1:12 says, “As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name”.
Whom will you choose? The crowd or Christ?
If you will accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, please pray this prayer with all of your heart:
Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!
Remember, friend, Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith!
