A Simple Message

By   •   January 3

The great Swiss theologian, Dr. Karl Barth, was probably in his generation the greatest theologian in the world, and a great philosopher as well. I did not always agree with him, but he was my friend and I respected him. While he was in this country, a student at one of the seminaries said, “Dr. Barth, what is the greatest truth that ever crossed your mind?” All the seminary students were sitting on the edge of their seats to hear some great, profound, deep, complicated answer. Dr. Barth slowly raised his great shaggy gray head and looked at the student and said, “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.”

Have you accepted this simple truth? Follow these simple steps to peace with God.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, may I always keep the knowledge of Your love in true simplicity—unencumbered by much learning. Thank You for loving me.

    Even a child can understand this truth. Jesus Christ tells us in Matthew 18:4 that we must humble ourselves as a little child. We receive God’s greatest gift of salvation by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. There’s simple, childlike faith in that truth.

  2. Malcolm says:

    That is the Gospel truth.
    God bless this ministry, and God bless Billy Graham in Jesus’ name.

  3. JC says:

    I have grown up listening to Billy Graham. I value his teachings and his opinion more than anyone else. I really can’t imagine how this world would be without him in it! I am so glad to see Gerry writing comments again. I look forward to reading your comments. You are also a wonderful man of God!!

  8. Gerry says:

    No one will ever love you more than the Triune Godhead—God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The abundant evidence of that amazing love is well documented in His Holy Word. Accept it or reject it … it remains the Truth.
