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.

  2. Jolene Cummings says:

    Please pray for me and my family at this time and please continue on in prayer for us.
    Thank you very, very much! We appreciate and are humbled by your Ministry and your prayers. God says to “Pray Without Ceasing” and indeed, that is what I must do, I would appreciate it if you all remembered us in your prayers from time to time. Thank you! We will be praying for all of you as well. May God Bless and Keep you in All your ways and wherever you may go. You have the “anointing”. I used to have it, but I have not felt it for a very long time. Times Change. People Change. But we can all return to our “First Love”. that being to the Love of God Our Father who is Jesus Christ, the one and the same as Christ Jesus, the Alpha and Omega,

    All my life I’ve struggled with trying to be “good enough”, and was fighting it again this morning, feeling gloomy, condemned and shadowed, even though I know the truth of the Gospel. Then, in my restless discontent, poking around on the internet, I found this message, and the burden was instantly lifted. Jesus doesn’t love me because of what I do; He loves me just because. . .He loves me! What a blessed relief!

    Please keep on sending me the information of life spring to help me in this journey of life on earth so that at the end of the time I don’t look back and regret.

  5. Mark McConnell says:

    Jesus Christ guided me through a very stressful and injury riddled career in the Marines. His love and presence saved me in very difficult times. He brought me back from death 18 years ago when many thought I wouldn’t make it. Praise God. He’s my best friend forever.

    1. Joe Loftis says:

      Amen. God bless you Mark McConnell for your powerful testimony that glorifies God. Thank you for your U.S. Military Service to this nation.
