Looking for a Cause?

In a book called “The Age of Longing” we read that an American girl married a radical revolutionary in Paris. She had lost her faith at an American University—lost all the religious faith she had, and all the things her parents had told her. She was asked why she married him. She said, “He’s the first person I have ever known who believes something strong enough to die for it. Although I don’t believe exactly as he does, I was attracted to this man who had found a cause.” I find that young people today are looking for a cause, and they are not looking for something easy.

Some time ago a university student in Moscow told one of my colleagues, “You Christians say that you are going to win the world, but we’ve done more in fifty years than you’ve done in two thousand years. And do you know why? It is because you are not committed. We are. We will win, you’ll see.”

Prayer for the day

I look at my dedication to You, Jesus, my Lord and Savior, and am ashamed—You gave everything for me. May I always live totally committed in love to You.

    I believe young & old are seeking for a purpose in life. Until I found someone who loved me enough to die for me, Jesus Christ, I felt like giving up felt no purpose in my life . Now He has shown me my purpose. When we show Gods love & live it, others will want it too.

    Saying that we are committing to something is easy to do. The difficult part can be staying focussed and actually doing it. We must follow through with our commitment. Christ made a commitment and he followed through by sacrificing his Holy life, he did this to atone for all who would believe in the great truth that he is the Holy Son of God.

    I am very grateful to the Billy Graham Crusades. He helped me to be born anew in 1/2015. I believed in God since baptism when I was 11 years old. When I became 16 my life went down hill badly because I pushed Jesus away. The Holy Spirit led me back to Jesus through Billy’s crusades and I was born anew and I have a relationship today with my Lord. May God Bless Billy Graham and his family. In love of Christ your brother Bradley Franklin Rogers
