What Is Most Important?

I was invited to have coffee one morning with Konrad Adenauer before he retired as the Chancellor of Germany. When I walked in, I expected to meet a tall, stiff, formal man who might even be embarrassed if I brought up the subject of religion. After the greeting, the Chancellor suddenly turned to me and said, “Mr. Graham, what is the most important thing in the world?” Before I could answer, he had answered his own question. He said, “The resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ is alive, then there is hope for the world. If Jesus Christ is in the grave, then I don’t see the slightest glimmer of hope on the horizon.” Then he amazed me by saying that he believed that the resurrection of Christ was one of the best-attested facts of history. He said, “When I leave office, I intend to spend the rest of my life gathering scientific proof of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” It was the fact of the resurrection of Christ that called the disciples to go out as burning young revolutionaries to change the world of their day. They preached that Christ is alive. This should be our message every day of the year.

Prayer for the day

Father, let my message to others be that of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and of His ability to change the lives of those who believe in Him.

    Those who have given their life to Christ , need no convincing . They are very much aware that Christ is alive and well. He intervenes in our lives every single day. Without that intervention we would continue to live a difficult existence , constantly trying to fix everything on our own ….. and failing miserably.

    Abba, bless those in the body of Christ universal. Lead us into all truth, for Thy Word is truth. Let us be a torch of love and grace to this lost and dying world. Let them see Jesus in us. Let them hear the gospel and be saved. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen!
