It’s All About Jesus In 2014!
Dear Visionary Leader:
New Year’s Greetings!
As we march together into this new year, we are believing for more souls to be saved this year than in any previous year since Christ came out of the grave! It is all about Jesus! Will you join with us in believing that this will be the greatest year of salvations around the world?
Jesus has the answer to every question and solution for every problem. If you are weary in mind, Jesus says, “Come unto me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew11:28). If you need basic worldly goods, Jesus says, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness: and all these things will be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). If you are worried about life, Jesus says, “Be of good cheer; it is I, be not afraid” (Matthew 14:27). If you want to be a witness to the lost, Jesus says, “You shall receive power after the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you shall be witnesses unto me” (Acts 1:8). If you are weak in body, Jesus says, “Rise, take up your bed and walk” (John. 5:8).
Jesus came down the starry spangled skies of glory. He was born in Bethlehem, hidden in Egypt, raised in Nazareth, baptized in the Jordan, and tempted in the wilderness. Christ performed miracles on the roadside, healed multitudes without medicine and charged nothing for his services. He conquered everything that came up against Him. Then, Jesus Christ took our sins up to Calvary and died for the world. He was buried in Joseph’s new tomb and on schedule rose out of the grave with the power of His omnipotence.
Christ will still be God after eternity begins. He will be God long after our respective nations lie in the dust somewhere. He will be God when our fleeting and vaporous life we now have is gone. He will still be God when the stars leap at His command from their present orbit, and the earth melts with fervent heat from the gaze of Him whose eyes are like fire. He will still be God after all our confusions are wonderfully resolved in a heavenly understanding. He will still be God when all our weaknesses become strengths. He will still be God after our defeats become victories. He will still be God when our Sinai sojourn through the wilderness of this life gives way to the vestibule of eternity.
It is going to be different when Jesus comes back again. The first time He rode a donkey, the next time He will ride a white horse. The first time He stood before Pilate, this time Pilate will stand before Him. At first, Jesus was rejected, but at the last every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. At Christ’s first advent He wore a crown of thorns. At his second, He will wear the diadems of glory!
