When Jesus say's, " Come to me,"
He doesn't say come to religion,
a system, or to a certain doctrine.
This is a very personal invitation
to God , an invitation to the savior.
In essence, Christianity is nothing
more , nothing less than a desire
and an effort to see Jesus. That's all
it is. We're trying to catch a glimpse
of a man, not a program, not a plan
not a system, not a doctrine. We're
trying to see a man who called Him-
self the son of God. Our God is not
aloof- He's not so far above us that
He can't see and understand our
problems. Jesus isn't a God who
stayed on the mountain top- He's
a savior who came down and lived
and worked with the people. Every-
where He went, the crowds followed,
drawn together by the magnet that was
and is the savior.
The life of Jesus Christ is a message of
hope, a message of mercy, a message of
life in a dark world.
