Speaking of the problems that all people face on planet Earth we read what one man has to say:
We are searching for a way out of our dilemma, and the universal sign we see is “no exit.” But the cross presents itself in the midst of our dilemma as our only hope. Here we find the justice of God in perfect satisfaction–the mercy of God extended to the sinner–the love of God covering every need–the power of God for every emergency–the glory of God for every occasion. Here is power enough to transform human nature. Here is power enough to change the world.
These words were written by Dr. Billy Graham. The book is Unto the Hills: A Daily Devotional.
Few men have touched the lives of so many in a positive way as Dr. Graham. Of his life he says:
“I see how God’s hand guided me. I sense His Spirit with me today, and most comforting is the knowledge that He will not forsake me during this last stretch as I am nearing home.”
Time passes so quickly. Dr. Graham was born in 1918 and is now ninety-two years of age. He trusted Jesus Christ at age 16. His faith has been steady for seventy-six years!
As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. Psalm 103:15-16
Countless numbers will agree with Dr. Graham that Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross of Calvary offer the answer to man’s dilemma. To find true and lasting peace, one must go to the cross of Christ and trust the One who died there. He died, but death could not hold Him. He is the risen Lord.
The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace. Psalm 29:11
