First Sunday of Lent 2018

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. (JOHN 12:32)

One cause of the attractiveness of Christianity is that Christians are not asked to believe anything which is not reasonable. Jesus said, 'Let us reason together; though your sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow, though they be red like crimson they shall be as wool. Another cause or reason for the attractiveness of Christianity is the compassion of God. The many gods of other religions do not have the power or desire to help. Our God is alive. He does not give us a religion and then leaves us to fend for ourselves. We will have trials and tribulations in this life; however, our God is our helper. We are taught in His Word that God is with us always even unto the end. In Christianity we have hope. By the way of the Cross we journey to the crown. The cross is a foolishness to the Greek and the Muslim and to the Jew a stumbling block. However, to us Christians who seek Salvation through Faith, it is the wisdom and the power of the only True Living God!
