‘only believe’ Mark 5:36
I wonder who you will believe in 2015.
I have been having a very interesting email exchange with someone who is not a Christian. He wrote to me recently and said something which I thought was very profound, but also very simple. His phrase leaped out of the page towards me and I have been thinking about it ever since. It was this,
‘We believe or we don’t believe….it really is that simple’.
I realised that this statement sums up the Christian message and has an impact on our life on earth and our life after death too. A very simple statement….. but the consequences which follow our decision are anything but simple.
God has spoken to us. Do we believe Him? We believe or we don’t believe ….. it really is that simple.
God has spoken to us through the universe, through the Bible and through the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. And all we have to do is believe Him!
We believe or we don’t believe….. it really is that simple.
So this year – 2015 – will you believe God? If so it will certainly be a Happy New Year for you.
A NEW YEAR MESSAGE
The clock strikes twelve – the year has passed
How did it slip away so fast?
Will this year just be like the last?
Believe, my friend, believe.
The Lord is coming – have no doubt
My friend the time is running out
Events proclaim it all around
The Lord is coming – joyful sound.
Oh what a day! – at least, for those
Who have believed that Christ arose
They’ll rise to meet Him in the sky
Forever more with Him on high.
But oh, for some – what great despair
Horror and fear – they won’t be there
The truth will dawn – a dreadful fate
That awful cry – it is too late!
Believe, believe – I plead with you
Believe, believe – my friend, please do
Repent, repent of all your sin
Accept the Lord, just turn to Him.
My words run dry – what can I say?
If only you would stop and pray
Why do you doubt? God does not lie
And yet you won’t believe – but why?
Believe – for time will soon be gone
Believe – for now you haven’t long
Believe – and join the ransomed throng
Believe my friend – believe.
