What Do You Think About Jesus?
In Matthew 16: 13-16 Jesus once asked people, “What do you think about the Christ, whose Son is He?” Sadly, there are many people who never think about Christ at all. In youth many are often too preoccupied to think about Jesus. The young often also feel that they’ll have plenty of time for Him later. Then in early adulthood, people are often too busy to think about God and His Son. They are concerned about their ambitions, careers, and goals, and they don’t think they have time for Him and religion. Then, in the prime of life, many are too worried to give much thought to the Lord. They are so filled with anxiety over life’s problems that God is often forgotten. Then when old age comes people may be too hardened to think of Christ. Finally, death comes, and then it is too late to think about Him. But, of course, after death comes ETERNITY-without God and Christ-eternity with FOREVER to think about Christ, and a lifetime of sin committed by IGNORING Him!
Dear readers and friends, I hope you have an interest in the Bible, and in God who gave us the Bible. I dearly hope you will contemplate His great love that He demonstrated in sending Jesus, His Son, to die the cruel death on the cross so that we can be saved (John 3: 16; Rom. 5: 8). Jesus said: “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11: 28). If you believe in Him, and are willing to repent of your sins, (Acts 2: 38) and confess His name, (Rom. 10: 9-10; Acts 8: 37), you can be baptized, washing away your sins (Acts 22: 16). When Jesus died on that cross, He was thinking of you. Think on these things.
