Leading from values so others will walk passionately with God to grow and bear fruit.
One day I received a telephone call from a friend. He was working for his doctorate in one of the most prestigious seminaries in America. He asked if I would go with him to call on the head of the seminary, who was also his professor. He explained to me that his professor was a brilliant scholar, but denied the deity of Christ.
When we arrived and I was introduced, his immediate response was: "Mr. Bright, when you talk to college students about becoming a Christian, what do you tell them?" I was skeptical of his sincerity and weighed my words carefully.
He then asked a second question, "Better still, what would you tell me? I would like to become a Christian?"
The professor continued, "About five years ago I began to reevaluate my personal beliefs and I began to study in earnest the writings of the church fathers and the original manuscripts concerning Jesus. The more I studied, the more convinced I became that Jesus is the Son of God." And when he asked, "Will you help me" (and I shall never forget this phrase) "know Him as my personal Savior?" I was deeply moved.
He also made a profound statement: "As a result of my research," he said, "I am now convinced that no honest person who is willing to consider the overwhelming evidence proving the deity of Christ can deny that He is the Son of God." That day a great scholar met the living Christ with the spirit of a little child.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Who do you say Jesus is? Have you honestly looked at the evidence? Have you ever made Jesus your personal Savior, or has it just been intellectual recognition? If you have not done so before, today you can begin that relationship.
