… that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.
Act 17: 27.

Adventure attracted the young man after his classical studies. He planned to cycle across North America from east to west. That extensive land both enraptured and dispirited him. As he rode for miles along the highways of Canada and only occasionally met a car or was overtaken, severe loneliness overcame him, and he fell into periods of depression.

Going along lonely roads through thick forests, he suddenly realised that there is a God in heaven. He could not explain how the impression arose. He had heard nothing of it at home; now, however, he sensed God’s presence, and that calmed him down. The young man spoke to Him. He prayed for the first time in his life, and God heard him.

No great or remarkable things happened on his journey, yet he experienced God’s preservation and help. Every evening he found a roof over his head somewhere. The tent he had made himself failed to keep the rain out. And in that season it rained heavily in Canada. Whenever he had trouble with his cycle, there were kind people to assist him. Somehow he felt himself under God’s protection and totally secure. This experience bewildered him.

Several years passed before he recognised that God not only wanted to show him His goodness for his earthly life. He realised that God wanted to save him from his sins and the punishment for them and grant him eternal life. One night he grasped the fact that God had been seeking him and patiently following him all the time.

As he told me the foregoing story, his joy was all too evident.

Today‘s reading: 1 Kings 3: 1 – 28 · John 4: 43 – 54

NEGATIVE LIVING

Life comprises of positive and negative elements. As a matter of necessity, it is not good for someone to opt for negative living. The fact that Jesus Christ was destined to die for the sin of the whole world does not exonerate Judas Iscariot from the evil that led him to the idea of betraying the King of Glory....More
