Someone once said, “Life is like a wild goose chase – without the goose.” The search for a truly loving relationship can be like that. In the midst of the search however, a book as trustworthy as the Bible assures us that the Creator of the universe cared so much for us that He came seeking after each of us.
In a world of loneliness, despair, and rejection, the Bible offers hope and encouragement. In the words given to a blind beggar named Bartimaeus: “Be of good cheer. .. He is calling you” (Mark 10:49).
Yes, the Creator cares for you! With that awesome truth in mind, consider the words of astronaut Guy Gardner, who said this about what he learned when he saw the marvels of the created universe in outer space:
It’s very hard to think this must have happened by chance… You realize at the same time that there had to be a Master Designer, a Creator of this planet. And to me that makes life all the more special. Because that tells me that instead of me being something that just came along in the course of time to live and die, that instead of a meaningless existence. I have Someone – who cares for me – who has made me and cares about me. Someone I can go to with my troubles, and my cares, and my joys.
If Jesus is who He claimed to be, if the Bible has answers to our most important questions, if the church is more than hypocrites, and if the Creator really does care for us, then everything now depends on our willingness to trust Him. If Jesus is God in the flesh, then apart from Him we will never know real joy, real meaning, or real peace in life. He is our Creator and He seeks a personal relationship with us.
Have you responded to His sacrificial love with faith and accepted His invitation to everlasting life, forgiveness, and peace? Carefully consider what the Bible says:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemn; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16-18).
If you’ve never done so before, accept the gift of salvation. Trust Jesus with your life and your eternity. The forgiveness, love, hope, and encouragement that you’ve been seeking are found in a personal relationship with Him.
