Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was living, and even after he died, some people tried to discredit him by suggesting that Dr. King was not a true minister of the Gospel, and even that he did not have a genuine relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, but that he was just a mere social worker. However, from direct quotations from his lips, it seems as though he knew the KING of kings–Jesus Christ. Dr. King said:

From his personal testimony–In 1934, when a guest minister at Ebenezer made a strong pitch for the salvation of young souls, Martin Luther King, Jr. watched his sister rise to make the first profession of faith. Impulsively, as he later confessed, “I decided that I would not let her get ahead of me, so I was the next.

“Dr. King also said: “Bound by the chains of his own sin and finiteness, man needs a Saviour (Jesus Christ). Man cannot save himself, for man is not the measure of all things and humanity is not God.”

“Only through an inner spiritual transformation do we gain the strength to fight victoriously the evils of the world in a humble and loving spirit.”

“We cannot be truly Christian people so long as we flaunt the central teachings of Jesus: brotherly love and the Golden Rule.”

“The church today is challenged to proclaim God’s Son, Jesus Christ, to be the hope of men in all of their complex personal and social problems.”

Dr. King made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. The question now, is, have you?

Following the crowd, or following Christ

Following the crowd, or following Christ

People said that Christopher Columbus would sail off the edge of the earth, but in 1492 he discovered America.

 

People laughed at the Wright brothers’ attempts to create a flying machine, but in 1903 they flew the first airplane.

Albert Einstein’s teachers failed him in school, but he went on to be the most famous scientist of the twentieth century.

Musicians and critics booed the music of Richard Wagner, but his compositions transformed the music world.

Westinghouse was called a fool for daring to stop a train with wind, but today his airbrakes are used the world over.

People called Abraham Lincoln a country bumpkin, but he went on to become one of our most respected presidents.

We smile at the crowd’s failure to appreciate something new or different. But being wrong can be a serious problem when it comes to our relationship to God. Too much is at stake.

GLMX #70: Start Your New Year Off Right by Getting to Know God

New Year - 2012

New Year - 2012

To begin the year with God is more important than anything else in this world. The Bible says in Isaiah 55:6-7: “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon”.

 

The dawning of a new year serves to remind us that we are all marching through time, heading for eternity. Awaiting each traveler is either a glad and glorious heaven in the presence of God, or a sad and sorrowful hell, banished from God. The eternal Son of God entered into time as the man Christ Jesus to make a way for sinful man to approach God and enter into life eternal. His death, burial and resurrection have fully accomplished this objective so that Jesus now proclaims in John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me”.

GLMX #69: Just Jesus: Some of the Greatest Things Ever Said About the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived

The Angel said in Matthew 1:21, “And she [Mary] shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.”

If you don’t know who Jesus Christ is, allow me to introduce you to Him from the powerful testimonies of others:

Philip Schaff: “Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander the Great, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon; without science and learning, He shed more light on things human and divine than all philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of school, He spoke such words of life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet; without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art, and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times.”

Kenneth Scott Latourette: “As the centuries pass, the evidence is accumulating that, measured by His effect on history, Jesus is the most influential life ever lived on this planet.”

Henry Ward Beecher: “Jesus painted no pictures. Yet some of the greatest paintings of Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci received their inspiration from Him. Jesus wrote no poetry; but Dante, Milton, and scores of the world’s greatest poets were inspired by Him. Jesus composed no music; but Haydn, Handel, Beethoven, and Bach reached their highest perfection in the symphonies and oratorios they composed in His praise. Every sphere of human greatness has been influenced by this humble carpenter of Nazareth!”

Napoleon Bonaparte: I know men; and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for him.

Charles H. Spurgeon: “I have a great need for Christ; I have a great Christ for my need.”

The nativity

The nativity

For many of us, Christmas is one of our favorite times of the year. It is nice to get a break from our normal routines and to spend time with our family and friends. Many families have special Christmas customs and traditions, involving decorations, meals, songs, and the exchanging of gifts with loved ones. All of these things are very nice, but is this the true meaning of Christmas?

 

It seems that every year the stores put up their Christmas displays earlier and earlier, and that each year there is increasing pressure to buy more and more expensive gifts. There also seems to be a competition to see who can put up the largest and most elaborate display of decorations. With all of these things, it is very easy to lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas.

But as we strip away the layers of glitter, commercialism, and tradition that surround the celebration of Christmas, the holiday’s true meaning becomes easier to see. Here we can see a star that reminds us of the star that the wise men followed two thousand years ago while seeking the newborn King. Who is this King? As the angels said to the shepherds in Luke 2:11, “Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord”. Christmas is the day that we celebrate the birth of the Christ—Jesus the Son of God.
