     One asked a recently converted Chinese, “How did you find Jesus?” A perplexed look came on the face of the new convert. In broken English he said, “I no find Jesus. Jesus found me! Jesus not lost, I the lost one!” How hopelessly lost we are until the seeking Shepherd finds us: “I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant” (Ps. 119:176).–W. B. Knight

     God searches for us

The major emphasis of all false religions is on man’s search for God. The major emphasis of Christianity is on God’s search for man: “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). –W. B. Knight

     Three simple facts

An old man testified that it took him forty years to learn three simple things: that he couldn’t do anything to save himself, that God didn’t expect him to, and that Christ had done it all. –King’s Business

     Two kinds of religion

There are only two kinds of religion in the world. The one says, “Nothing in my hands I bring”; the other says, “Something in my hands I bring.” –W. B. Knight

     Why so often?

George Whitefield, when asked why he preached so often on the text, “Ye must be born again,” replied that it was because ye must be born again –W. B. Knight

     Obituary column

As a man read the obituary column of his morning’s newspaper, he observed that his name was listed among the decedents. Angrily he threw the paper down and phoned the editor. “This is terrible. Your error is inexcusable. It will cause me no end of embarrassment. How could you do such a thing?”

The editor apologized and expressed regret. No explanation however, could mitigate the offended man’s anger. Finally the editor quipped, “Cheer up, fellow! I’ll put your name in the birth column tomorrow and give you a fresh start!” God gives a fresh start to the spiritually dead one when they penitently turn from sin to the Saviour: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow” (Isa.

1:18). –W. B. Knight
