FORWARD

        You have made the greatest decision of your life. A deep, fundamental change has taken place within you. You have entered into a new life. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.” (2 Cor, 5:17 RSV) The purpose of this booklet is to help you lay hold of the riches that are to be found in Christ Jesus.

         Although you might not be able to take in the full meaning of all these wondrous truths at once, yet it is good for you to know about them at the beginning of your Christian life. As you grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord, they will come to mean more and more to you. It is only on the basis of what He has done for you that you will be able to live the Christian life.

 

 

Heaven above is softer blue,

Earth around is sweeter green.

Something lies in every hue,

Christian eyes have never seen.

Birds with gladder songs o’er flow.

Flowers with deeper beauties shine,

Since I know, as now I know,

I am His and He is mine.

                                        -W. Robinson

         “Blessed are they that wash their robes, that they may have the right to come to the tree of life and may enter in by the gates into the city.”  (Rev. 22:14)

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
