Dear  FRIENDS  IN  CHRIST,

In reading a story by Thomas D. Lea about a movie projector, I changed a few paragraphs and wanted to share my story with you:

It has now been eight months since I lost, or misplaced, the BIBLE that I have been using and referencing since  my early ministry in 1965.  It was perfect because the pages were written for me and they worked.  (I hope you feel that way about your Bibles!) The only problem is that for many years, I didn’t use it.  When I tried to do things on my own, the message was totally clear–without Christ and without His Word,  I WAS LOST.

In the late ‘70’s, I took another look at that black bound leather “BOOK” and found a note in it that read:  Before you try it your way, try mine.  Signed, Jesus……

Looking further I found another note that said to read  First John 4: 7-8 and learned right away that “God is Love.”  Then another note that said, go  back to the Old Testament and read First Chronicles 4: 9–10.  This prayer  answers  prayer!!!!!!!

In your Bibles are the words from John 3:16:  For God so loved the world that He gave to us, His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him, would not perish, but have everlasting life. They relate directly to Easter.  For with these words, what was once lost may be found.  It is time to look and find your Bibles again.  Take four minutes a day in scripture and watch how fast Christ finds you. Yes, I was lost and with Christ, I have been found and given a second chance.  I am looking forward to sharing GOD’S LOVE with you, for He HAS RISEN!
