Some people believe that history began the day they were born! While most of us realize the limitations of this mindset, it does not mean that your birth and life are not important. <em><strong>They are</strong></em>, especially to God. One of my favorite quotes says: “Before I made you in your mother’s womb, I chose you. Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work. . . ” God said that to a man named Jeremiah, a long time ago, and He is saying it again <em><strong>to you</strong></em> today! OK, but what’s with all the signs? We want you to ”Experience The Savior” and we hope that the signs will get your attention and cause you to think. The folks at Hamlin New Testament Church believe that God is thinking about you. In fact, He has had you in mind even before you were born! For the next four weeks, every Sunday afternoon, we will post some new things here at this web site about “Experiencing The Savior”. Our Sunday morning service (10 AM) will be coordinated with the topics here on this site. Please continue to check us out, every week, on the web or in person . . . let “the Experience” begin and let it continue!
Jesus Christ – The Right Man For the Job
We’ve all sat through job interviews at some point in our lives, right? We are asked about our previous job experiences, our skills, our schooling, our attitude, etc. The employer is looking for just the right person for the job. On the other hand, if that company desperately needs to hire an employee with a very particular set of skills, or with the right aggressive attitude, they might contact an employment agency to help them find that person. They really have to get the right person for the job.
Well, God the Father chose Jesus Christ to fulfill a very particular “job” – “to come to Earth to seek and save those who are lost.” God sent His only Son – fully God and fully man (talk about qualifications!) – a humble servant full of meekness, forgiveness and mercy. He didn’t come to judge the world, but to save it. And here’s a great truth – Jesus Christ is still hard at work today, doing the job that His Father called Him to over 2000 years ago. It’s extremely rare to find a person who really feels that his job is perfect for him. When it came to filling the position of Savior, God made the perfect choice: Jesus Christ – the right Man for the job!
I’m already on my way, aren’t I? Come back here next Sunday to find out!
