Behold! The Lamb of God.....

A Bible For Graduation

The Bible always speaks for itself. It tells one story about one God who claims that there is none beside Him with consistency and declares that man is a sinner who can only be redeemed by the sacrifice of a sinless Lamb of God, so that man can live evermore joyfully with the Creator of all things. Though it was written over 1,500 years on three different continents by 40 different authors from every walk of life, it has this crimson thread of the message of redemption through the sacrifice of the Blood of His only begotten Son binding it thoroughly, who is revealed to us all now in the end times as Jesus the Christ.

The world in its pride does not want to accept that a all powerful Creator God could sacrifice himself on behalf of His created humankind just because of HIS LOVE. Actually it mocks the message of the LAMB OF GOD who gave HIMSELF to redeem the lost humanity which has been sold to sin and its slavery. But God in His wisdom has chosen to SAVE THE FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD who believes and chooses to be rather foolish to the world than to be to God.

Be foolish to all men and be wise toward the all wise Creator. It is so easy to get saved through Jesus the Lamb of God that many are not ready to believe the message of the good news of salvation from sin and eternal life. It is so simple that many stumble.

Here we will see through a small story of how many sons of God foolishly fail to believe the simple message of salvation by faith fully to the end and after salvation strive to perfect themselves through their so called works, and therefore lose the abundant life that God had prepared for them. Only to realise at the end of their lives that they have missed to receive what had belonged to them already. Still yet the world completely forsakes this simple message of the Lamb of God who has come to give eternal life with God for their deserving life of eternal doom for their sins and thus redeem them for eternity. May God help us all to realise the precious finished work of our dear Lamb of God, which should make us realise that we can "Praise the Lord" for eternity for what He has already done for us. Personally, Even if I do not receive anything more than what I have already received from Jesus, I will still choose to be satisfied and serve Him the rest of my life. I will choose to wear off for Jesus than to get rust off by the world.

Each believer can choose to be thankful for eternity ahead just because Jesus the Lamb of God have taken away their past, present and future sins upon Himself and set them free on the cross of calvary 2000 years ago itself. Praise the Lord!

A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.

As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study.

His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold.

Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible?" And stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go visit him.

He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son.

When he arrived at his father's house, sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully underlined a verse,

As he read those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible.

It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words...


What can we learn from this story? God our Creator and Father of all humans has given to us the Bible through a gift wrapped box of the heralds of the salvation message which all humans are looking for. When we hear the message of salvation and still live in unbelief, we have rejected the Bible in which God our Father has written our names in gold to help us live joyfully which we have desired. Then we have gone away expecting the world to provide satisfaction which God has already purchased for us in Christ Jesus who is the key inside the Bible. When the world doesn't satisfy our spiritual inner thirst even after living successfully in the world, and one day we look back to God and realize to return back Him. But when we visit our home later in life and come to realize that the key to salvation and satisfaction has already been purchased by our Heavenly Father and lies in the same book of the Bible which He has presented to us in our youth, alas we have wasted our life to gain nothing but emptiness from the world.

Jesus said those same words
"Paid in full" and He died giving you eternal life with God (John 19:30). Will you choose to believe this message and live joyfully daily "Praising the Savior" for what He has done for you. May be if you have not yet received Jesus as your Savior, you can invite Him now believing that He has paid the price to forgive all your past, present and future sins, He will surely come in to your heart and live with you intimately from today. THE BIBLE SPEAKS ALL ABOUT THE STORY OF THE LAMB OF GOD WHO HAS PAID THE FULL REQUIRED PRICE TO GOD, TO SAVE YOU FROM HELL FIRE AND GIVE ABUNDANT HEAVENLY LIFE ON EARTH. BELIEVE AND REJOICE TO LIVE FOR HIM THE REST OF YOUR LIFE IN HUMBLE SERVICE TO GLORIFY HIM WHO HAS GIVEN HIS SINLESS LIFE JUST FOR YOU. Blessings....
