Testimonials
 

« I took the Mailbox Club courses when I was a child.   I remember being very excited to receive each next lesson as it came in the mail.  The courses gave me fundamental knowledge about God, the Bible and Jesus at a young age.  I am grateful to my parents for putting me through the courses. »

« The lessons have brought me closer to the Lord in knowing what he has done for us.  Since I have been taking these lessons, I will give you one of my testimonies.  I was diagnosed with lung cancer and through a lot of prayer I am now in remission and I am giving all the praise to my Lord.  It also taught me how much the Lord loves us and forgives us, no matter what we do.  And oh, how I love him.  I am so glad I was saved by his grace and know him as my Saviour. »

« I am french-speaking but I decided to take the English courses because for me, the words really touched my heart.  When I’d work on the Bible courses it was  a time of peace, and I felt closer to the Lord.  The courses are easy but there is so much to learn at the same time.  I won’t forget all the things that I learned from them.  It has helped me to be able to share the Word with others.  I brought my parents to the Lord before they died.  My son wanted to die and I shared with him and know that he believes in God.  The courses are a wonderful gift. »

« I have been taking these Bible study courses since my early teens and now I’m in my thirties!  They’ve equipped me with wisdom, truth, encouragement and hope to faithfully serve the Lord.  They’ve kept me from Satan’s deceit and given me a deeper understanding of God’s love.  Praise be to God for this wonderful ministry! »

« These courses mean everything to me.  I feel lost when I don’t have one to complete.  I wait in total anticipation for a new one to come in the mail.  It is amazing how much I learn.  Always, always, looking forward to learning more. »
 
                                Suzete – Ontario, CANADA
 
« I am Portuguese Canadian. English is my second language.  I really enjoy working on the Bible Courses, but I have difficulty with the English, reading and writing because I never went to school to learn.  I have learned English through my Bible study.  I am very happy with the friends I met during my study.  Every time I read or talk about the Bible study I feel like I am talking to GOD because I really believe in Him.  He’s the source of my life. »

Dear friends,
 

Do you like to watch people? I find it very interesting to observe how people act. While sitting in a hospital emergency room yesterday, I had the opportunity to hear and see some things that I would not have guessed if I had been asked to predict what I would see and hear. One elderly lady was on her hands and knees as she sought relief from a pounding headache. A younger lady told the people around her that she was 36 years old and couldn’t wait to get out of the country to escape the cold. She went on to say that she was expecting and that she had a daughter twenty years ago. A young lady beside her told her that she had been waiting six hours for the results of a blood test.

We spend a great deal of time waiting, don’t we? Sometimes it is to see a health care professional and other times it is to be served at a store or a mechanic’s garage. As we age and have more doctors’ appointments than when we were younger, we should appreciate the good health that we enjoy, if we do. Recently, we were saddened to learn of the passing of a daughter of friends in Ontario, whom we visited 18 months ago. Please pray for Brian and Sharon as they grieve.

In our church small group, everyone has either a health challenge or a work challenge or both. Our pastor’s wife, Melissa, has been living with several health challenges in recent years. Pastor Brad is currently teaching on the book of Job and my heart goes out to those who are experiencing physical and emotional pain.

One man who survived a very difficult ordeal was Louis Zamperini, whose life story is portrayed in a film that Karen and I watched. What I didn’t know is that Louis came to faith in Christ four years after he was rescued in 1945, having been a prisoner of war for two and a half years. Dr. Billy Graham wrote about Louis in his book “Nearing Home”: “At ninety four years old, he traveled from his home in California to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he graciously appeared at the Billy Graham Library. For several hours he shook people’s hands and autographed copies of the book Unbroken, his life’s story. The following day, he rode two hours to my home where we had lunch together. It had been many years since we had visited. Louis patiently answered my questions as I asked him to relay his experiences that led up to his conversion.”

The story continues: “When Louis was rescued in 1945 and was welcomed home as a war hero, he enjoyed short-lived celebrity, followed by hard times. Humanly speaking, he had reason to be bitter and cynical. His wife, though, persuaded him to attend our 1949 crusade in Los Angeles where we conducted evangelistic meetings and preached the Gospel for six straight weeks. When Louis returned the second night, instead of slipping out early as he had planned to do when the invitation was given, he said that the Holy Spirit gripped his heart, and he walked the aisle into a prayer room where he repented of his sin, giving his life wholly to the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Last evening, I was relieved that the person I was with was well enough to be discharged. Another person was released at the same time and as the wheelchairs approached, I joked: “It’s a race to see who gets to the exit first!” For some people, life is a marathon; for others it is a sprint. The important thing is to know our destination. Mark Hitchcock, a pastor in Oklahoma, shares this: “Perhaps you’ve read about the weathered tombstone in an old cemetery in Indiana that bears this epitaph:

                        Pause, stranger, when you pass me by;

                        As you are now, so once was I,

                        As I am now, so you will be,

                        So prepare for death and follow me.

            An unknown passerby read those words and etched this reply below them:

                        To follow you I’m not content,

                        Until I know which way you went.”   

Scripture for the weekend: “You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.” Psalm 119:114 (NKJV) 

Thought for the weekend:  “The gospel is that God connects to you not on the basis of what you’ve done (or haven’t done) but on the basis of what Jesus has done, in history, for you. And that makes it absolutely different from every other religion or philosophy.” – Timothy Keller (from his book “Jesus the King”)
 
 
By His grace,

How to have eternal life

Epicurus, the Greek philosopher, said: « Each of us leaves life with the feeling that he has just been born, » while according to the Arabic proverb, « Death is closer to us than the eyelid of the eye. »

The thoughtful man therefore thinks of the afterlife, but only one throughout the history of mankind has triumphed over death; one who spoke with authority and simplicity of eternal life – Jesus Christ.

What is eternal life?
Eternal life is a life that never ends, and moreover, has a spiritual dimension. Jesus told His listeners, « I tell you the truth, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. » The Gospel according to John 5:24.
His listeners were alive, but because of sin (and all are sinners) they were dead spiritually. Many brilliant men are nevertheless agnostics, atheists, because they are spiritually dead. Their relationship with God is broken, for they do not know Him. Jesus said to His Father, « Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. » John 17:3
 
You and eternal life
« Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made Him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about His Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. » First epistle of John 5:10-12.
The theme of the Holy Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is that of the Redeemer, the Son of God. Over 300 prophecies were fulfilled to the letter in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.It is God speaking to you and if you do not believe in this message, or if you modify it, you make God a liar and you bring upon yourself everlasting destruction, far from the presence of the Lord.But, if by faith you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, you will live forever.
Jesus knocks at the door of your life. He wants to give you eternal life. You can experience the forgiveness of sin, peace and communion with God, and the power of a new and spiritual life. This life also has an eternal dimension; therefore, death is not the end but the dawn of an eternal and glorious day in the presence of Jesus Christ and His Father.
 
How do we receive eternal life?
« For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. » John 3:16. 
What needs to be done to inherit eternal life? We must trust in Jesus Christ. Sin caused death: spiritual and physical. Every man is spiritually dead and all die physically. Jesus paid the debt of our sin and therefore, if we are willing to turn from our sins and trust Him, He will forgive us and give us eternal life, for « the Son gives life to whom He is pleased to give it. » John 5.21
 
Can we know that we have eternal life?
The apostle John completed his first epistle with the words, « I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. » 1 John 5:13. Jesus gave this assurance to the repentant thief, telling him, « today you will be with Me in paradise. » The Gospel according to Luke 23:43
 
Can you lose eternal life?
In this case it would not be eternal. Moreover, Jesus said, « And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose none of all that He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. » John 6:39 & 40. Speaking of His « sheep” He says: « I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of My hand. » John 10:28. As Jesus gives eternal life to all who trust in Him, He also keeps.
 
It’s Your Decision « For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son … Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him. » John. 3:17, 18 & 36
These verses in the Gospel of John say that you have the responsibility for your eternal fate in your hands. Jesus has done all that is necessary for your salvation and now offers you eternal life. « He who believes has everlasting life. » John 6:47.That is His promise.
What will you do with Jesus? Draw near to God in prayer and tell Him with all your heart that you trust in Jesus Christ in order to receive His salvation and eternal life.
 
Let us know of your decision so that we can rejoice with you and send you literature to help you in your new life of faith in Jesus Christ.
