Knowing the Truth


                                          Rev. A. Hocking



Recently we celebrated Valentine’s day.  The day when lovers of all ages send each other Valentine Cards to say, “I love you”.  Of course, generally the card is left unsigned, and the recipient has to try and guess who the sometimes unknown admirer is.   Strange to say, I got one once that wasn’t from my wife!   She was very good about it, but she did give me an odd look now and again.   We later discovered it was a joke from my daughter.


But since love is in the air, let me give you a poem about the greatest love ever known.


“The Love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell. It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell. Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill and every man a scribe by trade, to write the Love of God above, would drain the ocean dry, nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.”


My friend, God loves you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus to die on the cross the pay the penalty for your sin.  Have you ever thought just how much God loves you?  Have you ever thought of saying “Thank you” to Him?  


Why not do it today. Say, “Thank you Lord that Jesus came to this earth to pay the price for my sin. Please forgive me and come into my heart and life today and help me live for you from now on.”


I prayed that prayer 60 years ago.   I have never for one moment regretted it and life has been full of joy and peace ever since.
