Jesus Is Real, Says Josephus

Josephus was a famous 1st century Jewish historian whose writings are still referred to by scholars today as being valuable sources of information.  Here is what Josephus, a non-Christian, had to say about the man named Jesus:
Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was [the] Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day.

Won't you put your faith in Jesus to save you from your sins today?

Jesus Changed My Life

I should have been happy but I was not.  It seemed I had everything but I felt like I was missing something.  God began to draw me to Jesus when I became pregnant with my first child.  That was the beginning of 10-year journey of looking for Jesus, learning about Jesus, accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior and now  following Jesus.

As the words to the old hymn say:
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!

O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.
 'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus by Louisa Stead, 1882-- written after she watched her husband drown.
