Picture yourself out on a lake, drown­ ing. You’re going down for the last time. The life guard sees you from the shore. He throws you a life pre­ server with a long rope on it. It lands right beside you. Do you get the picture? Salvation is available. You grasp hold of that life preserver, be­ cause the moment you do, you will be pulled safely to shore. You’re in a much worse state spiritually. God is giving you an eternal life preserv­ er, the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is available; however, you can reject it. Then there comes the penetrating question from the Lord, “How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation ?” The other day I was talking with a student from New York University. After I had explained the whole plan of salvation, he pointed out, “I know all of this, but how do I become a Christian?” A lot of people reading these lines know all about Jesus Christ. What we’ve been saying in that sense is not new. The way to receive is through personal appro­ priation. Receive Jesus Christ, the Son of God, into your heart and life. Blessedly He will come to dwell with­ in your heart. You see, it’s one thing to say; “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” It’s quite another thing to bow humbly before the cross and confess “Oh, God, I’m a sinner!” If you want eternal life, however, that’s what you’ll have to do. Perhaps God has brought this lit­ tle message to you for a real purpose. He wants you to see Calvary. What are you going to do? Will you simply answer as did men in the past, “Cru­ cify Him?” Won’t you bow before the cross just now and say, “Lord, I believe that You died, shedding Your precious blood for me. I am sure You are the Son of God, and that in the body that You arose from the grave. Lord Jesus, come into my heart. I make room for Thee!” Will you say this just now? 4
