The Bible is unique, because in it we see God Himself speaking to humanity. In Isaiah 55, the prophet says, "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near." Then God Himself speaks to humanity: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord." In the Old Testament, God spoke to us through the prophets. In the New Testament, He spoke to us through His Son. And never did God speak so clearly as at the cross. In it, He expressed His great love for humanity. In it, He provided salvation for a lost and dying world. Now we can tell this world to seek the Lord while He may be found. Now we can tell them that through the new birth, God's thoughts can be our thoughts, and His ways can be our ways. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
