Jesus is our Message! We preach Jesus! We preach His Word, we preach His Love, we preach His Gospel, the Good News of Salvation, we preach faith in Him, we preach Him as the answer to all of our needs–physical, spiritual, mental and with hope for the future and Heaven at last! This Message answers all our questions, meets all our needs and is the solution to all the problems of the whole world if they would just listen and receive it and obey it!
What Jesus said is still true, regardless of nationality, country, color or creed: “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto Me!” (Jn.12:32). All we need to do is go out into the highways and the byways and the hedges and compel them to come in (Luk.14:23). We need to call them.
We have to bid them to come. Although we’re His bride, we’re also a type of the bridegroom calling them to come–wooing them by His Spirit. So show them love, His love! Point them to Him and constantly glorify Him, Jesus, and His Love! If they want Him, they will come, and His Spirit will explode in their hearts!
It’s all Jesus! Thank the Lord!

The tiny rural town of Akin in southern Illinois might not have a post office, but it can now count itself among the players on the national stage after an eighth-grade boy was barred from giving a graduation speech over its religious content.
Akin Community Grade School salutatorian Seth Clark submitted his speech for approval, the Benton Evening News said, but a local citizen complained about the content of the address, which included references to God and the Bible. So school officials told the 13-year-old he couldn’t deliver the speech, the paper reported.
“As a public school, it is our duty to educate students, regardless of how different they or their beliefs may be,” a statement from Akin Superintendent and Principal Kelly Clark to the paper reads. “While students are welcome to pray or pursue their faith without disrupting school or infringing upon the rights of others, the United States Constitution prohibits the school district from incorporating such activities as part of school-sponsored events, and when the context causes a captive audience to listen or compels other students to participate.” Continue reading “8th-grader barred from giving graduation speech over Bible verses. So he does the next best thing.”
