Worship at Christ, Sunday at 9 am.
Sunday School classes at 10:15 am
Dear Friends in Christ,
“March came in like a lion…” and, at the point you read this, I am hoping we will be celebrating “the Lamb!”
Jesus also came into Jerusalem like a lamb. Isaiah 53 describes God’s Messiah ”He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth… like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.… Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong.” (Is. 53:8,14). Here is a secret! The Lamb becomes a Lion!
In The Blood of Lambs, Kamal Saleem described his life as a terrorist and how he hated Israel and America. He couldn’t stand Christians—that is, until God brought some Christian men into his life after he had a serious car accident. He saw how the Christian God answered prayer, so he cried out in desperation to his god “Allah, I want to hear that you love me. If you are real, speak to me.” He wrote: “I poured all my hope and faith into my prayer. But there was only silence from Allah. A deep sadness engulfed me. My whole life had been a vain masquerade, empty and void.” In despair he thought about using one of his many weapons to kill himself but then decided to call on the true God with these words: “If you are real, I want to know you!”
As often happens when Muslims come to Christ, Kamal had a vision and heard these words, “I am the Alpha and the Omega. I have known you since before the foundation of the world.”
Kamal answered, “My Lord, I will live and die for you!” And then he heard something that forever changed him: “Do not die for me. I died for you that you may live.” He writes: “At that moment I knew I met the Christian God. I knew I had met my Creator. There was no turning back”
Behold the Lamb of God! He will meet you too! See you in Church this Sunday!
