Is There An Answer? Part 2 (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign, Day 442 since Jan. 20, 2017 / Day 809 since Jan. 1, 2016)


Honoring and giving glory to God and Jesus Christ, and remembering their servant Billy Graham by preaching an adaptation of one of his powerful messages.

TEXT: John 3:1-7:

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Jesus tells us that the answer to the world’s problems is that man must be born again. When Nicodemus heard these words, he asked Jesus, “How can these things be?” Many have asked a similar question when confronted with this answer. When I first heard it, I laughed, as some of you are smiling inside right now, although I knew that human nature needed a transformation.

The necessity of the rebirth was taught by John Wesley and George Whitefield, and it led Britain into a religious revival which almost all historians agree saved that country from a bloody revolution such as France was having at the time. It was Jesus’ words that Whitefield and Wesley used over and over again: “Ye must be born again.” What was meant by that?

When I heard it, I laughed. I said it couldn’t happen. Then one day I said, “I am going to give it a try.” So one night, without emotion — it is not an emotional experience, though it can be — very calmly and very quietly, I said, “All right, God, I am going to give You a try. I am going to do what You said to do. I am going to tell You I am willing. I don’t have the strength, but I am willing to turn from my sins, and I am really ready to open my heart to You.”

When I did that, something happened in my life. I can’t explain it to you, I can’t analyze it, I can’t put it in a test tube. But I will give you one illustration. I come from a part of the country where men look with bias on those who have a different colored skin than they have, and there is discrimination. When I received Christ, I began to look through different eyes at men of different races. The color was gone. I saw them as one of God’s creatures, no matter what color skin or shape of nose he had. The racial prejudice was gone. I began to love instead of being prejudiced.

My life was changed. It didn’t become perfect, and it is not perfect today. But I realized I had a new strength, a new power, and a new dynamic for living that gave me the ability to say “no” to temptations that normally come. I had found a new source of life. It wasn’t the type of religion that gives one a long face and droopy shoulders. It put a smile on my face, it gave me a spring in my step, a joy in my soul, and the happiness and peace I had longed for and looked for. What Jesus did for me, He can do for you. But, you must obey His words, “Ye must be born again.”

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!
