Imagine now that you are sitting with me in my corner study room. Our eyes lock I say to you, from my heart to yours. “Do you know a better way to live?”
I know, I know, it will not eradicate evil people or somehow solve all problems. Only Christ’s return at the end of the age will do that!
But, in the meantime, to the extent that it does work, do you know a better way for 7 billion unique individuals to live at peace with one another? Or even, in your family
Yes, I know there will be differences between individual consciences. There will be some disappointments and possible material losses, but nothing compared with the benefits!
Please—really—try it on for size, for you: imagine the good that will come from it in each of the following ways:
- In your family and in your marriage.
- In your community.
- In your country.
- In our world.
- In your future, with God’s blessing, actually to live when
Christ is King on earth, as Billy Graham described!
Open your heart and your mind to the beauty and the unique greatness of this wonderful truth and let it fill your soul and your dreams of the future. Nothing else comes close. It is the best way to live! And every word of this message comes directly from the lips of Jesus Christ himself, as directed by the Creator of the universe! (John 12:49, 50). Listen now to Billy Graham:
The signs of insecurity and the shouts of revolution heard around the world are perhaps the death rattle of an era in civilization—perhaps they signal the end of civilization as we have known it. Many believe that God is silent, even perhaps that He is unmoved by the degrading acts of men, but Scripture promises that when the fullness of time comes, He will act dramatically. He will send His Son, Jesus Christ, back to earth “to rescue us from the present evil age” (Galatians 1:4). He is the Lord of history; He is the Lord of the future; and most important for those living now… He is Lord today. Where do you stand now with the One you will someday bow to as Judge or Savior?
The storms of change in the world are no surprise to God; nothing we see in the headlines takes Him by surprise. Events are moving rapidly toward a climax, but it will be according to God’s timing. The most victorious headline one day will read:
“MY SON HAS RETURNED AS THE RIGHTFUL RULER OF THE WORLD!!”
Before that time comes, however, God wants to first rule in our hearts. “STORM WARNING.” (p. 45) Billy Graham
We know the supreme importance of the Great Commandment and the Golden Rule. Let them rule our lives today.
Today—I hope you make the joyful decision to live the Golden Rule!
For me, Golden Rule living brings meaning, purpose, and value to my life.
I am at peace with living it because every word of it comes from the lips of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as he was directed by God himself! It is supreme truth.
The Golden Rule. Truly, the best way for we humans to live together!
