“You Need a Living Christ!”

“He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:4) 

If your faith stops at the cross, it misses the blessing of the fullest revealing of Christ! You need a Savior who not merely two thousand years ago went to death to redeem you, but one who also is alive to walk by your side in loving companionship!

You need a Savior who can hear your prayers, to whose feet you can creep in penitence when you have sinned; to whom you can call for help when the battle is going against you. You need a Savior who is interested in all the affairs of your common life, and Who can assist you in every time of need. You need a Christ who can be a real friend; loving you, keeping close beside you, able to sympathize with your weaknesses. You need a Savior who will come into your life, and will save you, not by one great act of centuries past, but by a life warm and throbbing with love today, and living again in you.
