Another Kind of Bright-Campus Crusade for Christ founder Bill Bright died over the weekend at age 81 after a half-century of successful evangelism. You might look down upon the energetic proselytizing or the simplistic Four Spiritual Laws that made up the archetypal CCC tract, but they brought quite a few people to Christ through their outgoing, straight-forward evangelism. It's worth looking at that four-pack as we send up a prayer for Bright's family (1)-God LOVES you and offers a wonderful PLAN for your life. -Yes, He does. (2) -Man is SINFUL and SEPARATED from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God's love and plan for his life. -On our own, we're toast. We can debate how total our depravity is, but we can't get their on our own (3)- Jesus Christ is God's ONLY provision for man's sin. Through Him you can know and experience God's love and plan for your life. -"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me' isn't politically correct, but it's dead on. God's perfect, we're not, and Jesus died to bridge that gap; check out the graphic in that section. To borrow from the old Point of Grace song, there's both a bridge to cross that great divide and a cross to bridge that divide. (4)-We must individually RECEIVE Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives. -God doesn't have grandkids. You don't get to God by going to church, or having Christian family members. Those might be simplistic, but the Gospel isn't designed to be rocket science.
