Many years ago Keith Davis of Crossroads Church tried bungee jumping and as he went over the edge to face a several hundred foot fall, the first thing he saw below was an air cushion with these words in big, black letters: DO YOU KNOW JESUS?
Needless to say as Keith quickly fell face first through the air, his life preserved by an elastic tether, he came straight at the question we must all answer before we die. In a very real sense, we literally bungee jump through an earthly life that is kept with but a fragile tether, subject to ending at any moment because of a car accident, illness, or sudden calamity. We are truly guaranteed nothing. If we never face this question like Keith did, if we never come to know Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord, then at the end of the fall He will not save us. The unanswered question, like the safety cushion, will disappear.
Over the next several months, Faith In Action will ask our community this simple question, beginning with our DO YOU KNOW JESUS billboard on the right at Douglas Boulevard and Highway 5 headed westbound. We invite you to travel with us, and answer the question for your family, and yourself. DO YOU KNOW JESUS?
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:11-13).
