Have you found the source of real love?

Q: Can a person really find a soul mate to share the deepest things of life? — S.S.

A: A: Matchmaking has become a booming business in our culture’s restless search for a “soul mate.” Online services promise to bring light into your life by matching you up with someone just right for you. “Relationship experts” teach clients to practice “self-love” in order to attract a potential partner. One such expert wrote, “We have the power to create our own personal movie-like narratives, love stories based on our own desires and hopes.”

The subject of the soul has a prominent place in our thinking. Have you found the sole source of the real kind of love that can bring light into your life? Salvation in Jesus Christ is the only hope for your soul. Only He can illumine the dark corners of your life and give your soul satisfaction. The soul was made by God and for God and without Him it is restless and in secret torment.

You can search for the perfect spouse. You can search for some religion that fits your particular lifestyle. But your search will never come to a satisfying end. Or you can commit your life completely to the Lord who brings true and lasting fulfillment to the human soul who sincerely seeks Him in truth. Let Christ transform your life so that you will have a glow on your face, a spring in your step and joy in your soul. He is the One who knows your longings and deepest needs.

The Bible tells us to “Humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls” (James 1:21, NLT).

Archeology ultimately provides witnesses for Jesus

Q: What did Jesus mean when He said that the rocks would speak on His behalf? — R.S.

A: When the Pharisees told Jesus to silence His followers for proclaiming Him the King of glory, Jesus said, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out” (Luke 19:40). Jesus, Creator God, will always have a witness. His very creation is a witness and He will use whatever is necessary to proclaim salvation to the human race. The Lord simply gives mankind the privilege to testify to the great things He has done.

Archaeology is a sought-after adventure. Some enter this field, studying antiquities, to disprove the Bible. But when many brush the dust of the earth from their knees, they confess that Jesus is Lord! The very rocks do cry out that Jesus lives.

Archaeologist William Albright, born in Chile of missionary parents, stated, “There can be no doubt that archaeology has confirmed the substantial historicity of Old Testament tradition.” Jewish archaeologist Nelson Glueck said, “It may be stated categorically that no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a Bible reference. Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or in exact details historical statements in the Bible.”

Where do you stand among these men of history when it comes to Jesus Christ? Our creativity, our inner sense of right and wrong, our ability to love and reason — all bear witness to the fact that God created us in His image. The Bible says God “did not leave Himself without witness” (Acts 14:17). Look up on a starry night, and you will see the majesty and power of an infinite Creator.
