Have you ever bought or signed up for something and later regretted that you had not done more investigating before you put your name on the dotted line? Are any of you old enough to remember record clubs? If you signed up then you received 10 LPs for one dollar and supposedly no obligation after that. The the day after your records showed up then another one followed like the next day. An invoice followed with the record you did not order. If you didn't want it then you had to pack it and mail it back before the next record showed up at your door. Very annoying! Or even worse, have you ever signed up for Sports Illustated just to get the free jersey or football of your favorite team? Then after your initial subscription ran out the magazines and the invoices kept coming? Everyday? They would call and offer reduced rates if you signed up for the next 7 years. I did. I kept saying, "I only wanted the jersey! Quit sending me invoices!" It was particularly annoying during hockey season, when there wasn't even a temptation to keep the mag.
However, there is one thing I signed up for years ago that just keeps getting more better. My faith in Christ. I am more sold on Jesus than I was when I first accepted Him 38 years ago. And the more I learn about my faith, the more I am convinced everybody needs some. I have been reading all the arguments I can find recenly from those who chose not to believe in Christ. Some who argue He wasn't the Son of God. Others argure He didn't die on the cross. Some who argue He died but was not resurrected. To a person, these arguments are weak and without merit. What is clear is that they DO NOT WANT TO BELIEVE.
How many things have you ever been involved in that just gets better with time? I would dare say not many. But if you will honestly investigate the person of Jesus Christ and His claims you will find them to be true. I am more convinced today than when I first believed that Jesus was carried into the tomb a lifeless corpse and walked out three days later a Risen Savior! He is risen! He is risen indeed!
