The Greatest Story, Often Untold


When I was a very young child I heard the name of Jesus mentioned occasionally but I had no idea why it should matter to me. Then, there came that Saturday morning in September when “His story” was told to me. I listened that day and I learned who He was. I then made a deliberate choice to “receive” Him (John 1:12) and placed my “faith” in Him (Eph. 2:8).


Now here we are in a society where God has been, in large measure, expunged from the public arena. Churches, by the tens of thousands, have abandoned their sacred duties and quickly devolved into unbiblical social clubs. Schools across the land have become indoctrination centers peddling their so-called progressive agendas of secularism, humanism and hedonism. Since the mere mention of God in many quarters can get you censored, expelled, fired or even arrested, we have several generations of our citizens who have no clue who Jesus is.


So often, when Jesus is mentioned, the narrative given is a watered-down distortion of the facts.


So, despite all the technology we have at our disposal, the great story of the Saviour leaving Heaven and coming to Earth is still unknown to multiplied millions of people. Many of those untold multitudes are right here in America.


The Greatest Story Details

In the 39 Books of the Bible’s Old Testament, you will find numerous prophetic (predictive) statements that herald the coming of the Messiah (Christ). The details are there and the message is clear.


“To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.”—Acts 10:43.


And then came the events in Bethlehem. His unique virgin birth put God’s grand plan of redemption into motion.

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”—Matt. 1:21.


Follow Him from Bethlehem to Nazareth to Jerusalem. Listen to the Sermon on the Mount and His other recorded teachings. The truths that He declares are eternal verities that impact life here on Earth (John 10:10) and offer the provision of everlasting life (John 3:16), which we all need.


His story, the greatest story, reaches its apex when He is crucified in Jerusalem (Luke 23:33), and after three days and nights in a borrowed tomb, He rises triumphantly from death (Matt. 28:5–10). That’s why we can declare the message of the Gospel.


“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”—I Cor. 15:3, 4.


Following His resurrection He ascended back to Heaven (Acts 1:9–11) and now sits with the Father advocating for us (I John 2:1–2).


The Great Story, His Great Salvation

Yes, salvation is now offered to all of us because of Him.


“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”—John 3:36.


Instead of winding up in the misery of Hell, because of Jesus, you can go to blissful and beautiful Heaven when you die.


Consider who He is (our Creator, the Son of God, God, the Son, the promised Messiah, Saviour and Lord) and consider what He can do. He can forgive your sin debt, birth you into God’s family and reserve a place for you in Heaven. You can have all He offers if you will admit you are a sinner, acknowledge Him as Saviour, put your trust in Him and call on Him to get it done.


Don’t put it off, do it today.
