And I know that his command brings eternal life.
In the Christmas Broadcast for 1939, the King of England sent out this message:
“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.
And he replied, “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
I have come into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness. If anyone hears my message and does not obey it, I will not judge him. I came, not to judge the world, but to save it. Whoever rejects me and does not accept my message has one who will judge him. The words I have spoken will be his judge on the last day! This is true, because I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has commanded me what I must say and speak. And I know that his command brings eternal life. What I say, then, is what the Father has told me to say. (The Bible, John 12:44).
“Can you tell me, Freddie, who made you?”
“God made part of me?”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean he made me little, I grow’d the rest myself.”
