GO ON WITH GOD

Friend, the greatest need in your life is to live for
the Lord Jesus Christ.
I was sitting with a Christian friend the other day in
a cafeteria in Atlanta, and I mentioned a certain
person whom I had not seen for many years, a man of
God. This friend spoke up and said, "Yes, he is the

to live a Christ-life before a godless world.
Everywhere today, in the newspapers and magazines, in
the speeches of our national leaders, it is being said
