Press Through To Jesus!

Vance Havner 90x115by Vance Havner

“Bring Him hither to me.” Matthew 17:17

The disciples had failed to cast out demons from this poor boy, but Jesus never fails. How good to know that when men fail and churches fail, we can still get through to Jesus. Back of all the fads and isms, the failure of the saints and the impotency of some churches, He stands, the same yesterday and today and forever.

You will find what you need in Jesus. Not in that book which you hope will reveal some magic open sesame on the next page. Not in some group or denomination that seems to have just what you’ve been looking for. Not in some self-induced experience you’ve been trying to work up. Not in a pet preacher or favorite cause or doctrine. All these will disappoint you. Our Lord said of the hungry multitude, “They need not depart.” You never need to leave Jesus for anything. He is Alph and Omega-and all the letters between-so you need not go outside His alphabet to complete the wording of your life.

All that is true and in any book or movement or group or doctrine or experience is already in Christ. Get through to the Source. “By him all things consist.”
