Note of November 4, 2013 – "Each of us can find ways to help specific people we know encounter the Gospel. Thousands of believers across the nation, in every state, are taking the opportunity to do just that through the My Hope America outreach."
I’ve recently prepared what may well be my last message to our nation. I have prayed a great deal about this. The program is called The Cross, and you can see it on television beginning November 7.
I hope you won’t watch the program alone. It’s intended to be watched with someone you know — a loved one, friend, or co-worker — who needs Jesus Christ.
With all my heart, I want to remind Americans of God’s amazing love and, as simply and clearly as I can, call people to "a repentance that leads to salvation" (2 Corinthians 7:10, ESV). The program shows moving stories of real individuals, young Americans, whose lives have been completely transformed by the power of the Gospel. Woven around those stories is a message I believe God has given me for people in our nation today.
On a television talk show the other night, I heard a commentator say, "This country is headed straight to Hell." When you listen to the news day after day or simply pay attention to what goes on around you, it’s not hard to understand why someone might say that. Ungodliness floods our land. Moral decline has become normal. We see killing, theft, dishonesty, greed, and open immorality everywhere. Many flaunt what they do and even demand public approval. The Bible says, "They proclaim their sin … ; they do not hide it." (Isaiah 3:9).
But this is no cause for despair. Jesus has always sought out sinners, called them to Himself, and redeemed all who respond. The Bible says, "Where sin increased, grace abounded all the more" (Romans 5:20). Zacchaeus was a corrupt tax collector notorious for abusing his authority and cheating on a grand scale, someone we might today call a white-collar criminal. Jesus took notice of him, loved him, and decided to go to his house for a visit. We don’t have a record of their heart-to-heart conversation, but we do know that Zacchaeus responded in open repentance and faith. Then and there, Jesus announced his salvation. ….
