The statistics are daunting. More and more young people raised in Christian homes abandon the faith when they leave for college. Growing up, they quoted Bible verses, worshiped every Sunday, and knew all the right things to say. So what went wrong? It’s because they’ve been living on a borrowed faith instead of making it their own. They had religion, but they never had a relationship with Christ. What about you? Is your faith your faith, or is it a borrowed faith?
How Far Do I Have to Climb?
The most famous mountain in the world is Mt. Everest. People are drawn to it from all over the world, and more than 300 of them have died trying to reach the summit. But there is another hill just outside Jerusalem called the place of the skull or the hill of death. That is where Jesus died for the sins of the world, and in order to be saved, you do not have to climb that hill… all you need to do is bow at His feet and receive Him as your Savior.
