Corrie ten Boom

Was one of the greatest Missionary Evangelists of our era.
Her life was spent trying to win the lost. I hope you will share
this writing of her's with others. She would have loved that.

 

During the war in Vietnam, I was permitted to visit a hospital. I
talked to the men who were wounded. In a ward with about twelve
patients, I had an opportunity to speak. I told them about the
Living Jesus, who is with us, who loves us so much that He died for
us, and who now lives for us. He is at the same time at the right
Hand of the Father, praying for us. I also told them that He said:


Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will
give you rest.
Matthew 11: 28

I showed them what a joy it was that we could come to Him.


Afterwards I had a talk with the man sitting next to me. He was
not much more than a boy, and seriously wounded. He said to me
"What you told about Jesus is so beautiful, so joyful! But I cannot
do what you said and go to Him. I have heard about the Lord, but
I have always blasphemed, When there were boys in my class who
followed the Lord, I teased them. There has been hatred in my
heart ~ hatred against God ~ and now I know that I am seriously
wounded. But I have been to bad, I cannot go to the Lord. I am
ashamed of what I have done, of how I have tried to keep others
away from Him! Now don't tell me I can ask Him to help me. I
am a very wicked fellow.

"There is only one kind of person who cannot come to Jesus," I told
him. They are the ones who who think and say, "I'm so good, I don't
need forgivness, I don't need the Saviour." They are the Pharisees,
and you can read in the Bible that Jesus could not and would not help
the people who were so proud of themselves, and who thought they
were so good.

You are quite different. You think you are too bad. You are not.
Jesus bore the sin of the whole world, and that is a lot. He has also
borne your sins on the cross: sins of hatred, of blasphemy, of all that
you have done. You can go to Him. Jesus hates sin, but loves the
sinners, and so many of His promises are for sinners. You are not good
enough, you are not able. It is Jesus who is able and He is your Saviour,
Just talk to Him! Tell Him what you have done, and what you have
been, and then ask His forgiveness! In the Bible in Psalms 103 it says
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our
transgressions from us, so that is a long way from us. so when you
bring your sins to Jesus He will remove them as if they never were.

Suddenly I saw that all the men in the ward were listening, I asked,
"Who of you will now come to Jesus as a sinner? When you know you
are a sinner you can be forgiven." Many men in that ward responded.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and
to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
