Are in Need of God

General Grant was once approached by one of his officers expressing the fullness of life, the victory and the inner joy and peace that are in Jesus Christ. The General reacted positively accepting the beloved Lord.

The officer went on saying, “The kingdom of Heaven earned a lot by your receiving and accepting the faith in God.”

The General responded, “God is not in need of great ones but even great ones are indeed in need of God.”

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: العظماء يحتاجون إلى اللَّه.

St-Takla.org Divider

God in His love looks for and seeks all.

No prejudice for rich or against poor, great or meek.

As He shed His precious blood a propitiation for all.

O Master, I need You.

Who can fill my heart but You!

Who can let me enter into glory except You!

Only with You alone is my satisfaction.
