In one of Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman’s meetings a man arose to give the following remarkable testimony: "I got off at the Pennsylvania depot as a tramp, and for a year I begged on the streets for a living. One day I touched a man on the shoulder and said, ’Mister, please give me a dime.’
"As soon as I saw his face, I recognized my father. ’Father. don’t you know me?’ I asked. Throwing his arms around me, he cried, ’I have found you; all I have is yours.’ Men, think of it, that I, a tramp, stood begging my father for ten cents, when for eighteen years he had been looking for me to give me all he was worth!"
So the heavenly Father is waiting for you. Why not receive the unsearchable riches in Christ now?
