A man once said to a servant of the Lord, "I am such a helpless, miserable sinner; there is no hope for me. I have prayed, and resolved and tried, and vowed until I am sick of my unavailing efforts."

"Do you believe that Christ died for our sins, and rose again?" was the reply.

"Of course I do."

"If he were here on earth in bodily and visible form, what would you do?"

"I would go to Him at once."

"What would you ask Him?"

"I would ask Him to forgive and save me."

"What would He answer?"

The man was silent.

"Well, what would He answer?"

At last the light came into his eyes, and a smile of peace stole over his face as he whispered, "He would answer, 'I will.'"

And the man went away believing, rejoicing "with joy unspeakable and full of glory." Since then he has been working faithfully for the Christ who saved him for nothing.
