A big lump of something lay for centuries in a shallow pool in North Carolina. People passing by just saw an ugly lump and walked on.
One day a poor man saw the heavy lump, and thinking it would be a good thing to hold his door open, took it home. Later a geologist stopped at the poor man’s home and identified the lump as the biggest piece of gold ever found east of the Rockies.
Many people see Jesus as only a historical figure. Friend, you must see Jesus as the only One who can save you from the penalty of your sin.
