Is there something missing from your life, but you can’t put your finger on what it is? Have you searched high and low for answers, for purpose, for truth, but come up empty?
On yesterday’s and today’s broadcast, we have a recorded message from a man who’s been there. In his young adult years, Lon Solomon did it all and tried it all in his search for life’s ultimate meaning.
He grew up in a Jewish home. He went off to college, fell headlong into the drug culture, and was floating aimlessly through life. He looked into all kinds of religions and philosophies, including Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. He even returned to his Jewish roots in the hopes of finding some peace. But his soul was hurting and nothing gave him solace for long.
Then, in an unlikely meeting, a street evangelist introduced him to Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 28:16 says, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation.” Lon tripped over the stone of Jesus, the Messiah, but fell to his knees in faith before Him.
Maybe like Lon you’ve tried everything you can think of to find life answers that work, but you’ve come up empty. I hope you’ll spend some time with us today as we revisit this classic broadcast.
I also encourage you to contact us at Focus on the Family if you’d like someone to talk to. We’re here to listen to your story and offer hope. Call 1-800-AFAMILY (232-6459). We’d love to share with you how you can find peace through God. You may also be interested in a free online booklet we’ve written called, “Coming Home: An Invitation to Join God’s Family.”
The question of where you’ll spend eternity is too big a question to leave unanswered. If Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart, answer it. Open the door. Invite Jesus in. You won’t regret it.
And don’t forget you can hear our program, “A Jewish Believer’s Story,” on your local radio station, online, or via our free, downloadable mobile phone app. Dr. Solomon is the senior pastor of the McLean Bible Church in Mclean, Virginia.
