What is it in life that you’re looking for?
Is it wealth or fame? Do you want more?
I think about the many who’ve gone before us.
Do you think that any of them loves us?
No! In spite of man’s attempts to create wealth.
This cannot buy a cure for 100% good health!
In man’s pursuit for more riches and gold…
It cannot buy love or happiness, as I’ve been told!
In man’s attempts to build a “better machine.”
Nothing or no one, can make us 100% clean!
In man’s ambitions and many inventions…
We’ve many roads leading into different directions!
Governments come and nations will fall!
What will our life mean to us, after all?
If there’s something in life that you hope will last…
There’s hope for you now!
You just need to ask!
Only Jesus can bring to your life
a true purpose and meaning!
His mercy and grace…
You can be receiving!
With Jesus, a true love has already been decided!
Everything you’ll ever need… He’s provided!
Won’t you come to him now? Please don’t wait!
Please do it now!
Before it’s too late!
