1        The Great Quest

You started on a great quest the moment you were born. It was many years perhaps before you realize it, before it became apparent that you were searching  – searching for something you never had – searching for something that was more important than anything in life.

At the loneliest moment in your life you have looked at other men and women and wondered if they too were seeking – something they couldn’t describe but knew they wanted and needed.

But you are not alone. All mankind is traveling with you, for all mankind is on this same quest. All humanity is seeking the answer to the confusion, the moral sickness, the spiritual emptiness that oppresses the world. All mankind is crying out for guidance, for comfort, for peace. “The way of peace have they not known,” the apostle Paul says concerning the human race (Romans 3:17).

As we look around, we find that there is little personal, domestic, social, economic, or political peace anywhere. Why? Because we all have the seeds of suspicion and violence, of hatred and destruction within us.

Peace can be experienced only when we have received divine pardon – when we have been reconciled to God and when we have harmony within, with our fellow man and especially with God.

Through the blood of the cross, Christ has made peace with God for us and is Himself our peace. If by faith we accept Him, we are justified by God and can realize the inner serenity that can come to man through no other means.

When Christ enters our hearts, we are freed of that haunting sense of sin. Cleansed of all feeling of contamination and unfitness, we can lift up our heads secure in the knowledge that we can look with confidence into the face of our fellow men.

When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. (Proverbs 16:7). Even more important, we know that we can stand before God in the hour of our death with this same feeling of peace and security.

We devise elaborate schemes for security, but have not found it. We grasp at every passing straw and even as we clutch, it disappears. In the restless sea of human passions, Christ stands steadfast and calm, ready to welcome all who will turn to Him, and accept the blessing of safety and peace.
