"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

The Forgotten Verse of “Because He Lives”

Many years ago, Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote a song entitled “Because He Lives.” Since then, that song has been sung in churches and around the world for decades. However, it seems as though the very reason Bill and Gloria wrote this song has been forgotten.

At our church last night we sang “Because He Lives” minus the following verse. How sad!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he gives;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

I love that verse. And there is no greater verse for time in which we are now living. There is hope because He lives.
