During this examination season all over the country children and youth prepare thoroughly as much as it depends on them to write the exams well. There is parental pressure, peer pressure and the personal pressure of doing well in the exams! Many lock themselves in to study, to understand, to grasp and to remember their subjects well so to answer all the questions right to get the most marks. Some try to get their hands on the “leaked” question paper but not many venture to do so. But the thing that stands out is all of them are seeking the right answers to their questions! In life too, people from all walks of life are constantly seeking answers to their pressing problems. A student is seeking answers to his questions, a player is seeking answers to improve his game, a sick person is seeking answers for his disease, a young wife is seeking answers to her husband’s loose and lewd life, a businessman is seeking answers to solve his failing business, a parent is seeking answers for his son’s drug addiction, a politician is seeking answers to win the election, a scientist is seeking answers for the unsolved equations of the universe and so on and so forth.
In fact, the truth is, all are seeking answers for something or the other. But most are unable to find answers so they get disappointed, depressed or commit suicide. People are primarily not prudent enough in seeking the answers to the real problem but they are interested only in the present – right now problems! They do not pay any attention to the eternal problem or the real weighty questions! Gladly the answers to all our questions are already answered by God in the person of Jesus Christ! They are all recorded for us in the Holy Bible. God revealed to man that the real problem everyone facing is sin! All other things are consequences of sin. We need answers to questions like, Who am I? What is the purpose of my life? Where did I come from? Where am I heading to? Is there life after death? Who is the true God? How can I know Him? Is God personal or impersonal? How can I conquer evil within? Is there forgiveness for my sin? Where will I spend my eternity? These are the real questions that we need to find the answers. Because these are the questions that matter the most to all of us irrespective of our religion, race, caste, creed, and colour! Jesus answered all these questions wonderfully through His incarnation, righteous life, wonderful teaching, great miracles, the perfect sacrifice by crucifixion, shedding of holy blood for our sin, death, burial, and resurrection on the 3rd day! His work of redemption alone answers all the questions of humanity! We must seek answers only from Him to all our questions pertaining to present life and eternity! So why wait, go to Him in prayer by simple faith and call on His saving name, open His Bible and look for the appropriate answers. You will experience true forgiveness, total salvation and triumphant joy! Remember Lord Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life!
