Christ is the main attraction


By Dr. John W. Lewis - Religion Writer



John 12:32, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”

For almost 2,000 years people have been attending Christian churches. Did you ever ask yourself what could draw so many people and hold their interest so long over such a great span of time?

Consider this expounding and preaching from one book. You begin to realize it is not the buildings, the special music, the preacher, tradition, programs, or the fellowship. But that the main attraction is the Lord Jesus Christ.

What does it mean if I be LIFTED UP? It means that Christ must be preached as a Saviour hanging between heaven and earth on an old, rugged cross giving His blood as an atonement for our sins.

He will draw all men unto Himself if He is lifted up in this way. “Draw all men” means to draw men from every race and walk of life. Christ has always been the main attraction!
