To Rana

Thank you so much for your kind and gracious words, I appreciate them.

As a deeply committed follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am commanded by Him to,

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."

Matthew 7:6-8

and when the Lord Jesus Christ was asked which was the greatest commandment, here is how He replied,

" Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind."

Matthew 22:37

One of Jesus' earliest followers was Dr Luke, yes he was a medical doctor, and he wrote a biography of Jesus which is in our present New Testament, and known as Luke's Gospel, ("the good news of Jesus according to Luke"), and here is how this careful doctor (who used his mind) introduced his biography,

"Many people have set out to write accounts about the events that have been fulfilled among us. They used the eyewitness reports circulating among us from the early disciples. Having carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I also have decided to write a careful account for you, most honourable Theophilus, so you can be certain of the truth of everything you were taught."

Luke 1:1-4

A film based on Luke's biography of the Lord Jesus Christ has been made, it is available online, I hope you will want to watch it, and it can be found at,

In all my conversations with those who don't yet know Jesus as Saviour, Friend and Lord, I seek to be faithful to the words of the Bible which tell me to,

"In your heart set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."

1 Peter 3:15

and by the Grace of God, I will.

With kind regards and best wishes

Lactantius Jr.
