The promises of God to sinners of every kind and degree are equally sure and steadfast, and are made real and true by the earnest cries of all true penitents. It is just as true with the Divine promises made to the unsaved when they repent and seek God, that they are realized in answer to the prayers of broken-hearted sinners, as it is true that the promises to believers are realized in answer to their prayers. (Adapted from E.M. Bounds, The Necessity of Prayer)
God, as our Creator, loves us with a depth that is beyond our imagining. After all, He sent His Son to die for our sins and to redeem us so that we might live with Him for eternity. All He asks in return is our faithful obedience and praise.
These and other scholars influenced many people to become Christians who might not have considered the faith otherwise, especially college students.
