After 50 years in show business, 70 albums, and 45 million records, Glen Campbell recently passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Later in his life he became a Christian. He enjoyed singing gospel songs and hymns as a means of sharing with others what Jesus Christ meant to him. His wife told the press that even though he could no longer communicate at all, he would still go to the window, raise his hands, and say, “Thank you Lord.”
Glen Campbell, with all of his fame and fortune, realized his need for a Savior found in Jesus Christ. You see, folks, eternal salvation in heaven is by grace alone. God’s grace is the great equalizer. No matter how bad a person might be, or even how good a person is, he or she must call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved. It does not depend upon one’s character qualities, what has been accomplished, or performing good deeds. It is by grace alone.
If you have not already done so, might you come to the realization that Glen Campbell did. Consider accepting Jesus Christ into your life. “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved”(Acts 4:12).
