Beloved, it was in 1971 that Coca Cola released a "Hilltop" ad featuring a song with the words "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke." This was part of the "It's the Real Thing" ad campaign. Some of us remember that ad and slogan.
In like manner I would like you to know that Jesus Christ is actually the real thing. Jesus is not fake nor is He pretending. He is the real thing. And He wants to be the real thing in your life!
Beloved, with so many substitutes, it is important that we follow after the real thing and not after substitutes!
