    Have you ever wished you could travel in time? If so, where would you go? Would you want to visit the greatest events that have ever happened on Earth?

    Then read on.....

    If I could take you back in time to THE most important event in world history, then I would take you back to AD 29, to a small hill outside the ancient city of Jerusalem. There on a Roman cross Jesus was bearing the sins of the world. As you stepped out of the TARDIS you would have seen crowds of people standing near the cross insulting Jesus. You would have witnessed the sky turning black at midday, even though it was Passover - the time of full moon - making an eclipse impossible. If you came with me closer to the cross you might have heard Jesus' dying words 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing' , and the Roman centurion bearing his head to exclaim 'Truly this man was the Son of God!'

    Even though we have not got a time machine, we can visit the place where Jesus died today. And we do not even need to travel to Jerusalem. For what Jesus did by bearing our sins on the cross brings God's presence to us wherever we are. We are sinners needing forgiveness if we are to avoid falling under God's awful judgment - and forgiveness is exactly what Jesus has provided for us by his death.

    You see, even though we cannot travel in time, what Jesus did has effect for ALL TIME. As God, Jesus was able to look into the future to see every man and woman who has ever lived, and then to die for them all. His death provides the forgiveness we need so that we can live with God forever. Three days after he died, Jesus rose again, so that all who believe in him might receive this gift of eternal life.

    Right here and now, without a TARDIS, you can come to the Lord Jesus, who is present everywhere. You can tell him that you have sinned and that you repent. Ask him to forgive and receive you on the basis of what he has already done for your soul. Ask him to come into your heart and life, to be your saviour.
