The Interpreter Of Life
Life is a dream, a riddle, a mystery, a difficult problem. But there is one interpreter.
What is his name? Where can he be found? His name is Jesus Christ, and he can be found wherever there is a heart that wants him. You have a dream—you cannot call it by any other name— about sin.
You know there is something wrong somewhere. You cannot explain it; you cannot set it down in order, proposition after proposition. It is as unsubstantial as a dream, and impalpable as a vision. Yet it haunts you and you want to know more about it.
Christ is the Interpreter, and He alone can explain what sin is; show it in its reality, and give the soul to feel how terrible a thing it is.
You have dreams about truth. Sometimes you see an image that you think is the very image of truth herself. Sometimes that angel comes quite near you, and you are almost on the point of laying your hand on the glittering vision.
You cannot quite do so. It leaves you, escapes you, mocks you! Jesus Christ is the Interpreter of that dream. Why? Because he is the truth.—PARKER.
