Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. – 1 John 5:12
On any given day, I’ll read a particular verse that reminds me of the state I used to be in. This verse is no exception. I remember when I thought I had it all in my hand. I had money, a nice car and a nice home. I felt like I didn’t need anyone except the people I had in my circle. I drank liquor, partied, smoked dope, womanized and whatever else I thought I was bad enough to do. Until one day I was spiritually stripped so I could see I was really a dead man, waiting to be buried and later judged to eternal punishment.
Today I am no longer a dead man, but I am dead to the sin I used to love. Now I have the Son, the Son of God, Jesus, who I love now. Today I live!!!
I’m so glad Jesus did what He did for you and me. Yes I want to be where He is!
In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea 2 and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” – Matthew 3:1-2
From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” – Matthew 4:17
I had a dream a couple of nights ago. I won’t go into the dream but a voice of a man was weeping with much strength and he said “Tell the people time is running out. Tell them to repent and receive Salvation, quickly.” This dream has been with me ever since. What I remember most is how the man in the dream wept so strongly.
Not only did the dream rekindle the urgency in me to start witnessing more for Jesus, it also started me thinking about some of the messages that are coming from today’s pulpit. I’ve heard messages of sowing a financial seed, our destinies and our breakthroughs. I’ve heard messages that were condemning rather than loving. I’ve heard all kinds of messages, but seldom do I hear sermons that urge us to repent from our sins, urging us to live our lives unto Salvation. Read more
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him – 1 John 4:9
I was sitting here, sort of in a disheveled state. Thinking about how the day has been out of sync. Then I ran across this verse in Bible Gateway’s verse of the day section. Then I started thinking about how blessed we are to have a God so great, who’s love for us is great, to give His Son Jesus who is so great as a sacrifice for us who are not so great.
Now I feel better and everything is back in sync.
Thank You Jehovah!
OUR BREAK TIME IS OVER
Every real Christian’s job description can be found in Luke 3:4:
A voice crying in the wilderness, Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him!
We got work to do, our break is over!
Matthew 20:16 – “So the last will be first and the first will be last.”
Isn’t it wonderful to know that no matter how early or late one accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior you’re treated equal? Isn’t it a blessing to know that no matter how rich or poor you are, money doesn’t play a role in whether you’re saved or not? Isn’t is just awesome that no matter who you are, what you’ve done or how long you’ve done it, Jesus is still saving souls in spite of?
Well all I have to say is I came in at a late time in my life (or what some church people think) at the age of 48. But Jesus still accepted me when I came to Him when I didn’t have anywhere else to go but hell. He is a Savior of all people whether they ask for Salvation as a child or as a senior citizen. He treats us all equal. Jesus has the same reward for all of us. Won’t you go to Him and ask Him?
