Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

The Reward of His Suffering

Why do we witness to others? Why do we share the good news of Jesus Christ? Do we go forth bearing precious seed with the end being souls saved? Do we desire an end of a better, happier life for those who are living in darkness? What then is the focus of this? The focus of such an end is man! It is a motivation of humanism! Why must we witness? That the Lamb of God may receive the reward of His suffering! Have ye not read, he leadeth me in paths of righteousness for His names sake? Yes the path of righteousness leads to eternal happiness for man, but that is not the end of the road. Christ deserves the worship and service of those for whom he died and for His sake we call men to come to Him and be reconciled to God. Evangelism exists because there are places where the worship of God does not. Oh that we would remove our humanistic mindset and be set on fire for the Lamb who was slain and who is worthy to receive blessing and honor, and power for ever and ever. Christ has loved those who deserve hell and we must operate for the sake of Him who died and not solely for the sake of the dying.

Preach the cross friends! The Lamb is risen and is calling His sheep from the four corners of the earth. Today is the day of salvation; now is the acceptable year of our Lord. May the power of Christ be with you all. Amen
