The best of life

By Charles Box— The theme of the Bible is salvation through Jesus.

Man was created for fellowship with God. Before sin came, Adam and Eve enjoyed God’s companionship. But, after they sinned they hid themselves.

“And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.” (Genesis 3:8)

The best of life comes when men walk with God. God does not force His fellowship upon mankind. He has always given man the choice of life or death.

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19)

The Lord has shown His love for us by giving Himself for our sins. Jesus died on the cross to make atonement possible. We need Jesus! God bless you today and always. I love you.

We are responsible for our spiritual journey

Lukewarmness is the result of people failing to fulfill their responsibility. We all know the consequence of being lukewarm. (Revelation 3:14-22) Let us all become children of God (Galatians 3:26-27) and be ready for every good work. (Titus 3:1)

God bless you today and always. I love you. Charles Box

Speak to others of the glory of God’s kingdom

Christians must talk about God’s mighty power and make known to others His powerful acts.

“The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.” (Psalm 145:9-12)

As children of God we should delight to tell others about Christ and the salvation that is in Him. Let us speak to others about the glory of God’s kingdom and talk to them about His mighty power.

God Bless you today and always. I love you. Charles Box

Fear God always

“Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!” (Psalm 31:19)

God’s goodness is infinite and it is laid up for those that fear the Lord. When we come to fear God, we know He is our Creator. He is our Master or Lord. As we tremble before God, reverence and respect Him, we will do what He tells us to do in His Bible.

God Bless you today and always. I love you. Charles Box

Learning to please God: Eternal rewards (#13)

The death of a saint is precious in the Lord’s sight. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” (Psalms 116:15) The death of an unsaved person is a sorrow and grief to God. “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8) Continue reading
