12-29-2016 Another Year Of Darkness

“Then God said, ‘Let there be light;’ and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day” (Genesis 1:3-5 NKJV).  From the first day of the Creation, God wants us to know the difference between Day and Night, darkness and light.  The prophet Daniel said, God “knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him” (Daniel 2:22 NKJV).  Solomon said, “The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble” (Proverbs 4:19 NKJV).  There are some people who stumbled into 2016, through 2016, and are planning to stumble into 2017.  They haven’t figured out yet, “what makes them stumble.”  Don’t waste another year in darkness!

I am a sinner James reminds us “we…

I am a sinner! James reminds us, “we all stumble in many ways.” I have stumbled and stumbled in many ways. I am worthy of condemnation. I have no claim to warrant salvation. On my own I deserve eternal damnation. But I believe I will escape, where others will not. I believe! That is the key. God has provided an escape route. Jesus says, “I am the way.” I believe; I have staked my life on that; I preach that message. Believe! Repent! Choose God! Choose Jesus! But it is more than lip-service; it is life changing. No longer do I live by my will, but by the will of God. I admit that I struggle and often I fall short, but to serve God is my goal. I deserve condemnation, but I will receive eternal salvation. I wish others would listen and be saved. Will you? This is Just-A-Minute
