Proverbs 29:1 King James Version (KJV)
He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
I well remember a mother telling me that the tragic words of her teenage son, “Mum, if you talk to me any more about Jesus or being saved, I’ll leave home and you’ll never see me again.” She replied, “I won’t mention it again, but I won’t stop praying for you son.” Sadly, a few weeks later he was killed in a tragic car accident and went into eternity, and as far as I know without Christ. How important to “Prepare to meet thy God” (Amos 4:12). “Behold, now is the day of salvation” (II Corinthians 6:2). Come to the Lord Jesus, today! -Jim Comte
Almost persuaded now to believe; almost persuaded Christ to receive; Seems now some soul to say, “Go Spirit, go Thy way; Some more convenient day on Thee I’ll call. -Philip P. Bliss
“Those who plan on eleventh hour conversions, often die at ten thirty.”
In my own experiences, I recall a wonderful deacon in our church who had a burden for a lost soul in the community over thirty years ago. He and I went to his home more than once and pleaded for him to come to church and give his heart to Christ. The soul knew it was the right thing to do, but never acted upon the invitation. One day the deacon made a final plea, and the soul promised that he would come to church on the following Sunday. The man went fishing and boating on the Rappahannock River near Fredericksburg, Virginia and drowned on Saturday, the day before he was to come to church. To this day, I believe the man was insincere with another of his many promises, and had he lived, would probably not have come to church. Don’t gamble with your soul, and act on His invitation today. You and I are not promised any tomorrows. Yours In Christ, Pastor Steve
“Salvation, Don’t Leave Earth Without it.”
Exodus 12:2 King James Version (KJV)
2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
What a “Happy New Year” this was to be. Freedom from slavery, poverty and hopelessness. To come under a new head – Moses. To have a new hope – the promised land of Canaan. All this because of the blood of the Passover lamb, which sheltered the people from judgment. Dear reader, would you like a Happy New Year? Would you like to receive redemption through the blood of Christ, to be made a new creature in Christ Jesus, to have the sure prospect of heaven’s bliss at the close of this life? Trust Him now. -W. H. Burnett
I will sing of my Redeemer, and His wondrous love to me, On the cruel cross He suffered, from the curse to set me free. -Philip P. Bliss
