FEBRUARY 4 – WHY DO WE HAVE THESE PROBLEMS


FEBRUARY 4 – WHY DO WE HAVE THESE PROBLEMS

Judges 6:13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.

There are some people that seem to be without a clue. They have difficulty in their life that they do not understand. Tragedy befalls them often. Health is a problem. In and out of Jobs and seem as if they cannot hold a job for very long. Relationships deteriorate. Finances crumble. Life is joyless.

They never seem to understand that the choices one makes in life either beautifies or uglifies life. The mind that dwells on sin often makes choices that bring terrible results. I can tell you why your life is a mess, your state is a mess and our nation is a mess. It is called sin because man makes wrong choices. When man chooses to ignore God and His Son, Jesus Christ, that man chooses the wrong path in life. It is only natural for the lost to choose sin. When the saved choose sin, we have serious problems.

The saved have been forgiven and are then to serve. When they turn away from service, it is rebellion. Rebellion is sin. When the saved agree with worldly culture in aborting a baby and agree with homosexual marriage we have serious problems. These problems are even greater when we practice close communion and baptism without proper authority. These are directly against Biblical statement and practice. We have minimized the ordinances that Jesus gave to the local Church. We have taken upon ourselves to “correct” Gods error.

We need to get back to the true walk, the true worship and the true doctrines that God has given us in His Book, the Bible.

Robert McCurry 1986

What a miserable existence we have when our lives do not reflect these values.

Dr. Robert McCurry – 1986

**{1} Once all villagers decided to pray for rain; on the day of prayer all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella.**
That’s FAITH**
** {2} When you throw a baby in the air, she laughs because she knows you will catch her.**
That’s TRUST**
** {3} Every night we go to bed, without any assurance of being alive the next morning, but still we set the alarms to wake up.**
That’s HOPE**
** {4} We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future.**
That’s CONFIDENCE**
** {5} We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children.**
That’s LOVE**
** {6} On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence ‘I am not 90 years old: I am sweet 16 with 74 years experience!’**
That’s ATTITUDE**
May you always have love to share, health to spare & friends who care.

Our Predestined Appointment


OUR PREDESTINED APPOINTMENT

At the moment we were born, a countdown began on our lives. Every tick of the clock brings us one step closer to our inescapable appointment with God. Each of us will stand before Him as we are about to enter our eternal destination.

Tragically, there will be shocking disappointment for some. Jesus Himself warned, “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name . . . ?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness” ( Matt. 7:22 -23 ).

The only way to eternal life is through faith in Jesus. Truly, our sin has separated us from the Father. But God’s Son provided the solution to this universal problem: Christ lived a perfect life and then died a sinner’s death on the cross to pay the penalty each of us owed ( Rom. 6:23 ). After three days, He rose from the grave, defeating death and evil. By accepting His sacrifice on our behalf, we no longer have to live apart from God.

To receive this amazing gift, we must simply believe in Jesus and what He did. As a result, we become new creations ( 2 Cor. 5:17 ), are adopted as God’s children ( Eph. 1:5 ), and enter into a never-ending personal relationship with our Father.

Do you have confidence about where you will spend eternity? You may assume you have time to figure out this important issue, but let me give you some wise advice: Don’t wait another minute to settle the matter, because “later” may never come. Repent of your sin today, and follow Jesus.
