FIND US FAITHFUL


FIND US FAITHFUL

We’re pilgrims on the journey of the narrow road.

And those who’ve gone before us line the way –

Their lives a stirring testament to God’s sustaining grace.

Let us run the race not only for the price,

But as those who’ve gone before us, let us

Leave to those behind us, the heritage of

Faithfulness passed on thru godly lives.

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone,

And our children sift thru all we’ve left behind,

May the clues that they uncover, and the mem’ries

They uncover, become the light that leads them,

To the road we each must find.

O, may all who come behind us find us faithful,

May the fire of our devotion light their way.

May the footprints that we leave lead them to

Believe, and the lives we live inspire them to obey,

O, may all who come behind us find us faithful.

He Is Coming!


 

Revelation 1:7

 

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen,” Revelation 1:7.

 

 

One, hot, August day Joe sat on the porch looking down the dusty road—waiting. His dad had gone on a business trip but was due home any moment. Joe did not act very nicely while his dad was away. He disrespected his mother, terrified his sister and his mom had warned him many times to behave politely—he did not listen to the warnings and now he knew the consequences that faced him. Suddenly, he saw a cloud of dust rising from the road—daddy is coming home.

 

Many people are like Joe. The gospel has been preached, and they have turned a deaf ear. The Bible is made available in every form possible and yet, they do not read it. A witness of His salvation has told them personally but they mock and laugh. They must face the consequences of their choice. The clouds are gathering—Jesus is coming.

 

My friend, do not be like Joe. This is your warning—Jesus is coming again. Do not turn away from the message of salvation. Do not spend your Sundays, leisurely, as you please. Come to Jesus as He pleads. Do not laugh or mock when family, friends, or even strangers tell you about the only begotten Son. Believe. He is coming again, and that day will not be a happy day if you do not heed the warning.

 

 

Reflection

 

Jesus is coming in the clouds on that day. It will be a sad, sad day for many people when their loved ones are gone and they alone remain.
