Suicide

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Romans 6:6‭-‬7 KJV

Why would anyone want to commit suicide? Suicide is futile and final. It offers no hope for the future.

Being crucified with Christ, on the other hand, brings death to the old person and vibrant eternal life through resurrection in Christ.

Yes, receiving Jesus Christ puts the old you to death and wipes away all the guilt, shame, hopelessness and despair. It also includes you in His being raised from the dead so that you can experience forgiveness, hope and an expectation of good things to come.

Don’t take your life.

Give your life to Jesus and watch what He will do with it.

Christian Civilization

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord ; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalms 33:12 KJV

Christians must stand up against the secularists who are attempting to rewrite our nation’s history and wipe out Judeo-Christian civilization.

We are in as great a danger as was Winston Churchill’s Great Britain when Hitler was attempting to wipe out every vestage of what Churchill called Christian Civilization.

We are in a war with the spirit of anti-Christ whether we choose to acknowledge it or not and it is firmly entrenched in our educational system.

Our very existence depends upon two things: 1) Our recognition of and dependence upon God as the Lord of our nation and 2) That we bless Israel in every way that we can.

Biblical Judeo-Christian principles are the only thing that makes a society viable, cohesive, civil, lasting, and prosperous.


Teachable

Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Proverbs 1:23 KJV

Always be open to oversight, guidance and correction (reproof). It’s a wise man that continues to seek wisdom outside of himself. This especially true when we realize that God is eager to give us wisdom if we but ask.

For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6 KJV

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5 KJV

Godly spiritual fathers are also to be sought out as God will use them to help you in the affairs of life.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Ephesians 4:11‭-‬12 KJV


Love Cares

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9 KJV

Love gives at its own expense for the benefit of others. If God loved us enough to send His Son then shouldn’t we, who have had His love shed abroad in our hearts, love others enough to go to them?

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 1 John 4:9‭-‬11 KJV


Heaven or Hell

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:16 KJV

The eternal torment of hell (yes, it’s a real place) awaits those unwilling to believe. Eternal righteousness, peace, and joy awaits those who believe and yield their lives to Jesus the Christ of God.

But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:8‭-‬10 KJV


Seeking the Lost

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Luke 19:10 KJV

We are not saved so that we can have a better life while living like we did. We are a new creation with a new purpose. It is now our call and duty to serve Jesus and carry out the great commission. We are to win the lost no matter the cost.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:19 KJV

We are no longer our own we were bought with a price. We are the servants of the Lord.

And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23 KJV
