Heb 11. 6

“But without faith it is impossible to please him:

for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and

that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

“…get rid of the idea that faith is a matter of spiritual heroism…There are heroes of faith but faith is not for heroes.

It is a matter of spiritual manhood. It is a matter of maturity.”

People who would be very upset with even accidental paint on a museum “masterpiece,” who would want prison-time for anyone purposely painting some famous man’s art work are OK, may even encourage, putting paint on the greatest masterpieces by the one Ultimate, True, Master Artisan. I speak of paint (& other additions) to the human body. No human artist’s work can begin to compare to the body God made you. Have respect to the Prime Artist – leave your face and frame un-cluttered by earthy stuff.

The soul is now preparing for its firm and final flight;

To plunge, to fall, to slip into the endless realm of night,

Or to soar, to climb, to lift, into the glorious light.

That soul, my Friend, is yours.

To choose is a God-given “right.”

Forsake sin, choose Christ,

Who’ll make heaven a constant delight.

Flee the devil’s coming doom,

Where flame and fear both affright.

The Blood at Calvary spilt,

Has not lost it bright, mighty might.

72 hours to see!

If 72 hrs from now you knew you would go blind

what would you plan to see in the interim? A sunrise or sunset? Some loved faces? Fall colors in the Smokies? The Grand Canyon? A lonely seashore? I could agree with all the above but, above all, you should spend many hours reading the “…holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2Ti 3.15). Time might not permit some things on your list but please, Friend, delve into and mine treasures from this ancient yet perfectly current, Classic Work of literature. The Bible is available.

Worthy of death

Rom 1. 32

“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death,

not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

“You can’t be good without helping others to be good

Lies will end

Lies (in history, geography, math/science, politics, finances) are “required” to hide truth. God is truth – Christians relate to truth. The devil is a liar – sinners relate to lies. Lies (if believed) can make sinful, simple man look “stunning” and “smart” and the all powerful, the HOLY God appear small and irrelevant. Learn to recognize lies. Look for the lies. And remember, lies will end. Truth will not.

POSSESSION (song) [1]

Slain before the foundation of the earth,

What a plan!

Four thousand years in the making,

What an age!

And the price to the Creator, Was His life,

What a cost!

This great plan of salvation,

Is this world’s best Possession!

[1] 19th “Possession”  penned in Nevada/Wyandot era.

If you could gain Heaven with cash

would you pay a $1000? $1,000,000? When we’re younger $1000 is next-to-impossible. The other figure’s still impossible for many. The “Ticket” for admission was long ago “Paid” by our Wonderful Redeemer, Jesus Christ the Righteous. We mortals may believingly accept His Gracious Gift but the hands which we reach out for It must be empty – empty of all earthly contaminations. The youth who couldn’t muster $1000 CAN empty his hands of worldliness; the millionaire CAN (& must) also empty his hands. Heaven, of course, can’t be “purchased” but receiving Life Eternal in the next world, means relinquishing sins and some “legitimate” things of this life.

Gladly, Lord, I give up all You require!
