Luther quote

“…No man hath so grievously fallen at any time, but he may rise again. And on the other side, no man taketh so fast footing, but he may fall.”

Commentary on Galatians p. 94

 

If you make heaven and I don’t, I seriously doubt that you’ll miss me. If on the converse, I make heaven and you don’t, it seems (as much as I may’ve liked your personality, your bright mind, your talents) that I’ll not miss you. This is sad to think of now. But how can heaven have no tears if I realize that you’re not there? Heaven’s happy occupants may (hear my word “may”) have a “holy amnesia.”

LORD OF THANKSGIVING

Tis a blessing to me and my kin,

To have food, tall pantry and bin,

Our store is thick, not lean nor thin,

For all this I praise you Lord,

Living, Giving, Loving Lord.

 

It’s good to have clothes and more,

In dresser and behind closet door,

And shoes and boots on scattered floor,

For abundance I thank you Lord,

Great, Gallant and Faithful Lord.

 

Of far more blessings (by miles, not feet),

Is the mate you allowed me to meet,

And four little Bryans to make us complete,

Thou who lovest family, Creative Lord,

My thanks for being a Love-making Lord.

 

Most of all I’m so grateful to be,

Redeemed and passed through my own Red Sea,

Through “Jordan” you also have guided me,

Redeeming and Sanctifying Lord, my Lord,

You surely deserve all the praise I afford.

There are several ways to catalog earth’s peoples: ethnic group, language, race, etc. The Bible uses a Jew/Gentile dividing line. One is Jewish by blood. Another is Gentile by blood. However when either becomes a follower of Christ he is Born Again and stops being Gentile or Jew. This is also by Blood, the precious Blood of Jesus.

“Prayer is not a collection of balanced phrases; it is the pouring out of the soul.”

– Samuel Chadwick

 

Lowlife sins in making humans act like animals (some cultic religions even have humans making animal sounds “in church.”) Society sins in making animals into “humans.” (Idea of mickey mouse etc. is not as innocent as it seems.) God made animals on one plane and humans on a Much Higher Plane. Evolution is really EVILution! Please, Please do not lower yourself nor elevate a pet – it is still an animal.

1Pe 4. 7

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.”

 

A house of worship can supply: fellowship, an opportunity to sing classic hymns of praise, a time of corporate prayer, a brief “concert” (special song), and the occasional testimony. But if it’s sermon does not give you the Truth, the plain unadulterated Truth that place of worship has failed!
