The Sinner’s Destitution 10-08-19

Good day everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good. The message today is directed at all of us reading it. If for some reason you think it doesn’t apply to you, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord, help us to remember that many have chosen to come to this nation to share what we have to offer. We have welcomed them. They too have the freedom to worship in their own way, but that does not mean that we have to give up our Judeo-Christian heritage and teachings to accommodate them! For if we try to amalgamate every religion into ONE, we will likely end up with NONE! … Help us Lord, to consider this seriously before we abandon our own faith in deference to other religions. Remind us that our Constitution gives every citizen the right to worship in his own way as long as it does not endanger others. Help us as Christians to defend our precious freedom, lest we lose it altogether. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Sinner’s Destitution

The Unconverted are described as being Without God, Without Christ and Without Hope

Eph. 2:11-12

Don’t forget that you Gentiles used to be outsiders. You were called “uncircumcised heathens” by the Jews, who were proud of their circumcision, even though it affected only their bodies and not their hearts. In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from citizenship among the people of Israel, and you did not know the covenant promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope.

Without Strength

Rom. 5:6

When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good.

Without Excuse

Rom. 1:20

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

These are all true, always, of every unregenerate man and woman. What is your status? Are you straddling the fence in your walk with God or have you made the full commitment? I’m just trying to get your spiritual thoughts in the right place this morning.

Quote of the Day

The habit of judging is so nearly incurable, and its cure is such an almost interminable process, that we must concentrate ourselves for a long while on keeping it in check, and this check is to be found in kind interpretations. We must come to esteem very lightly our sharp eye for evil, on which perhaps we once prided ourselves as cleverness. We must look at our talent for analysis of character as a dreadful possibility of huge uncharitable ness. We are sure to continue to say clever things, so long as we continue to indulge in this analysis; and clever things are equally sure to be sharp and acid. We must grow to something higher, and something truer, than quickness in detecting evil.
