We need to search for God with our whole heart. There is a space of time for everyone to repent. We don't realize just how frail our life is but we all have an appointed time to die. When God says that's it we better be ready to meet God.
Beloved, the gospel message to sinners is an urgent message…
We must tell them NOW that the way to Christ is STILL OPEN!
Just like the ark, the door is still open for any sinner who
will come! You can still get to and through the strait gate
that leads to eternal life! But it is imperative to flee to
For the lost, don't let it be said of you, for so long, YOU
COULD HAVE COME, NOW YOU CANNOT COME!
"They which would pass from hence to you cannot;
neither can they pass to us, that would come from
1 Samuel 20:3: "Truly as the LORD liveth, and as thy
soul liveth, there is but a step between me and
Don't take that final step into eternity without Christ!
Psalm 39 begins with David holding back his complaint lest he be a stumbling block to the wicked (vs 1-3). This preface leaves the reader anxious to find out what is troubling him so? When he finally opens his mouth in verse 4, his complaint is not regarding any human being, wicked or righteous, but is laid against the Lord, Yahweh. We learn from this that it is wise to not voice complaints against God in the hearing of enemies; nevertheless, we should bring our troubles before God Himself.
What troubles David so, is the brevity and meaninglessness of human existence (vs 4-6). The Selah at the end of verses 5 and 11 follow the Hebrew word hebel, translated "mere breath," leading us to pause and meditate on this sobering thought. This is the key word of the book of Ecclesiastes, often translated, "vanity." As perplexing as the brevity of life is, verse 5 affirms that God has made it this way. But why then does God bother with such an insubstantial creature as man? What is His concern with me? Why can He not just leave me alone in my fleeting life? The answer is both easy to understand and utterly abstract. There is a paradox that although our life is fleeting and years are short, we are more than just passing creatures. Our brief journey on this earth has eternal value, as God made us for eternity and for Himself.
Psalm 37:1-11 " 1 ¶ [[A Psalm of David.]] Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace."
What is your life? That is the question asked of us in James 4:14. We know the quantity, it is but a vapor, but what is the quality of our life. From this chapter, we see some distinct qualities that should be present in every Christian's life.
In this sermon, Pastor Jesse Randolph continues unpacking James' simple but stinging commands regarding mankind's arrogant appendage, the tongue. James reveals that the remedy for prideful and judgmental speech is found by humbly surrendering to the sovereign God and by doing and saying what is right before Him.
We continue in this lesson examining the blessings that Jesus pronounces in this Sermon on the Plain. He reminds us of the eternal nature of the Kingdom of God and the blessings of the Kingdom that are ultimately and exclusively found in Him.
