Greetings my friends. It is Sunday April 25TH 2021, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us praise and worship Christ our Savior on this day – and every day !
You know sometimes I have “writer’s block”, and I don’t know what to write about. I have to take a break in my sermon-writing when that occurs. I know that it’s temporary, and eventually the thoughts will be pouring in to my mind so fast that my fingers won’t be able to keep-up on the computer keyboard to get it all in writing. I treasure God’s wisdom. I pray for it daily.
The good thing about being a blogger is that when the thoughts aren’t there to write I can always look back at the past for inspiration. This blog celebrates its 14TH anniversary at the end of next month, and it mirrors my fantastic journey along the way.
Here’s what I wrote here on my blog exactly 13 years ago this weekend:
God commanded that the baby born to Mary be named ‘Jesus’ which means ‘God saves His people from their sins.’ Jesus is a global Savior who is sufficient for all people, all races, and all nations. Christianity is exclusive in that there is only one God. It is inclusive in that Jesus is the Savior who invites all people everywhere to be saved by Him. If Scripture is true then we must be absolutely clear on this most important spiritual issue – that there is only one way to God.
AMEN. I wrote that in response to my Pastor’s sermon that Sunday titled “What Makes Jesus Superior To Other Saviors”. I was still in my first year of salvation. I was lit-up for Christ back then as a baby Christian.
One of my favorite quotes from the late great Billy Graham up in Heaven is – “Christ belongs to all people ! He belongs to the whole world !”
I truly believe that. He’s available to all people, all races, and all nations. He’s available right now. You don’t have to wait for Him. He’s within reach right now. You are not too far away from him. No matter what you’ve said. No matter what you’ve done. He’s right there where you are. Are you ready to believe in Him ? Are you ready to follow Him for the rest of your life ? Are you ready to be born again ?
For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal living word of God. (1 Peter 1:23 NLT)
