MORNINGTIME 2217
 
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16. Why aren't the "christians" in church all kinds of excited about the Power of The Gospel and what it did for them? I would have to guess that it probably hasn't done anything for them. I'll try to illustrate, (maybe poorly), why I say this about the Gospel. You hear a sound you've never heard before, then a rattle you can't understand, and a screech that hurts your ears. Soon a door opens you didn't know was there, (you're in the dungeon in prison), and a guy walks in and says, "Your crimes against God have been paid for, last night another man died in your place and you are now Free to leave this prison. You have a Full Pardon signed by the Judge, it was His Son who died in your place and he would like you to live in His House with Him as a Free man". If you understand what this all means, you'll run out of the doors of death and destruction to enjoy your new found Freedom shining with the Light of Day. If you don't understand what's just happened, you'll sit on the floor of your cell and say, that's nice. Because you don't comprehend the Magnitude of your Crimes against God, you don't comprehend the magnitude of your Freedom in Christ. Therefore, you sit in church all your life with no changes, BECAUSE NOTHING'S CHANGED. You're just as Lost as before you "got saved". The only difference is, the preacher says you're saved, and you still don't know what that means. Christ isn't "some thing," He's your EVERYTHING, or He's your "no thing". Of all the goats in church who think they're "saved" not one of them has Met The Lord. The goats will never come to Christ, but they do enjoy being "religious".  Only the "lost sheep" will be found by Christ, and when they meet Him, THEY WILL FIND FREEDOM, AND THEY WILL FOREVER BE CHANGED. Be Changed, and, Be Blessed.
