MORNINGTIME 2709
 
NOW THE GOD OF HOPE FILL YOU WITH all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST. AND i myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with ALL KNOWLEDGE, able also to admonish one another. Romans 15:13-14. This is but a tiny taste of The GOoD Word. The Bible is chock full of Words from the Lord wanting to lavishly cover anyone who will listen and Believe what He has to say. He's all about taking you from death and destruction, into an exceedingly Victorious Life right here and now starting right where you live with the things you know all about. Your life now is your reference point, it's something you understand, for you to compare your old life in the world to the New Life the Lord will move you into. This is a nice way of saying, you already know and understand your old life without Christ to compare your New Growing Life in, with, and through, Christ. The "joy" of a Christ-less life is eating chunks from the bottom of the septic tank. The "Joy" of a Christ-filled Life is KNOWING you're eating chunks from the bottom of the septic tank AND THROWING UP TO NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN. The first is, "This doesn't taste very good". The second is "That's a life of cr*p, I'm never going back there again". Before Christ, you  used to feast on chunks. After Christ, you only feast at His Table on only GOoD Stuff. THE BIBLE IS FULL OF THE GOOD STUFF, IT'S LIFE, AND LIFE EVERLASTING. But you must read and study it so you can KNOW what all the Good Stuff is. I'll illustrate. If you win the lottery, YOU GET NOTHING, until you follow the exact rules and turn in your ticket at the right place and give it to the right person. When you "win" Christ, only by Following Him and His Way, will you Receive Eternal Life. This life here and now is full of rules. Only when Christ "Rules" your life will you get Him as your Reward. If you don't Follow Christ, YOU'VE NEVER MET CHRIST! Meet Christ, Be Blessed.
