MORNINGTIME 2916
 
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, LET HIM NOT BE ASHAMED; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:16-17. If you want a life of relative and comparative ease, just do nothing. You don't have to give your life to Christ, you don't have to read the Bible, you don't have to go to church. Just sit back, as best you can, and let the world pass you by. There's nothing to it. And that's just it, THERE'S NOTHING TO IT. Life on this earth without Christ can be like Novocain. You really don't feel or even sense what's really going on around you. Satan is glad to give you just enough trinkets to keep you mesmerized with little glittery nothings as you travel the wide easy road to Hell. Your Sin Nature assures you of Spiritual Death and a very lax attitude about spiritual things brings no Life. A perfect recipe for a fairly easy life of Death. Yes, this way of "life" does have its troubles, but for someone with no interest in More, that's just life. No meaning, no conclusion, just die and it all goes black. BUT, if you're even a little curious for a little something "More", the Lord will meet you at your front door with all the GOoD News you can handle. Just ask. And when He shows you where you are, and where He Paid For You To Be, most will RUN to Christ and LIFE, and NEVER look back. The world will give you life for a brief moment. That's all you know because that's all there is. When you see the difference between life and LIFE, THEN YOU'LL SEE THE DIFFERENCE. Christ will give you LIFE FOR ALL ETERNITY, a Life you've never dreamed of, a Life starting today, Growing in Christ here on this earth, and Perfected in Heaven  for all of Eternity. This world can only offer a moment of bliss, Christ offers an Eternity of Life with Him. It's your call on how you want to, Be Blessed.
