Thou therefore, my son, BE STRONG IN the GRACE that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me, (Paul), among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to TEACH OTHERS also. Thou therefore ENDURE HARDNESS, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also STRIVE FOR MASTERIES, yet is he not crowned, except he strive LAWFULLY. 2 Timothy 2:1-5. Again, I, the writer of MORNINGTIME, can not and would not, even try to claim to know what it's like to be behind the bars of jails, prisons, and penitentiaries. Of that, I know nothing. But I can claim equal understanding with you of the Inside Church, in having been in full, total, and complete bondage to sin and rebellion against the Lord God Almighty, to His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and to His Holy Spirit. I too was on "Death Row" with A Lawful sentence of Eternal Damnation in the Lake Of Fire And Brimstone, until my Debt was paid in full. And that Debt could never have been paid by me. BUT CHRIST, stepped in and Offered to die IN MY PLACE, that I could go away a Free man, through Repentance and His Forgiveness. To see Christ with even a tiny amount of His Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity, and then to see my wretchedness and filth, was to Know that I had no way out of my Sin by my own doings and efforts, BUT THAT HE PAID IT ALL FOR ME, if I would simply accept His Free Offer of Salvation AND Eternity with Him in the Heavenly’s, that was an offer I fully embraced. Christ IS The Way, The Truth, and The Life, and ONLY through Him can one see The Father. Jail is the result of worldly bad choices. Hell is the result of spiritually bad choices To Follow Christ is the ONLY Way to be Free from Sin. Yes, jail hurts, BUT CHRIST HEALS, and to Grow in Christ, into CHRISTLIKENESS, is the BEST Freedom of all, to, Be Blessed.
