MORNINGTIME 3744by Benjamin Munsell on May 5, 2021
And before (Christ) shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And He shall set the sheep on His Right Hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into Life Eternal. Matthew 25:32-34,41,46. Let's be clear here, to be Saved IS NOT just a "decision", a "choice" or a "desire", it IS the purposeful ACT of Following the Lord Jesus Christ wherever He leads you. Yes, to Follow Christ STARTS with a choice or decision, AND QUICKLY GOES TO THE ACT OF FOLLOWING CHRIST. The bottom line here is, IT'S ALL ABOUT "HEART ATTITUDE". Through trials, troubles, testing's, tribulations AND Blessings, the Lord will show you just a touch of His Glory, and the wretchedness of your Sins, AND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO CAN DRIVE YOU STRAIGHT INTO THE ARMS OF CHRIST. Well, at least it should. Most will ignore this Call of Christ and still want to stay in their Sins. That's very sad as His Offer of Eternal Salvation is Offered to all, and taken up by very few. Salvation is not just something to talk about, and there are many in church who love to TALK ABOUT their "love" for Christ, but their lives, their daily activities have nothing to do with Christ in any way. They're all talk with the "best of intentions", they just never get around to actually DOING anything with those intentions. To Follow Christ is always Action, under the control of Obedience, coming out of a Heart FOR Christ and everything HE Desires. All lost sheep will eventually come to Christ unto Salvation, and not even one will be lost. They ALL will Grow in Faith and Obedience, and, Be Blessed.
