MORNINGTIME 3997by Benjamin Munsell on April 26, 2022
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, Bless them that curse you, Do Good to them that hate you, and Pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the Children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:43-45. Consider this. Take a 3" X 5" card and, other than Christ, write across the very top of the card the name of the most Holy and Righteous person, living or dead, ever to walk on planet earth. Now, write the name of the worst, most despicable, hateful sinner you can across the bottom of the card. Somewhere on this card, between these two names, write your name. The "Godlier" you think you are, write closer to the top name. The “Ungodlier" you think you are, write closer to the bottom name. Now take this card with the three names and set it on the sidewalk at the base of the Empire State Building and lean it against the building. Picture in your mind that at the very top of the building is our Very Holy, Righteous and Pure Lord God Almighty. When looking at God, now where do you fit in with the other two names on the card? How can you NOT Love all the rest of mankind when the Lord reached down to Love you and Save you in your sins? Do you Care, like Christ? Or do you, "Every man for himself" love mostly you and all the rest are on their own??? "I'm saved, that's all I need, You go gett’em God, when did they say the movie starts"? To Love, or not Love, IS SERIOUS STUFF. People are dying and going to Hell. If you have Christ, SHARE HIM, there's enough of Him to go around and NEVER run out. Make today the first day to Share Christ more than you ever have before. It's not too late to start, today. For them, tomorrow may never come. In Christ, you have Heaven forever. The lost don't. Go ahead, share Christ, and Forever, Be Blessed.
