A Faithful Saying

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief” (I Tim. 1:15).

Of all Paul’s “faithful sayings,” this is perhaps the most wonderful, and the one through which most people have found the joy of sins forgiven.

The subject is that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” Why else would Christ have had to leave His glory in heaven if it were not, as the Bible says, to come to earth in human form to represent us in the payment for sin? And, thank God, He paid the full price for the sins of all men, for it was not a mere man who died on Calvary’s cross. So complete was His payment that Paul could exclaim: “He came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.” Paul, himself, though once Christ’s chief enemy on earth, had now been saved by Him and, had come to know the joy of sins forgiven.

The great tragedy is that so many people do not feel their condition to be hopeless apart from Christ. They have not yet seen how far they come short of the glory and holiness of God. They know they are sinners, but they do not yet feel that their condition is so hopeless that they need a Savior. Thus they keep trying, trying, trying — and failing, failing, failing!

How much wiser we are to confess our sins before God — to take the place of sinners, so that He can save us. This is the first step to heaven. When we have done this we are in a position to accept God’s offer of full pardon and justification through Christ, who died to pay the penalty for our sins.

Since none are perfect and all have sinned, “this is,” indeed, “a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” Why not believe God’s Word, accept Christ as your Savior and be saved today?

To the Reader:
Some of our Two Minutes articles were written many years ago. Rather than rewrite or date such articles, we have left them just as they were when first published. This, we felt, would add to the interest, especially since our readers understand that many of them first appeared as newspaper articles. We hope that you’ll agree that while some of the references in these articles are dated, the spiritual truths taught therein are timeless.

Spider’s Web

Stand back because this is a rant.

Do you ever feel like America is trapped in a spider’s web of lies, deceit, and innuendo? The drive-by media lies to us. The politicians lie to us. Bankers lie to us. Government lies and endangers everyone. It’s really disheartening. There are even ‘little white lies’ supposedly to not offend someone. Most lies we can shrug off, no harm done, and move on but not recognizing that Islam is inherently evil, it’s devil worship, is going to get us all killed if we don’t face that truth.

Muslim (i.e. Islam) is not a religion. It is a political system bent on the destruction of all that is good, beautiful and living. This weekend yet another goat bugger Muslim terrorist, allowed to live in our country unmolested, attacked American citizens on our own soil, and this may only be the tip of the iceberg. It is said he or others are planning even more wickedness against peaceful, law-abiding citizens in a country that has harbored him and kept him safe. It was a cowardly, unprovoked, unnecessary show of aggression to people who only wish him and others well. I am really disgusted beyond words with our government. It is time to round up all that claim to be Muslim, and ship them OUT of my Country. They have declared war on God and all that is good. Then, if they persist, declare open war on their countries and turn them into cities of glass. This has got to stop! I know it won’t stop, it’ll only grow worse with the man who calls himself Obama in charge because he has already stated that he “will always side with his Muslim brothers”. For once in his miserable, not short enough life, he wasn’t lying to the American people. He really is a type of anti-christ.

And if anyone votes for Hillary Clinton, it will be more of the same only worse because these evil people will only be emboldened even more, including the more empowered Clinton Mafia. I know that Donald Trump is no Saint, but neither was Winston Churchill and right now, he may be just the man for the job.

This Friday our Church is holding a three hour meeting of only women titled Cry Out! by Revive Our Hearts ministry. It is hosted by the Women’s Enrichment Ministry. All women are called to kneel in prayer from 7 pm – 10 pm. It’s a Nationwide event. If your church doesn’t offer this ministry or you can not otherwise attend, please consider taking the time to get in your personal closet of prayer sometime during these hours and pray with us. God hears the prayers of the saints (those of us who believe in Jesus Christ). And He always answers prayer. He is always faithful.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. [II Chronicles 7:14]

A Little Delta Breeze On Our Knees

Saturday, our F.A.I.T.H. Riders group gathered together at the Church in preparation for an hour’s long ride to Brunswick. We had plans to enjoy a brunch at the Cracker Barrel located on I-95. It was KSU (Kick Stands Up) at 8 am. Now that I’m retired, I forgot that there was an 8 am! *lol* Whew, who knew …  :)

Now that it’s September, the weather is getting pleasant. The ride over was uneventful.

Hubby snapped the above of all the motorcycles from a moving motorcycle! Isn’t that amazing? These are just three of many. That’s me in the first one on the left, with friends Albert and his wife Brenda following. Brenda has a new ‘blinged out’ Harley-Davidson motorcycle. It’s all sparkly white and painted flowers. I told her it’s pretty enough to be a charm bracelet. Dear Brenda is a newby to the motorcycle scene. I think she’s doing very well considering how little experience she has at the moment. She can run with the Big Dogs any day. Well done! There is also a chase vehicle SUV not shown of those that can’t or won’t ride. Hey, no problem, everyone that wants to join us is welcome.

Finally, we arrived and we were all ‘starving’ by then. (I say that tongue in cheek because I know I’m fat enough to hibernate nowadays.) Hubby snapped one of me on the left in the parking lot, then at the tables of some of the FAITH Riders awaiting the scrumptious repast in the restaurant. Hubby is in the middle one on the right wearing a High Vis Yellow shirt. More friends Carolyn and husband Larry in the last one. All these folks have become very dear to us both. Such fine people worth emulating that try to always show the proper Christian spirit. I am truly blessed to call them friends.

Hubby and most of the group took off for more riding around the coast, some of the ladies in the SUV went antique shopping, and I headed back home solo to do some much needed housework. Plus I was overly tired from getting up so early. I just can’t endurance ride like I used too. Too much livin’ high on the hog made me soft, I guess. *giggle*

By the way, I see that this week is the official start of Fall. Yay! It’s still a bit too warm here and the love bugs are extremely annoying. They can all just leave now, thank you.

Hope you enjoyed the journey too. Thanks for stopping by!
