Today's Scripture: "Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them." Acts 8:5
6054. It may be impossible to find success without first having been a failure. JG

See it.

Go no go

Live it.

Growing up in church, I think I heard the word revival used more than any other word. But I seldom heard the word reconciliation used in a sermon and don't think I ever heard the word repent used. But then again, I probably ignored it which is the same as not hearing it. The odd thing about this is reconciliation and repentance are two staples of worship that don't require a special meeting or revival speaker to show up.

I recently found a cassette recording of me preaching. It's what I believe was my first sermon and included in a stack of sound tracks I need to convert. I haven't yet worked up the courage to listen to it, but today might be the day. Normally in church at this time, ice covered roads have resulted in most churches like mine being closed. Now with time on my hands, I may convert the audio on the cassette tape to an digital MP3 file, and listen to as much as I can bear. You know, that's what a lost person does to come to Christ. Conversion is the result of hearing the Gospel, repenting of sin and being reconciled to Christ. Do that and your name will be recorded eternally in the Lamb's Book of Life—which is, by the way, far better than digital.

Pray it.

Thank You,God, for salvation that's relational and not political.
