The Cure

Hello all,
 It was beautiful for Mother’s Day here where we live. This was another of those little blessings for which we are thankful. If the weather guessers are right, it looks like we’ll go directly from winter to summer. Our forecast for the next few days looks for very warm temperatures at this time of the year.

As we in this part of the world seem to be focusing on whether or not we will receive necessary rainfall and the resulting growth of crops and pasture, we need also to look beyond our corner of the world. There are a number of issues in our larger culture that are going to affect us more and more as time passes. We are being told over and over that things we believe about morality and right living do not apply to “modern” thinking and that we need to embrace all the “new” ideas that the world is putting forth.

Years ago, I remember the thought being promoted was of a “new morality.” I believe I would be accurate in saying there is no “new morality”, it is still the old immorality. The very kind of thing the Bible calls SIN. Contrary to “new thinking”, nothing has changed in the years since the Garden of Eden, God will  judge those those who refuse to be obedient to his moral law.

I believe the time is near, although I would not venture to guess how near, when the Lord will return and judge the world. I also believe that the way things are headed, we may be picking up speed in that direction. There is a remedy. Here is how it works: Admit you are a sinner; Believe Jesus Christ died for your sin; Confess your sin and ask for forgiveness.

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” Romans 10:9-10.

Your life and your way of thinking will be changed forever, and you will be assured of an eternity in the presence of the Lord.

Praying for all who will believe,

Pastor Jerry
