A NEW BEGINNING
Suggested Reading: Genesis 9-10
Key Verse: Genesis 9:1
So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.”
So God is a God of second chances. Instead of giving up on humanity, the Lord saved Noah and his family. The great flood happened because people, who were given dominion over the earth by God, cut Him off from exercising His sustaining power. All the people with the exception of Noah rejected God, excluding Him from their lives. It’s not that God ran out of mercy and love. It’s that when God is not invited to be an integral part of human life, there is no alternative, justice and judgement happens. Today there is much that seperates people from God, but I believe there are at least one billion precious souls who love and serve God. This is what holds back the consequences of the great divide between a Holy God and an unrepentant world. Next time, Jesus, the Ark of Salvation will lift His own to safety (read 1 Thess. 4:13-18).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA !
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord, thank You for giving me a second chance. I pray fervently for Salvation to come to at least another billion people. Grant me grace, boldness, wisdom and sacrificial giving of myself and the resources that You have put in my hands, so that the most glorious work of soul winning will accelerate as the day of Christ’s return is very soon. In Jesus’ powerful Name. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
I cannot begin to express my gratitude to God and to special people in my life for leading me to Salvation. I had prayed to be saved as a child, but when my mother died of cancer when I was 12 years old, I turned my back on God, blaming Him for mother’s death. I now know that it was the seperation of the human race from God that allows the twisting of human cells called cancer. It’s not God’s fault; it’s our fault. My Dad went back to his mission work in Egypt and I was put into a boarding school, from which I was kicked out. In a regular high school I encountered three real followers of Jesus in my grade 12 class. My boss at work coaxed me to give my life to Jesus. He tricked me by asking me to drive his Chrysler New Yorker from Pembroke to Ottawa to pick up Evangelist Jack Wyrtzen. That night at a Youth for Christ rally a friend, Homer James, came beside me and offered to walk forward with me. It happened! I’ve never turned back from Jesus. I’m in Him (the Ark) and I’m kept by His power! How about you? Unsure? Call 1-866-273-4444 and ask about your salvation.
Yours very truly,
