Surrendering to the Cross

June 25, 2019 Good Morning Fellow Travelers, Read: Matthew 26:36-56 “Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.” Hebrews 5:7-8 The battle that our Lord faced over the cross was won in Gethsemane.  Hallelujah!  There He sweat, as it were, drops of blood as He struggled through to a full surrender to His Father’s will.  Ponder the struggle He faced there, and the agony He bore to face the cross for…

But brace yourself for the inevitable….

Can Good Morals Save Us?

We can be the best moral man in the world, and still be lost. If our thoughts are not pure, or our motives are not pure, we are still sinners. You may never commit adultery, but if your mind is there, you are an adulterer just the same. You may never commit murder, but if you are murdering your brother daily in your mind, you are a murderer just the same.

A Time to Keep Silent

The strength of the Gospel is its valid claim to change a man or woman from a loud and boisterous sinner into a quiet, confident saint.
