Old timers hear the world news, shake their heads in disdain and step up onto imaginary soapboxes. “These are perilous times.” From Adam’s walk out of Eden, to our walk into eternity, indeed-times include peril. Do I padlock my doors, hide in my closet and isolate myself? Decidedly not! If I retreat into my closet, I do not want it to reveal a yellow streak, but instead to show a compelling call to intercede.
“And when you come before God, don’t turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? ‘Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace (Matthew 6:5-6 The Message).”
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
