|Always rest your fork on your plate!|
Now, perhaps I am a bit overboard on the germ thing but, considering that I am down with the flu as I type this, I don't think so. Germs are everywhere and people are disgusting (don't even get me started on people who leave the restroom without washing their hands). All of that aside, however, let's create a lame sermon illustration out of this, shall we?
All it takes is one to infect you: one E. coli-tainted bowl of food to upset your tummy, one flu-driven sneeze or cough to render you feverish, achy, and miserable for 2 weeks, just one. Likewise, all it takes is one sin for us to be guilty of them all. Not only are we born with a sin nature, we also cannot keep the Law no matter how hard we try. And all it takes is committing one sin to make us guilty of them all.
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all. (James 2:10)And this is why we need a Savior. Not only can we know that, one day, there will be no more sickness, we know that one day, there will be no more sin for those who have been saved by the Lord Jesus Christ. And we long for that day when we can see Him face to face, don't we? Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
With that, there is not much more to say. Stay healthy and take some time to enjoy your week in review (kind of):
- Dear Jennifer Garner, you won't find true Christianity at T.D. Jakes' church.
- "Wild and woolly Jesus-awesomeness"? I don't know what that is, but it sounds mildly blasphemous, Beth Moore.
- I do not understand this article posted by Matt Chandler's church.
- Such an important question. Thank you for this, Pastor Mike.
- You simply must listen to this recent sermon by Phil Johnson: "A Plea to Judas."
- Jesus Christ is the Bread of Life:
