SCRIPTURE

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

~Matthew 7:11, NLT

QUOTE

A Christian is nothing but a sinful man who has put himself to school for Christ for the honest purpose of becoming better.

~H. W. Beecher

my thoughts red

Evangelist Phil Glisson says there are two kinds of people in the world, the kind and the wrong kind. There are two kinds of people in the world, there are those who are sinners and know it and those who are sinners and don’t know it but we are all sinners. There is Jesus and then there are sinners: Jesus is, we are! Unless you are Jesus, you are a sinner. Yes you have been justified by the blood of Christ and you will be acquitted by the Righteous Judge. God lives in the eternal present, we live in time. He sees us as we will be but presently we struggle with sin. We cannot enjoy sin. We cannot take sin lightly but we do sin.

I like Matthew 7:11 and not simply because it forces the Pharisees to loosen their halo’s. I like it because it reminds of that God is infinitely better than the best that is in us. We earthy parents love to give to our children but how much more does the heavenly Father love to give to us. As much as we love our children, it does not compare to the infinite love of Christ.

  • TODAY we pray for Ministers and Missionaries. It is a travel day for Joe David and the road conditions may not be good. Pray for him as he travels to Seminary. Pray that he will be able to get in touch with Jay Gordon. We are running out of time.
  • Kerri Callahan has been very sick since Wednesday and is in HH at the moment [Sunday night, Feb. 22]. She may get to come home today {Monday}, we don’t know. She has had a severe headache. They gave her something Sunday night late to ease her. Pray for Kerri. Kelvin and Tracey are with her.
  • Our LCBS class party went great and like a dummy, I forget to even get a pic. I think we had 18 and they were still having a good time when I left. I hope all the parties went well. We need good fellowship. I would love to hear about your party. Email me at jack@danvillebaptist.org.
  • I think they are giving another winter weather advisory for this morning. I am ready for Spring.

    It confuses me when you say “today” (Monday) when today is really still SUNDAY.
