2 Timothy 3:1-5
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
As we face an uncertain future with faith and courage, it is vitally important that we know who we are as persons. Knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the key to the abundant life that can only be experienced in a personal relationship with Him.
William Shakespeare in Hamlet wrote these words that are true in every age:
"This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not be false to any man."
Jesus Christ desires to dwell within us. He will guide us and direct us through His Holy Spirit and His Word, the Bible.
Do you remember a chorus we use to sing in the church:
Have you any rivers
You think are uncrossable?
And have you any mountain
That you cannot tunnel through?
In things thought impossible
And He will do for you what
No other power can do.
Now is the time to trust Jesus with your life and future. Invite Him into your life today.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
6 Seek the LORD while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the LORD,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
