Not Condemened

“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18). I will usually ask God on Sunday morning to give me a verse or a couple of verses out of His word to memorize and meditate on all week, this week He gave me John 3:18. The most well know verse in the bible occurs just two verses prior; “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). This is the gospel (the good news) the verse that ties these two together says; “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:17). God loves each and every one of us; the cross is evidence of His love for us. Every single man, women, and child walking the face of this earth is God’s creation, He created everything. The simple fact that there is a creation is evidence enough of a creator; nothing didn’t create everything, there is intelligence in the design of this world and all that it contains. God gave us free will when He created us; all that we have comes from God. We were created with one purpose, to worship God that is the reason for our existence.

The Bible says “for all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God “Romans 3:23). What is sin? “Everyone who sins is breaking God’s law, for all sin is contrary to the law of God” (1 John 3:4 NLT). God gave us His Holy Ten Commandments His moral law; sin simply put is breaking those laws, in other words rejecting the law giver, rejecting God. The first to reject God was Adam and Eve in the garden. God told man/Adam not to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but he used the free will God gave him to do it any way and reject God. Every one of us has rejected God, every one of us! The bible says “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 3:23a). The death of your soul in Hell, Jesus described it this way “where the worm does not die And the fire is not quenched. Outer darkness, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Mark 9:46, Matthew 8:12). “And anyone not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:15). Hell is a horrible place, total separation from God, no goodness, pain, total unfulfilling forever without end.

I have heard people ask; if God is so loving why would He throw people into Hell? God does not put people in Hell, people chose to go to Hell. When you sin you reject God. Hell is separation from God, forever! God loves us so very much, Peter in his second epistle said; “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). God wants everyone to turn to Him, to turn to His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. God does not reject man, man rejects God every time you sin you reject God. God has made a Way for everyone to be reconciled to Him and that Way is Jesus Christ. If you will Repent (turn from sin to God) and put your faith in His only begotten son Jesus Christ you will be saved. Remember, "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved" (John 3:17).

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
