Eternal Life

In the beginning God created all things
You were created in the image of God;
Therefore, you are to be perfect as Your heavenly Father is perfect
But you are not perfect
You have sinned and fall short of the glory of God;
Sin is lawlessness
Sin is everyone deciding for themselves good and evil 
Sin is rebellion against God
The penalty for sin is death;
Spiritual death, the separation of the sinner from God
Physical death, the separation of the soul from the body
Eternal death, the abandonment of the soul in hell
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God;
Therefore, eternal life is a gift given by the grace of God alone
Received through faith alone
In the Son of God, Jesus the Christ alone
Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit
Jesus was born of the virgin Mary
Jesus came into Galilee preaching the Gospel and saying,
“The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand 
Repent and believe in the gospel”
Jesus died for our sins according to the Scriptures
Jesus was buried in a garden tomb
Jesus was raised from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures
Jesus has been given all authority in heaven and on earth;
Therefore, if you reject Jesus and continue in sin 
You will go away into eternal punishment
But if you repent from sin and believe in Jesus
You will go into eternal life in the new heaven and new earth in the presence of God

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.”

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

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
