Romans 14:11- For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Ignore no more, the Word of God for it is the measuring stick of which we ALL will be judged. No, not by man, self or no any other means of judgment, accept by God alone.
Therefore, it is "IMPERATIVE" that you no longer ignore the Gospel as if it has no meaning or of no affect because it does. Your life now and in the future depends upon your knowledge, understanding and most of all, your acceptance and obedience of the Gospel.
I urge, beg, exhort and plea with you on today to say "YES" to God and HIs will for your life.
If you have been ignoring the "Gospel" and acting like it has no place in your life, you are being warned to "Ignore it no more" for it is your lifeline to God.
No one can say that they love God and rejects His Word. Scripture declares that God and His Word is one. John 1:1-In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Say what you want and do what pleases you, but you will give an account for your own life.
The Word of God declares that a man is known by the fruit he or she bears. There is only one "fruit inspector" and He is the Lord Jesus Christ. He will be the one we ALL will give an account to.
Everyone of us is personally accountable to God our Creator. We all will answer to Him as the final authority over our every affairs of life, be it good or bad.
2 Corinthians 5:10- For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
Ignore no more, the "Gospel" for it is the power of God that saves us from sin. Romans 1:16- For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
It is the Word of God that answers every question concerning life. The why's when, how, what, where of life. It also answers the personal question "what must I do to be saved?"
The "BIBLE" whose author is God Himself, is the only "INERRANT" book ever written. It is the only book that outlines with detail life itself. It is the only book that depicts everyday life now, in the future and in the past. IT IS LIKE NO OTHER BOOK! NO OTHER BOOK CAN TOUCH IT!!
Ignore no more, God and His Word, for everything that is needed for life and living is found in the Word of God.
The "BIBLE" is the only written book that God has given to mankind for instructions on life and living. It will never be rewritten for God has spoken once through HIs Word and there is nothing more to be said from now throughout eternity. It is all in His book, therefore, ignore it it no more.
Ignore no more, "THE WORD OF GOD" for it has instructions on how to get saved for those of you that are not and it also has instructions on how to remain in the faith if you are saved.
Today, the choice is laid before all of us to receive, reject or ignore the Gospel as if it does not exist or have nothing to do with us.
The good news is this: Accept, reject or ignore God and His Word is a personal choice and that means that each one of us will have to individually stand before God and answer in the end. No one else but you and God will appear that great day when you transition from earth to eternity.
No, our minds can not comprehend how it all will unfold and it is not for us to try to figure it out, but, the fact of the matter that remains is that God's Word declares that it will happen.
Today is the day of preparation to one day meet Christ. Are you daily making preparation? Are you ready to meet Him?
In this text we are reminded that when that day comes every knee will bow before God and every tongue will confess to God.
The day of accountability is coming for all of us. The unsaved will give an account of their life living. The saved will be rewarded according to their works.
ALL will give an account of what we did with the time God gave us while we lived here on earth. What benefit were we to the Kingdom of God, what benefit were we to the lost, needy, poor, sick, homeless, imprisoned, etc? Matthew 25:40 in as much as you have done it unto the least of these my brethren, you have done unto me. These are the word of Christ to His disciples, you and I too.
How are you living your life? Is it to please God or self?
As I stated in yesterday's message, we were created to glorify God and please Him.
Do not be distracted by the world and miss God. Earth is your temporary residence. Our "TENT" (earthly bodies) are set up for a short period of time and then it must be taken down to never be put up again.
How will you answer when you stand before God if you have lived your life in rejection of HIm and His Word? How will you answer?
Ignore your options now to receive or reject the Gospel, but, you will not have that choice when you stand before God for your decision would have been already made and your judgment would have already been determined by your choices when you yet lived.
This text starts off by saying "IT IS WRITTEN." Yes, the Word of God is written for you and I, therefore, we are without excuse. It is written so that we may know the heart and mind of God concerning His will for us and all things that pertains to godliness and life.
There is danger in ignoring the "Gospel," for if and when we do, we are putting our soul at risk of damnation when life on earth is over.
Ignore no more!
