Which of you convinceth me of sin?

Written by Rev.Anthony Smith

Continued from page 1
John 8:42-49 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your fatherrepparttar devil, andrepparttar 135074 lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer fromrepparttar 135075 beginning, and abode not inrepparttar 135076 truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, andrepparttar 135077 father of it. And because I tell yourepparttar 135078 truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I sayrepparttar 135079 truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. Then answeredrepparttar 135080 Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. How many today dishonor their Pastor, their Minister? How many Churches have you seen break up becauserepparttar 135081 people become offended byrepparttar 135082 word being preached? Jesus askedrepparttar 135083 same question;”Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I sayrepparttar 135084 truth, why do ye not believe me?” Why isrepparttar 135085 Truth so hard to believe, is it because ofrepparttar 135086 traditions of your fathers, fathers? Is it because you were taught by your parents or aunts or uncles that there is something wrong with whatrepparttar 135087 Bible says? Have many been taught wrong for so long that they now believe it to berepparttar 135088 truth? What is so wrong with saying that Hell is real, what’s wrong with saying thatrepparttar 135089 fire will never be extinguished and a person will suffer in extreme heat for ever, having onlyrepparttar 135090 smell of fire and brimstone and burning flesh to awaite them, a flesh that will never be consumed, because of their rejection ofrepparttar 135091 truth? What is wrong with quoateing scripture as it was delivered from God? And what aboutrepparttar 135092 “Falling Away,” that Jesus spoke of ? 2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed,repparttar 135093 son of perdition; Is this a falling away fromrepparttar 135094 church, will people stop going torepparttar 135095 church building, is this what Jesus ment? No. Its a falling away fromrepparttar 135096 truth, a falling away fromrepparttar 135097 commandments, its a falling away fromrepparttar 135098 ordanices of God. Its man worshipingrepparttar 135099 creature more thanrepparttar 135100 creator. The churches will be full of religious people, a people that will be rejected by Christ at His return, not haveingrepparttar 135101 Spirit but of a carnal mind. “Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I sayrepparttar 135102 truth, why do ye not believe me?”


Prioritize Your Life for Success

Written by Jan Wallen

Continued from page 1

The Christian knows to place his priorities inrepparttar order of God, spouse, family, job and then finally hobbies. Yet human nature guides him downrepparttar 127066 road that lays waste to any priority he may set for himself while in church on Sunday mornings. Most ofrepparttar 127067 other religions ofrepparttar 127068 world teach these same principles as well, and still people of all faiths stumble down this same road without fail.

Priorities, like God, require a commitment in our lives. We must commit ourselves to establishing our priorities and then to meeting them one at a time. God, of course, should berepparttar 127069 number one commitment you make to yourself. As through God, you will findrepparttar 127070 strength and fortitude to establish and meet each of your other priorities in life; priorities of spouse, family, and job, each in their proper order.

Romans 12:2 NIV Do not conform any longer torepparttar 127071 pattern of this world, but be transformed byrepparttar 127072 renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

It is not enough to sit in church on Sunday mornings and pledge to make Godrepparttar 127073 priority in your life. You must go torepparttar 127074 further extreme. You must make a commitment in your life to make Godrepparttar 127075 number one priority in your life. And then you must follow through on that commitment. Then and only then, will you find repparttar 127076 abilities within yourself to reach beyond what you ever thought you were capable of doing, to commit yourself to setting priorities in your life, even outside ofrepparttar 127077 work place, and to followrepparttar 127078 commitment to your priorities withrepparttar 127079 fulfillment of your goals.

If you do not have God in your life, I encourage you to meet Him so that you to may experiencerepparttar 127080 joy and fulfillment ofrepparttar 127081 renewing of your mind, as so many of us have experienced. If God is only in your life on Sunday mornings, I encourage you to reach into your heart, pastrepparttar 127082 lip service that you are offering, and finally makerepparttar 127083 commitment to put God asrepparttar 127084 top priority in your life.

In conclusion, I applaud each of you who makerepparttar 127085 commitment to manage your time and priorities inrepparttar 127086 work place. It is my hope that this article has opened your eyes torepparttar 127087 part of your life that is bigger than work,repparttar 127088 33% of your life that is spent doing non-work related activities. Spend them well.
