This Week's Sermon ( 5-23-17 )

" I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.  "   Psalm 139:14-16


I understand in detail now what David meant when he said;

" for I am fearfully and wonderfully made "

I went to a dermatologist.

While I was waiting in his office, I was looking at the skin charts he has on his wall.

I was amazed at the multiple layers in human skin tissue.

I was also surprised to see how many layers within a strand of human hair.

I never knew how complex we are.

When the doctor came in I said - " God sure put a lot into making us, didn't He. "

His response was - " And that is not even the half of it. "


John said about Jesus;

" All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  "   John 1:3

When I look at insects that are so small I can hardly see them and realize how vast God is and still could make them that small with a brain, to be able to see, and with the ability to get around, I marvel at God.

When I look at the trees, bushes, plants, flowers and see all the intricate details within them, I marvel at God.

When I look at the mountains and the clouds and their design, I marvel at God.

When I look at the night sky and see the planets and stars and their positioning and design, I marvel at God.

I tell God, there are no words in my vocabulary to describe you Lord.

You are beyond amazing.

My friend, I do have cancer.

My wife died of cancer just shortly after my mother died.

Those of us who believe in Jesus will make it to Heaven.

Thank you for reading me all these years.

It is not like I'm going to die next week.

The doctor said this cancer will take time but there will be a lot of suffering before I die.

Always remember that Jesus, who is the Son of God and who is also God our creator said plainly;

" I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  "   John 14:6

Notice Jesus said;

I am the way, "

Jesus is not on a list of multiple choices of how to get to Heaven.

Jesus is not merely one of many ways to get to Heaven.

Jesus said He is quite literally the only way to Heaven.

Believing Jesus at His word is a choice we must make before we physically die.

After death is too late to make the choice. We must choose while we are still in this life.

The criminal just hours before he died on the cross next to Jesus made a wise choice in believing in Jesus.

According to Jesus, that criminal is forgiven and is in Heaven with Jesus.

 

" And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.  "   Luke 23:42-43

I'm anxious to meet you all in Heaven someday.

Hopefully, Jesus will return soon.

May the Lord Jesus bless you and keep you in His love and care.

By the way, Jesus still heals today just as He did 2,000 years ago.

Jesus is the same as He was when He walked this earth.

The writer of Hebrews said;

" Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  "   Hebrews 13:8
