THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

J.M. Kennedy once told the following story.

"I am told that an Indiana cemetery has a tombstone over
one hundred years old that bears the following epitaph:
'Pause Stranger, when you pass me by.
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, so you will be.
So prepare for death and follow me.'

Someone had scratched a reply under the inscription.
It read:
'To follow you I'm not content, Until I know which way you went.'"

Light from the Word.

There are many things in the world which are, without doubt, WRONG.
The Christian should certainly “abstain” from them.

There are also many things in the world which are “shadowy”
concerning morality.
The Christian should also abstain from them.

There are some places we just should not go.
There’s a conflict when a person calling themselves a Christian
goes to a gambling casino.

But perhaps the largest conflict noticeable today is in a Christians
SPEECH.
When a Christian gossips, the evidence of Christianity is “shadowy.”
When a Christian curses, the evidence of Christianity is “shadowy.”
Should the true Christian not “abstain” from those things?


Nothing detours lost souls from Christ more than a conflict of a
Christian’s witness.

If you are really a Christian, let the evidence be CLEAR!

Love ya!
