Two patients limped into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.
Both had trouble walking and appeared to require a hip replacement.
The FIRST patient was examined within the hour, x-rayed the same day,
and had a time booked for surgery the following day.
The SECOND saw his family doctor, after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment.
Then he had to wait 8 weeks to see a specialist.
Then he was x-rayed, which wasn't reviewed for another week.
Finally he had surgery scheduled for a month later.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.
Next time you're ill, you may consider going to a VETERINARIAN!
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness,
but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to
come to repentance.
LIGHT from the WORD.
We memorize things: social security numbers, driver's license numbers,
phone numbers, rhymes, senseless riddles.
We memorize things: it's just part of the things we DO.
Why not remember a five-point sermon that uses a plan of salvation?
Then USE it, telling people about Jesus!
ANY Christian can do it!
I. God's PERSONALITY
He is "not slow about His promise" like men.
He is loving and wants ALL mankind to have the privilege of being saved.
II. God's PROMISE
ANYONE can be saved.
No matter what you've been, or done.
III. God's PATIENCE
God is "longsuffering."
He is patiently waiting, through the sinfulness of men, to receive those who will come.
IV. God's PROVISION
God demonstrated His love for mankind through Jesus.
And God's provision for salvation is in Jesus ALONE!
V. God's PLAN
God's perfect plan is to save men from the end results of sin.
God's plan INCLUDES:
REPENTANCE: Turn from self to Jesus (See Mark 1:15)
CONFESSION (See Rom. 10:9-10)
COMMITMENT (See Luke 9:23)
MEMORIZE that short outline AND the verses!
Then USE it to share Jesus with others!
