The Survivor Tree - #6620
Our only hope is clinging to the tree where God's judgment fell on His Son. Or, more importantly, to cling to the One who died on that tree, which means abandoning all other hopes: our pride, our religion, our self-reliance. And realizing we are as desperate and as helpless as a man being swept out to sea, and then clinging to the One whose death on that tree for us is literally our only hope - your only hope.
Escaping the Flood, Or Not - #6435
It's eternally important that you answer the door and let Jesus save you. The Bible cries out, "Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart" (Hebrews 4:7 ).
Tsunami Heroes - #6401
The tsunami of death and judgment is coming. The warning has been sounded. The lives of the people around you depend on someone leading them to the high ground of Jesus' cross. You are their chance, and you're a candidate to be one of Heaven's heroes.
A Precarious Planet - #6399
Every day on this planet, a "tsunami" called death sweeps 150,000 people into eternity ready or not. Since it happens with, you know, one heart attack here and one traffic accident there, we don't see it on the news like we do an attack of a killer wave. But it's real, it's relentless, and it's coming my way.
The Audit of a Lifetime - #6378
The Auditor's told us how to take the dread out of the audit. It says, "If we judge ourselves, we would not come under judgment" (1 Corinthians 11:31). Face it now so you don't have to face it then. It's no wonder He's so deeply interested in how we live our life. He's pretty heavily invested with His blood.
You Can't Make it Go Away - #6333
If you're hoping to pay off sin with some good things you do, and you think that will work at your appointment with God, it's not going to work. The payment has already been made. The only question God will ask you is not, "What did you do with church?" But, "What did you do with My Son who died for you?"
A Precarious Planet
The high ground is on a hill with a cross on it. Millions of people have fled to that cross and found safety. And Jesus stands there today, lovingly extending His invitation: "Come to Me" (Matthew 11:28). A precarious planet. A fragile life. An appointment with God. A way to be ready. It's a good day to run to Him.
Missing at Christmas
That's the question God is asking some of us as He looks at our lives - "Where's Jesus?" It's possible that, like our grandson that day, you have everything except Jesus.
The Most Tragic Choice - #6143
God asks this sobering question in Hebrews 2:3, our word for today from the Word of God, "How shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation?" That's how most people miss heaven. They don't out-and-out reject what Jesus did. They just ignore His rescue; either not caring or mistakenly thinking that they'll make it out somehow. They won't. Only Jesus can save you.
No Such Thing as Getting Away With it - #6086
There's really no such thing as "secret sin." If God knows, it's no secret. If God knows, you're caught. And you can be sure God knows, and He loves you too much to let you ultimately get away with rebellion against Him, with things that eat away your soul that slowly destroy you. And the best time to turn around is right now, because the bill is getting higher every day.
