“Thoughts Aired”

“Thoughts Aired”

What in anything is worth anything?
What in life is worth the pain?
What’s worth losing to something gain?
What’s it all for if all goes to nothing?

Shine bright, dream, before vanishing;
Pray true, heart, for some hopeful time;
Fail fast, body, from this famishing;
Hang low, hands that worked the crime.

Above the soft white swims by,
Below the hard hears a goodbye
Uttered by dying lips, last dance,
Burns now away change’s chance.

Little lasts my strength for need,
Fallow lies the ground for seed,
Burns slow another part of given thread,
Stagnates the water and molds the bread.

Ends the dream of happy days,
Fades the hope of comfortable life,
Strife’s filled many yesterdays,
Comfort dies at the hands of strife.

Never forget it nor its value diminish,
What is worth most, treasure, cherish,
Until last breath, yes, until life’s finish,
Ever in salvation through Christ relish.

Sight to see the given good is imperfect, truth I say,
Damage see like the sun in the sky on a cloudless day.

Some food for thought

These breaths you take now
Could be the last ones you take.
Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed for you.
How are you using the time you’re given?

There’s more to life than breathing,
More to life than just getting by,
More to life than watching days go by.
We’re meant to live, to love, to thrive here.

We can disagree on many points
And about many things
But let’s remember to show our humanity
And to keep our sanity when talking, debating, arguing, etc.

We can fight for what we believe in
But not see others as less than human
Just because they believe something we don’t.
Show human decency in all communication.

No one is living for nothing.

“God’s Gospel is For All Sinners, For All of Us” Note by me.

“God’s Gospel is For All Sinners, For All of Us” Note by me.

Jesus Christ can set a person free in the most meaningful and true sense of the word.
He can free a sinner from the deserved punishment, from the penalty of committed sins, from the burden of guilt and shame, from condemnation and misery.
He can give rest to restless hearts, relief to troubled minds, comfort to the grieving, assurance to the doubting.
Yes, Christ can save sin’s slaves and make them His saints. He can redeem them. He can remake them. He can change them for the better, so they can become who they’re meant to be.

There is hope for fools and wretches.
There is hope for the hopeless, the condemned, the outcasts, addicts and criminals, degenerates and vile men and women.
Christ is the only hope for all these and all other people. The Gospel is the light of truth for all if us sinners, it’s the good news we all need and the message we’d be utter fools to reject, ignore, scoff at.

Today could be your last day alive and if you die unsaved, if you reject the Gospel, if you die without Christ, you won’t have anyone to blame but yourself.
God has made Christ the only Way to salvation, and peoples’ feelings and opinions against God’s way doesn’t change the reality that it is just as God says it is and other beliefs and ways won’t change it.

God calls all sinners daily to repent and believe, to come to Christ, to be saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ. He calls men and women, children and the middle-aged and the elderly, no matter what their skin color is, no matter where they live or work, no matter how much wrong they’ve done, no matter what sins they’ve committed in public or in private. All sinners, all people, are called by God to repent, to confess their sins and ask for God’s forgiveness, to be saved by Christ, to be reconciled to God the Father through Christ the Son.

God’s Gospel is the best news sinners can get and are given, the light that shines in the dark world to sinners who all need a Savior to rescue, redeem, remake, restore, strengthen, sanctify them, give them a purpose and mission in life to glorify God and obey Christ’s commands and His Great Commission, to become who they were created by God to be.
Thank God for the Gospel. Thank God for Jesus Christ. Sinners can be saved, there’s hope and love and true life and purpose still. Come to God through Christ today. It’ll be too late when you die.

God loves you and He wants you to love Him as a child loves and obeys his parent.
He calls the rebels to surrender to His sovereign rule. He calls the unbelievers to open their hearts and minds and believe and receive His truth. God calls sinners to repentance, to true life, to salvation, to true purpose, to restoration and renovation and renewal.

Glory to God for His love and holiness, His grace and mercy, His wisdom and longsuffering, His Gospel and His Son Jesus Christ!

“Creation Points to God” Note by me.

“Creation Points to God” Note by me.

–Note: Originally just a comment, shared here for anyone to read–

Creation isn’t to be idolized or worshiped but to serve as a pointer to the Creator, a reminder that all is made by God who is Maker, Architect, Sustainer, of all that was and is and will be, all made for His glory, all showing His creativity, majesty, expression of His attributes.
Design and complexity and variety and order, all evidence of God’s handiwork, and though but a good show of His infinite wisdom, yet is enough to give humans an idea of just what God has done, is still doing, and will do.
No one has a valid excuse for not believing in God, and excuses aren’t reasons anyway and so are void.

Turn your gaze to the bigger picture of reality and see that the natural order, all that is, is held together by the living God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things visible and invisible.
Until you’ve looked at that bigger picture, you’re just looking at a few pieces of the puzzle of reality, but you do have the other pieces available so it’s your responsibility to look at them, consider them, add them to the puzzle, and your mind will be wanting more pieces, more answers, and your heart will seek more of what it needs if your will is resolved to seek the truth wherever it leads.

The right place where it will lead you would be to the Cross of Christ, to a knowledge of God, there you’d have to accept the Maker’s conditions and life in Him.

Or you will turn away and reject what He has done for you and return to the darkness of your natural way of living in rejection of and rebellion against your Creator and Savior, which is the most foolish kind of rebellion, but need not be your end if you accept the truth before you die.
