First I Have To Find My Self 10/11/2019

Greetings Brothers and Sisters, grace, peace, and Love to you in the name of God our Father and The Son and The Holy Spirit. God is so good to us. I thank Him for you. I consider it a great privilege to have this opportunity to share with you from God’s word concerning our ability to know ourselves. Lord God, I ask that you lead me and guide me as I explain from your word as it pertains to the subject of our ability to know or find ourselves, I thank You Lord in Jesus name Amen.

What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? (Matt 18:12). My friends, I remember conversations with students that I had the privilege of knowing for many years. During the period of time of graduating, the teachers would ask what are you going to do from here? are you going to college? The favorite answer was, I have to find my self. I use this age because it is the time in most people’s lives that they take on the responsibility of making decisions concerning their lives. The answer seems to be an acceptable excuse, meaning that they will decide to go to college after they explore life on their own terms. This is the same explanation, or something similar, given when you ask someone about their relationship with the Lord. I confess I did the same.

No one knows a car and all its design details better than the person that designed it. The same with a washing machine and dryer. It stands to reason that no one knows you better than your Creator. If you don’t know yourself by now it also stands to reason that you will never know yourself using the trial and error method. God knows you completely. He created you and He knows exactly who you are, and exactly what you need. God knows more about you than anyone including yourself. Think about it God created the universe and everything in it, in your mind you can’t even imagine anyone or anything greater than God. Amen. God created you, He knows you, and love you in spite of yourself. If you truly want to know yourself ask God.

Out of all God created He left and came looking for you and for me and for whosoever will listen. God is so good and so loving that He wants to save you from eternal condemnation. God doesn’t want you to suffer the corruption of the abyss. God made provisions to deal with the sin question in our life that destines us for condemnation. It is the sin in our lives that separate us from God. The wages for sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). God loves you so much that He sent His Only-begotten into this world to die on the cross for your sin and mine and the whole world. The scripture says “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believe in Him shall have eternal Life (John 3:16). This invitation is only good while you are yet alive. It is rare for a man to know just when His time is up. Don’t take that gamble, accept God’s invitation now. How many times have you heard that someone died and the coroner can’t find the reason for their death? You don’t have to be sick, no one has to kill you, you can just die. Your days are numbered. Believe in Jesus while you still have breath. When you die it is too late. Don’t waste your time trying to get your life together first, no matter what you do unless you come to Jesus you will always fall short. Don’t be afraid my friends, Anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved Romans 10:13). God wants you to come as you are.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ we must reach out to the unsaved and take them by the hand and lead them to Jesus, the time is drawing near. Let your light shine so that they will be able to see, every time someone comes to the Lord there is rejoicing in Heaven. Remember God gave the Gospel to you for you to give to others, and so that they can give it to others. On that great and wonderful day of the Lord, we shall all rejoice with Him together. Amen! God Bless You. Thank You Lord, Amen
