Why are you waiting?

Today's article is directed toward people who are not Christian. God is calling through the good news of Jesus of Nazareth to accept the gift of salvation. Therefore, I am inviting you to come to a Christian church to accept Jesus as your lord and savior. I really do pray that you will go to any of the more than 200 Christian churches in Liberty County. I know you would be welcome at any of them.

Choose to do things God's way

Choose, on this day, who you will serve. Choose to become who God is through Jesus Christ. Many are called but few are chosen. God has lain before man life, death, blessings and curses. It is our choice to listen to and obey God's word. We choose to be chosen through our obedience and willingness to do what the Father tells us to do.

Mom always said, "Think before you speak." Dad used to say, "Son, you don't have to say everything you think." And in spite of all of that good advice, I have said more dumb things that I care to remember.
