Good morning brothers and sisters! This is a wonderful day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it. You know, God placed in us a gift and it's up to us to find out what that gift is. So stop looking sad, down and out. God made this day just for us. Regardless of what you may be going through, you should be thanking God for this day and rejoice in it. We didn't have to be here but God sees fit for us to be here in the land of the living.
Regardless of what we may be going through in this day and time, God has us here for a reason. God has a purpose for our life. He gave us gifts to operate in it. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 12:7-8 "A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge." Your gift may not be one of them but God gave you a gift.
To find out what it is go to God in prayer. After all, who knows about your gift more than the One who gave it to you. Amen... I have to tell you about one of my gifts God gave to me and that is the gift of witnessing to save souls for Jesus. But you know, we all should have that gift. That should be our number one in our lives. We are here today because only God touched us with the finger of love and woke us up this morning. I know for a fact that being a witness for Jesus IS my number one gift simply because Jesus came to me in a dream and said "go out and be a witness for me".
Ever since that dream back in 1999 I have been witnessing for Him every chance I get. I just can't help it, it's in me and it has to come out. I just love doing it and I have to operate in it. Look, just because you're a minister that doesn't mean you have to go out and start a Church on your own. Your ministry may be going out witnessing in the streets, in the prisons or even in the nursing homes. That's why I say to you to pray about your gifts. Not just praying about your gifts but pray about every thing that comes to your mind. Amen. You see, every minute someone leaves this world behind.
We are all in line without knowing it. Me our you could be next, we never know how many people are before us. You can not move to the back of the line and you can not step out of line. Just make sure you are ready to enter eternity with Jesus. That's right, my brothers and sisters, this old world is not our home. We are just here for a season on our way to our eternal home. There are only two places you can make your eternal home.
One of the places is in Heaven with Jesus our Lord and Savior. You know, the only One who died for you and me, the only One who thought we were worth saving, the One who said " I will go down and die for them, I will save them from their sins even though some are going to turn their back on me and reject me." So He stepped out of eternity and came to earth just for us and paid a big price to save us from our sins. The other place is called hell, a place of fire and brimstone, a place where you will burn forever and ever, a place where you will be with your father the devil forever and ever, a place where there will be darkness and no light, a place where there is no water or anything to drink to cool your thirst, a place where there is NO way out, a place where you will curse God Almighty.
In that place the devil will say "you believe me over God you foolish human being now lets burn forever and ever." So I ask you, please make Heaven your eternal home away from your earthly home. I will see you there! In Jesus' name, Amen...
