Information is power! But only if the information is listened to and heeded. Many people receive valuable information that can help them in a variety of ways, but instead of paying attention to it and implementing it into their lives, they ignore it. As a result, they do not benefit from its value at all. Endless examples could be cited.
It’s war! It’s already been declared, on us! We have no choice in the matter. There’s no negotiating for peace. We’re caught in the middle, and there’s no escape. Battles are being fought in our streets from house to house at this very moment. Casualties are high. The enemy is ruthless, merciless, bloodthirsty. He is not limiting his vicious attacks to able bodied men. Women and children equally are being lined up in his crosshairs, and many are dying. He will accept no appeasement., no compromise, no truce. Only our total destruction will satisfy him. Confusion reigns. Many are in agony. Death is everywhere. The stench of decay fills the air. We must fight relentlessly. We must hold our ground. We can never surrender. We must win or die, forever...
A great deal is said these days about values. Family values, life values, the value of life itself. What do people mean when they speak of such values? And where do these values come from?
Jesus went to the cross to die to pay the price for the guilt of the sins of all humanity for all time (Heb. 9:27-28). For all humanity? Yes, for all humanity. For all time? Yes, for all time. But Jesus’ dying on the cross holds its greatest meaning for you when you view it as having been done for you. You personally. You cannot make the death of Jesus have meaning for all humanity. You can only make His death have meaning based upon how you personally react to it. So, are you worth the death of Jesus?
