I have a lot to be thankful for. God has truly blessed me. Again, I can say with my Dad, “God has smiled on me.” The Lord has shown me great favor and mercy down through the years, and not only me, but my entire family, and everyone living today. If you are alive, you have a lot for which to be thankful. I have the blessings of health and strength. I have the blessing of many beautiful and healthy children. I have the blessing of a beautiful wife and a son and daughter born on my birthday. I enjoy the blessings of good food to eat, clothes to wear and a place to stay. Since I first preached this devotional message, in a small church, in a little city called Apalachicola, Florida, nearly twenty years ago, I have been serving the Lord full-time, and God has taken care of me, my wife and our seven children by faith in Him. God has been good to me and it has been a joy serving Him. However, the person I thank God the most for is His Holy Son, Jesus Christ.

Knowing the sacrifices that Jesus Christ made on the cross for me and feeling like it’s in God’s hands, all I have to do is just give my best, commit the rest to Him. Everything else is taken care of. That takes the weight off anybody’s shoulders. It’s to give you confidence to know that you’ve got somebody looking out for you.” His name is Drew Brees.

Albert Pujols

He is one of the top players in Major League Baseball. He won the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2001, has since been selected as an All-Star nine times, and won the National League Most Valuable Player Award three times. He has also twice won the National League Hank Aaron Award. ESPN.com selected him as the greatest player of the decade for 2000 to 2009. As a member of the St. Louis Cardinals, in the 2011 World Series, he established a new record with 14 total bases and he became one of the only three players to hit three home runs in a World Series game.

Despite all of his success, he says, “What has not changed is my love for Jesus Christ. In the spring of 1998, my soon to be wife began sharing with me the love of Jesus. My most exciting moment came when I asked Jesus Christ to come into my life. If it weren’t for Jesus, I would not be where I am today and my life would be without purpose. I’ve heard kids say they want to be just like me when they grow up. They should know I want to be just like Jesus.” He also said, “My life’s goal is to bring glory to Jesus. My life is not mostly dedicated to the Lord, it is 100% committed to Jesus Christ and His will. God has given me the ability to succeed in the game of baseball. But baseball is not the end; baseball is the means by which my wife and I glorify God. Baseball is simply my platform to elevate Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.” His name is Albert Pujols.

GLMX #48: So You Think You Are a Pretty Good Person?

Good person

Good person

It is true, most people are pretty good. However, contrary to popular opinion, not all good people go to Heaven. In fact, you do not have to be a bad person to go to Hell. Notice what the Bible says in Titus 3:5: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us…” The Bible also states in Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” You can see that even if you are a good person, and even if you do good works, God’s Word declares that your goodness is not enough to get you to Heaven.

Another interesting fact found in the Bible is that you are not really as good as you think you are. Ecclesiastes 7:20 states, “For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.” The Bible also says in Romans 3:10 and 23, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one…For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

It is true that you must have goodness to get to Heaven, but the truth is you do not possess that goodness in and of yourself. Isaiah 59:2 says, “Your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” You see, everyone deserves to die and go to Hell because of their sin; however, Jesus loved us so much that He shed His sinless blood and died in our place. Three days later, Christ arose from the grave, proving that He had conquered death and hell, and establishing that He alone has the power to give us eternal life. Romans 5:8 says “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #27

On the banks of the Caddo Lake near the Louisiana border not far from Marshall, Texas, is a little village named Uncertain. Imagine how confusing it is when a resident of this place visits in other lands. He is asked, “Where do you live?”

The fellow says, “Uncertain.”

“You mean you are not certain where you live?”

“Yes, I am certain that I live in Uncertain.”

A lot of Christians are certain they live in uncertain.

In this week’s sermon, Daniel Whyte III addresses the issue of Christians who are uncertain of their salvation. He provides Biblical truth that will help those struggling with this problem to understand their standing in Christ
