This is a One-Way Street (Gospel Light Minute X #362)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #362 titled, “This is a One-Way Street .” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

The Word of God, the Bible, tells you that God knows all about you. He knows where you live, He knows your name, He even knows the thoughts and the secrets of your heart. “The Lord looketh on the heart.”

Yes, God knows all about you. He knows the good and bad things in your life. All the bad things are sin. To disobey is to sin. No one has to tell us how to be bad, we just are bad. The Word of God says in Romans 3:23, “…All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. You see, you are a sinner and God says in Romans 6:23, “The wages of sin is death”. This death means to be separated from God and suffer in Hell for ever and ever.

Is there anything you can do to get rid of your sin by yourself? God says 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”. There is only one way to be saved, one way to have your sins forgiven. Continue reading “This is a One-Way Street (Gospel Light Minute X #362)”

So You Say You Are a Christian (Gospel Light Minute X #361)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #361 titled, “So You Say You Are a Christian.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

How long have you been a Christian?

You may say, “I try to keep the Ten Commandments and do the best I can.” Some people say, “I became a Christian when I got baptized.” Others say, “I was born into a Christian family.”

How does someone become a Christian?

If someone could become a Christian by being born into a Christian family, by keeping the Ten Commandments, or by being baptized, we need to ask ourselves a very important question: Why did Jesus have to come to earth and die on the cross? My friend, the Bible has the answer! Continue reading “So You Say You Are a Christian (Gospel Light Minute X #361)”

GLMX #229: A Gift You Will Never Want to Return

gift-to-give

This past week, the world celebrated the Christmas holiday. As part of the festivities, millions of people gave and received Christmas gifts. As has become customary, many of those who received gifts showed up at a store on the day after Christmas to return their gift in exchange for something else that they really wanted.

Those who liked the gifts they received will still have to deal with maintaining those gifts in order to keep them in good condition. However, eventually, a shiny new gift will one day become worn out and not so shiny or new.

What if I told you that there is a gift that you can receive that you would never consider wanting to return? What if I told you that there is a gift that you can receive that would not just make you excited and happy for a few moments, but would give you permanent peace and joy as you go through this life? What if I told you that there is a gift that you can receive that will be of more benefit and blessing to your life as you enter the New Year than anything you could possibly imagine? What if I told you that this is a gift that will never grow old, that will never decay, and that will never fall into disrepair or disuse? And, perhaps best of all, what if I told you that this gift is absolutely free and that it is being offered to you right now? Continue reading “GLMX #229: A Gift You Will Never Want to Return”
