    Gossip & Slander

    “A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret” (Proverbs 11:12-13).

    The Bible tells us that “a perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends” (Proverbs 16:28).

    Parables of Jesus

    Jesus' parables are short stories that teach a moral or spiritual lesson by analogy or similarity. They are often stories based on the agricultural life that was intimately familiar to His original first century audience.

    Some aspect of an unfamiliar concept, such as the kingdom of God, was compared to something from everyday life that could easily be understood.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    If you miss CHRIST...you miss EVERYTHING

    This is a true incident

    A man in his late forties lay in hospital in the city of Edinburgh. He knew that he was soon to depart this life, despite all the medical profession had tried for him. Calling the staff of the ward to him, he thanked them individually for all they had done for him...and told them he was soon to leave them to be with Christ whom he had trusted loved and served.

    Then calling to his bedside two young doctors who had done much to help him...he thanked them most sincerely, and told them he was soon to die. he then said "you are two young men, with the possibilities of great careers before you, but if you miss Christ in this life - you miss everything".....the two young doctors were moved to tears by the tender appeal of a man with a conviction as to the future.That night he passed from time into an eternity with Christ.

    We might ask ourselves "But how can anyone speak with certainty and conviction with death so near?"

    The only answer is, a personal experience of accepting Christ as Saviour.

    The Bible states clearly the ruin of man through sin.

    For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God
    (Romans 3:23)

    and the helplessness of man to atone for sin

    For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly (Romans 5:6)

    But God in mercy provided the perfect sacrifice for sin in the person of His Son Jesus Christ

    For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God (1 Peter 3:18)

    His death on Calvary fully met every demand of a Holy God, and also meets the need of every sinner who will bow in repentance before God and place trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour.

    This is just what the dying man in this incident did....and what you my dear reader and traveller to eternity must do if ever you are to share heavens joys and shun hells horrors.

    Time's is running low - Eternity looms ahead. Our hopes for heaven all rest in Christ. Our security against eternal judgement is Christ. He loves you He died to save you...turn to the Saviour now

    Dear reader IF YOU MISS CHRIST ....YOU MISS EVERYTHING.....please ask yourself where will you spend eternity?

    Thank you Julia, for sharing this message.

    It is the simple truth, and is relevant even now.

    I also encourage every reader, and also those who think they are saved from the judgement to come, to consider this question.....

    if you died tonight,

    where would you spend eternity?

    The Lord is faithful and true and will hear if you call to Him.... so do so today, while it is still today.....

    for tomorrow may never happen for you.

    Bless you ....><>
