WHAT TO DO NOW-part 1-

AT THIS point let us change our focus from past history, and the crisis that lies just ahead, and consider the heart of the matter.

You can be God’s child just now –this very minute- if you will.  God has already done all that a God can do, until you accept what He has done.  God loved you so much “that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).


HAVE you received that gift? All who receive Him are given power to be God’s children.  “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12).  You belong to God.  He made you.  So you are also His by creation. He redeemed you. So you are His by redemption.  But He will not take you by force; you must choose to be his; you must acknowledge His rights, and your relationship. When you yield to Him, then you are His.  See Romans 6:16.  Just the minute that you surrender your life to His guidance, that minute He takes control.  Then it is a minute-by-minute walk with God.  Led by Him, you are His child.  “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Romans 8:14).

Do you know that sin is the transgression of God’s Law? “Whosoever commiteth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law” (1 John 3:4).  See also Romans 5:13 and 7:7.

Do you know that the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord? “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all the work which he had made.  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made” (Genesis 2:2-3). See also Exodus 20:8-11.


WITH an earthy friend we make connection with a look for a touch.  With Jesus we make union with our thoughts. You believe God’s Word.  You believe with the heart.  See Romans 10:10. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). Then the faith of Jesus comes by studying God’s Word.  See Revelation 14:12.  We must study to show ourselves approved unto God, and then obey present truth.  See 2 Timothy 2:15.  Then that Word (in your heart) begins the new life which is the “new birth”.  See 1 Peter 1:23.  Then, keep drinking the milk of the Word, and so, “grow”.  See 1 Peter 2:2. DO NOT WAIT FOR SOME FEELING. TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD, NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL.
