Do we pay attention to the Right Stuff?
Psalm 119:37 (TEV): “Keep me from paying attention to what is worthless.”
Don Whitney, professor at Midwestern Seminary said the following:
“We can talk on the phone as we eat fast food while using the ATM. Not only are we better at multitasking and becoming more productive and efficient, along with the increased pace, more is required of us. Therefore, we hurdle through life faster and faster, becoming busier and busier. The result is that in our busyness we are becoming increasingly efficient at leading meaningless lives.” In the world we are living in, we better wake up and look intently in what is going on . What has happened to America? Where is America headed? This morning, I want us to look to the downfall of Israel and the downfall of America. Our text is Isaiah 1:2. We will also look at Isaiah 2:11; 17; 22; 5:8, 11, 12, 18, 21. I think the downfall of America is wrapped up in the following 5 things: Possessions; Pleasures; Pride; Permissiveness and Perversion.
Years ago in walking to the elementary school I had to cross one busy street. Mom would say, “Charles, look both ways before you cross the street.” She would also say, “Always stop, look and listen.” That is great advice for the safety of children and great advice for the rest of us. At the street corner of Busy Boulevard and Hectic Lane, Stop! Look! & Listen! Listen to God’s word, “Be still and know that I am God!” Pray for America!
Happy Birthday America!
Concerning Friday’s Bible Study:
For the rest of the month of July we will take a break from Friday’s Bible Study. We will start back on Friday, August 6th. We will be taking on the “Hard Questions of Christianity & Life!”
Questions like: “How do we know that the Bible is the Word of God?” “Can we lose our Salvation? “ “What will God do about the Heathen that has never heard of the Gospel?” “What about Miracles?” Plus many more questions?
Revival! Revival! Lord Send a Precious Revival!
