Vespers At The End Of The Sabbath

Joshus 24:14-15 (KJV)

 14 Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.

15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Walking with the Lord Jesus Christ must be an act of the Will for we cannot inherit our walk with the Lord from our parents, nor can it be passed on to us by association, nor by associating with Christ-followers.

We must make the decision, out of the intellect, to, this very day, and each and every day hereafter, to walk in the Light of God's Love if we desire to be saved to Eternal Life.

We must come to the realization that we need to - every single day that we breathe - consciously make the decision to give over our will and our way, to the care and safekeeping of The Creator God who loved - and loves - us enough to have sent His Only Begotten Son to become sin for us, and to die on that shameful tree, so that we might have abundant life.

John 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Jesus Christ stated that He had to be lifted up, as Moses' brazen serpent, so that by so doing, He would draw all men to Himself.

John 3:14
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

John 12:32
And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself."

It, therefore, must be understood, that as those who had been bitten in the desert by the vile serpent, because of sin, had to look upon the replica of the serpent to be healed, we, too, must look UP on the Crucified Jesus who became sin for us, and confess, and repent of our sin, so that we may be saved.

Jesus Christ is still calling, and drawing mankind to Himself. Won't you answer His call that you may be saved?

Look upon Jesus, sinless is He

Author: Franklin E. Belden

Look upon Jesus, sinless is He;
Father, impute His life unto me.
My life of scarlet, my sin and woe,
Cover with His life, whiter than snow.


Cover with His life, whiter than snow;
Fullness of His life then shall I know;
My life of scarlet, my sin and woe,
Cover with His life, whiter than snow.

Deep are the wounds transgression has made;
Red are the stains; my soul is afraid.
O to be covered, Jesus, with Thee,
Safe from the law that now judgeth me!
