The way of life or death


Church Family,

Today in my daily bible reading I read:

Jeremiah 21:8-9 “And to this people you shall say: ‘Thus says the LORD: Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death.9He who stays in this city shall die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence, but he who goes out and surrenders to the Chaldeans who are besieging you shall live and shall have his life as a prize of war." 

How does this happen? How can a people who are supposed to follow God, become like this? Yet, even today, there are churches that will close their doors for the last time this week. Over the years they listened to others, rather than the men of God, they had poor leadership, followship and any of other ships that would sink the church. Now their only option is to close the doors. Israel in it's pride failed to listen to God. Long before He said this, God had already laided out the way of life and death. The people in their pride just didnt think that God meant that about them. Now, their existence is their prize. Gone is the church, nation, capital, etc. that was their joy at one time. 

Can I challenge you today to pray for the churches around you? Maybe you need to pray for the person that has been warned over and over, but never listens. Give them grace just as the Lord as given grace to you.

Reminders:

1) Homecoming this Sunday. Bring enough food for your family and others. NO evening services

2) Turn back your clocks 1 hour on Saturday night.

3) Be sure to bring your worship with you this Sunday!

Love, Serve, Go
