Every member of the human race ultimately makes a
choice, either to accept the work of Jesus Christ on
his behalf, or to reject it. Christ died for the sins of
the world, so SIN IS NOT THE ISSUE! The issue
is "What will you do with Christ?"
Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as
it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at
that stumbling stone; as it is written, Behold, I lay in
Sion a stumbling stone and rock of offense: and who
soever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.
We should ask God to increase our HOPE awaken it when it is dormant,
comfirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it
up when it is overthrown.
