We are born captives to sin.
Perhaps you have tried to escape from sin by yourself and found it impossible. Are you worried about every failure, every wrong-doing, and every sin adding to your sin debt? You know that you don’t measure up against God’s absolute righteousness. Do you want to be able to face the future with total freedom from your sin? You need the Lord Jesus Christ to set you free. His death and resurrection provide the only way you can be fitted for God’s presence.
People have different responses to the Gospel: Some hear and believe; others hear but don’t believe. Listen to the words of the Lord Jesus, “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross so that you can go free. You will be free from the judgment that your sin deserves.
Time rushes on! Where will you be for eternity? Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ so that there is no need for fear and uncertainty regarding the future. The last moment of your life on earth will happen but the best is yet to come!

A man rushed into a train station one morning. Gasping for breath, he asked,
“When does the 8:01 train leave?”
“At 8:01,” responded the ticket agent.
“Well,” the man replied, “it’s 7:59 by my watch, 7:57 by the town clock, and 8:04 by the station clock. Which am I to go by?”
From drugs to Christ – Testimony of Ron Mills
I grew up in a happy home, the youngest of three boys. Both my mother and father were good parents who on occasion would go to church.
Debt relief brightens the future
Debt is a very heavy burden and carrying the load can cause depression. It can strain relationships. If financial analysts label the escalating student debt load as a crisis – how must the students feel as they embark on their future carrying such a heavy weight! Not only are there financial debts but there is the greater issue of spiritual debt.
When I was nine years old, somebody gave me a cage with a pretty bird inside. I didn’t like to see that poor little bird in a prison like that, so I decided to let her go free. But I soon found out it was not that easy. You see, that little bird was born in a cage, and all her life was spent in one. Even with the cage’s door open, she refused to escape!

To the rescue…
Sometimes, I hear a story in the news that reminds me of the care that the Lord Jesus showed when He came to rescue all who will trust in Him.
One of those stories concerns Jo Cox, a 41 year old wife and mother of two, who was a committed and caring Member of Parliament in Britain.
God’s time is now
“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
Someone might say, “I have to wait for God’s time to be saved”.
GOD’S TIME IS NOW! Yes, today!
Tomorrow may be too late.

A home for joey
Have you ever visited the zoo and watched the strange looking animals with short front legs and long hind legs as they bounce around the enclosure? These animals are called kangaroos or wallabies.
A powerful reminder
A friend of mine came into a drop-in centre the other day waving an item in her hand and announcing that the new phone books had arrived. At that moment, another friend was reminded of a comedy movie in which actor Steve Martin’s character showed a whole lot more excitement about the arrival of his phone book. I had to go to YouTube to watch the clip, since I wasn’t familiar with the movie.
Suppose it’s true after all?
Two friends were talking about religious topics. They discussed the question of punishment for sin in a future life. They settled to their own satisfaction that there was none. They decided that Hell was a myth. They argued that there was no need for God or a Supreme Being since scientists say that the universe and life and man could have come into being through “natural” causes.
Never turned away
There are times when we feel like putting that sign up! Life gets busy, and we’d like nothing more than a little rest. But it isn’t a message that we want to see. For example, you wouldn’t want to see it when you were desperately needing help.
Donating intentionally to charities is a common occurrence. People donate money and gifts-in-kind to charities of their choice. But Jane and Brian Lowe in Halifax, Nova Scotia have major regrets about the gift they didn’t intend to give. They never intended to donate $50,000 worth of diamonds, pearls and gold jewelry to Diabetes Canada. It was a huge gift and they are trying to reclaim it.
What about the future
Though we are concerned about the young today, this article is especially written for those who are getting on in years and whose life lies mostly behind them. It seems like yesterday, doesn’t it, since we were young ourselves, with life brightly before us?
