Saturday, May 8th. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Dr. Pierce Harris, a former pastor of the First Methodist Church of Atlanta, Georgia, preached to some prisoners. One of the prisoners got up and introduced him to the others with these words: “Several years ago, two boys lived in a town in north Georgia. They went to the same school, played together, and attended the same Sunday school. One dropped out of Sunday school and said that it was ‘sissy stuff.’ The other boy kept on going. One rejected Christ; the other accepted Him. The boy who rejected Christ is making this introduction today. The boy who accepted Christ is the honored preacher who will speak to us today!”

Choice made the difference.

In Joshua 24:14-15, Joshua gives the children of Israel (and us) this challenge:
“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. 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.”
That is the choice before us each day. My (our) choice does make a difference.

"God, my choice is You because You chose me first.

Bro. Bill

God, we love You!
