Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
One day, a little boy was seen lounging around a circus
tent. If anything in the world is tempting to a boy, it is a circus. Knowing this, a gentleman said, “Come,
Johnny, let’s go into the circus.”
“No,” said the boy. “Father would not like it.”
“But your father need not know it,” said the man.
“But I will know it,” said the boy, “and when my father
comes home tonight, I could not look up into his face.”
Ah, how important! Able to look into our Father’s face!
He has been very good to us. No good thing has He withheld from us, and yet so
many times we find ourselves unable to look into His face. May God help us live
so close to Him, so pure and so holy, that all the time we can be able to look
into His face.
Let us remember the words of 1 Peter 1:13-19: “Wherefore
gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace
that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient
children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your
ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner
of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye
call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every
man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know
that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from
your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the
precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
God, let our desire always to be able to look on Your
face. Amen.Bro. Bill
In GOD we Trust!
