images10“The hand of my Savior is strong, And the love of my Savior is long; Through sunshine or rain, through loss or in gain, The blood flows from Calvary to cleanse every stain. There’s room at the cross for you, Tho millions have come, There’s still room for one Yes, there’s room at the cross for you.

”Friends don’t you love those words. “Tho millions have come, There’s still room for one.” One referring to you and I. That is why He is such a personal God, His appeal is personal. He seeks each individual separately.

The song also says, His hand is strong, and it is also long, along with his love, because He reaches out to save us no matter how far we have strayed and most of us if we have lived long enough have strayed pretty far into the abyss.

Each having their own personal war stories that we are still unable to erase from our memory. But my friends, good news, as soon as we move from this earth to that “earth made new” we will realize.

As “we try to remember our greatest trials, they will looked so small compared with the lavish celebration that will be surrounding us, that we will  not be able to speak them out loud, and imgresinstead we will only cry out, “Alleluia, heaven is cheap enough!” Then we will touch our fabulous harps and make heaven’s arches ring.”(E.G. White Early Writings pp 16-19)

My friends now we all must seal that vision into our minds and share it with others without losing our focus that there is a real God, and a real Son of God and a real Spirit that hovers over us all. In addition, a real heaven and soon to be new earth that  the redeemed will live throughout eternity.

But where I need you and I to focus today along with everything else is, if our mind is not set totally on things above, but has some tendencies at allowing the god of this world to keep our focus on the things of this earth then” our heartfelt prayers must be like Jeremiah.

imgres7“Oh that our head were waters, and our eyes a fountain of tears, that we might weep day and night” first, for ourselves who are God’s chosen that struggle with things of this world that we still hold on too.

And second, for those we love who feel this world has more to offer then a relationship with God, and last but not least, the world, who waits for us to tell them there is still hope and “a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life” at the cross for one.

My friends, our Salvation and the Salvation of others must become a passion that consumes every waking moment of our life because The Spirit of the Lord is upon His chosen to move now, there is no time to delay.

Remember, He hath anointed [each of us] to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent [us] to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to carrying-the-cross-300x200set at liberty them that are bruised.” Luke 4:18 (KJV)

And my friends, if  you seek God’s kingdom then you are God’s chosen, His elect, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession “for such a time as this” that the bible speaks of.

In addition, with that special status comes a responsibility. “If any man [or woman] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.[Because there is still room for one]” Luke 9”23 (KJV)


My Friends, where there is no vision, the people perish…..Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
