I Survived...

Howdy agin' ya'll,
Well, here it is, another day on this side of the river and a good day to relax. The season of Christmas is come and nearly gone and I came through it still saved. I really enjoyed spending some time with my family and I think that it was the best Christmas get-together I have been to in a long time.
Yesterday we went to the Hospital and stayed with my sister while her husband had some gall stones removed. He is back home and I pray doing well. (Poor fellar, couldn't eat none of that good food that we had at his house while he were in the horspital.) Anyway, we didn't leave the "city" til about 6:15pm and I couldn't wait to get to church service.
I am amazed at how different my desires are now. I love people and the things of God so much that sometimes I can hardly hold it all in. The services are SOOOOO good and I sincerely love the man of God who preaches the good word of God to us so we can live and BE the sons of God!! Ain't it cool to be numbered with the saints?
There is no way that I would want to live with sin as my master. How people say you have to sin and still be saved is mind-boggeling. If you commit a sin the guilt and shame that it brings is so immediate and devastating. I believe that people WANT to commit sin because of the self-love and carnal desires that they have in their life. Thank God that those desires can be washed away and the peace of God can flood your soul to such an extent that you don't WANT to commit sin. THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!
I have been reading a book about Bro. D.S. Warner and the Birth of a Reformation and it is amazing and a blessing what the early ministers had to go through just to establish the standard of holiness that God intended for us to have. If you get a chance to read it I highly recommend it to you. The Bible states that "without holiness no man shall see the Lord" so, if you don't have God in your life and aren't living holy then what are you leaning on to get you through the judgment? Also by holiness I am not talking about the "speaking in tongues" type of holiness that people can have and still commit sin. Think about it friend and don't let this world keep you away from serving God!
Well I guess that I better go, I have some things that I need to get done.
Ya'll be good,

Amen and Amen. Why people don't want this great salvation and way of life, I cannot understand. Its the best life I have ever lived - its just as sweet if not sweeter than it was 13 and a half years ago when I first got saved. I'm so glad that you are back in the fold of God little brother - I praise God for the marvelous mercy he had on you! Praised God.
