IT WAS A CLOUDY AND RAINY DAY FOR OUR FOURTH TOURNAMENT OF THE SEASON
Fishers of Men, Alabama South’s fourth tournament at Millers Ferry was a success. Our Friday night meeting was held at Camden Baptist Church. We had a great Friday night with 31 present at the meeting. Brother Chris Wells’ message was from the Book of Revelations, Chapter 21, versus 1-8 and Chapter 22, verse 7. The question is: What awaits us after this life? In this message we find the answer. He explained how your future changes your present. For example, when you know your vacation is next week, you make sure your tasks are complete and everything is prepared for your absence. You are typically in a pleasant mood. This is because you are looking forward to your future plans. Brother Chris explained three things through Revelations 21:1-8:: the Glorious Truth for Believers, the Terrible Truth for the Lost and finally gives an invitation to come to the Lord. The Glorious Truth for believers is we will have a new Heaven and new Earth. Believers will be with Christ, have peace and harmony and fellowship with God and his church. There will be no sorrow or death. Everything will be renewed and we will have freedom! The Terrible Truth for the lost is a second death. An eternal lake of fire. The fire is never quenched and the wrath of God for sin and rebellion awaits the lost. But at last in Revelations 22:17, we have the invitation from the Lord. It simply tells us to “Come”. An invitation to put away the old life and come to the Lord, the water of life! Jesus lived the 10 commandments and died for our sins. Jesus took our punishment and God accepted his ultimate sacrifice. Jesus is now at God’s side. The standard for us is the 10 commandments. It seems like a no brainer when looking at it this way but we all fall short, Romans, chapter 3. We need to realize a destination awaits us all. You can spend forever in Heaven or in the alternative, Hell. We should all admit we are sinners and ask forgiveness so that we can “Come” to the Lord and take our place with him in Heaven for eternity. Do not let pride get in the way of Heaven. So knowing your future, Heaven or Hell, is very important. If you want to go to Heaven, you will love and trust in the Lord and have peace knowing your future destination. It will make you strive to always walk with Christ.
Thank You Brother Chris for the words of encouragement and reminding us that we all need to rely on the Lords trust and righteous path. At the end of the night we had 16 boats fishing on Saturday. We blasted the 16 boats off as soon as it was safe light.
