Sermon By Pastor Persinger-
[[A Prayer of Moses the man of God.]]
Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.
Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.
Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are [as] a sleep: in the morning [they are] like grass [which] groweth up.
In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret [sins] in the light of thy countenance.
For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale [that is told].
The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is] their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, [so is] thy wrath.
So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.
This life, right now, is your only opportunity to invest in your eternity.
Do you know why people squander their lives in things of this world?
because they Truly do not believe what the Word says.
- if you believed the Word, then you know that you will give an account for every idle word that comes out of your mouth
- if you believed the Word, then you know you are to love your neighbors, and love the brethren
-if you believed the Word, then you know you are to forgive all trespasses as Christ has forgiven your trespasses.
-if you believed the Word, you know that the life you live today will effect your eternity.
Whereas ye know not what [shall be] on the morrow. For what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
Don’t live your life in a way that would be displeasing to our Savior. Live your life knowing that you will face eternity sooner than you anticipated. Be ready to give an account. Be ready- so you may hear those sweet words “ Well done good and faithful Servant”.
Help us to see. Guide us through your Word. Speak to us and show us what has no value in eternity so we may live for you today, and not wait for tomorrow!
Thank you Jesus
