“Where Could I Go But to the Lord?”
Many of you may remember this old familiar hymn sung down through the years. But, its lyrics are timeless. “Living below in this old sinful world…” How true. And, it’s a world that is getting more sinful by the minute.
People today seem confused, unaware, and uneducated as to what is “right” from what is “wrong.” Our nation’s leaders have all but gone astray following after the lust of the flesh and the sinful desires of the world. We almost seem hopeless; lost in a world gone mad.
But, thanks be unto our GOD through the blood of our loving Savior, Jesus Christ, we have HOPE when all seems lost. There is NO other place to go but unto the Lord; our rock and fortress in the time of both personal and national need. Shootings, killings, hate crimes, and ungodly acts of sinful behavior bombard our world’s airways and media. We never know from day-to-day what is going to happen next. But, I know someone who does…And, HE is the same someone whom I place my Hope, Trust, and Faith…Jesus.
The Bible teaches us that in the “last days” (before the return of Jesus) perilous (dangerous, unsafe, terrifying) times shall come. It goes on to say, “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, unrestrained, fierce, despiser of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away.” (II Timothy 3)
The Apostle Paul wrote this message nearly 2,000 years ago but it is as timely as our front page news being portrayed right in front of our eyes. Thanks be unto our Lord I do have a place to go; a place of refuge and shelter from the storms and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. “Where Could I Go But to the Lord?” The answer is simple, “there is NO better place to go.”
It is my prayer that you know this place to go…The place is called Calvary where Jesus died to protect and to deliver us from our sins and the works of a sinful world gone mad.
Do not fear; do not be dismayed for God will bring ALL things unto His glorious Power and Strength as the day quickly approaches when Jesus shall return to set up His earthly kingdom and God himself shall wipe away all our tears. Oh, what a Day that will be! Until then, my heart will go on singing and praising the LORD for there is no other place to go but unto the Lord. Amen.
Remember, God Love You,
