FROM MY HEART TO YOURS – BLUEGILL BILL
“My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things that I have made touching the King.: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer (Psalm 45:1).”
The psalmists (In the case of Psalm 45, the Sons of Korah), are willing writers who endeavor to write to the glory and praise of their King, in this case, the pre-incarnate Christ, who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. So it is with me and all other believers who are inspired by God to make their tongue “the pen of a ready writer.”
Since I’m an old geezer who wasted the best years of his life in regard to witnessing for King Jesus, I can only try to witness now in the best way possible for me to do so. Therefore I am making my best effort to present devotionals that will honor the King, and possibly persuade people to trust in Him. As you can readily tell, I’m not a Charles Spurgeon, or a John Bunyan, or a John MacArthur. I am in fact, limited in education, in intellect, and in ability. Even so, I hope to carry on in this manner as long as I possibly can, and when it becomes impossible, humanly speaking, carry on with the help on the One with whom “all things are possible.” So, please be aware of this: “King Jesus is a-listening, all day long, to hear some sinner pray.” If you or I are moved to “call upon the Lord,” we may be assured of one thing: That we have been “chosen from the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blame before Him.” (So it is declared in an inerrant way in Ephesians 1:4). Furthermore, it goes on that, “In love he predestined us for adoption, through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Jesus Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all thing according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance, until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory (Ephesians 1:5-14).”
Now the Word of God, in all places, declare that salvation is God, through the Lord Jesus Christ. Why some people desire to pretend that they must have a part in “saving themselves,” I have no idea. It just isn’t possible! Believe the Scripture, and trust in Him today!
With love and prayers for you and all of yours,
