Strings for Your Harp

     Part 1. The Beginning

        A. The Savior

          God owed us nothing - He gave us everything
          pertaining to life and godliness in His Son, the
          Lord Jesus Christ.

          No intelligent man has to be convinced that
          there is a God,
          though he may have to be convinced of which
          is the true God.

          It was through a tree that the first Adam lost
          his purity and power.
          It was on a tree that the last Adam bought back
          that purity and power
          for all who will accept Him.

          Satan lied to man about God,
          but he cannot lie to God about man.

          The first Adam had a perfect environment,
          but he failed.
          The last Adam had a polluted environment,
          but He triumphed!

          God, Who made the first Adam without a mother,
          and Who made the last Adam without a father,
          can easily make a saint out of a sinner.

          Wise men came and worshipped Him.
          They still do.

          God needs no alibis.

          God needs no sponsors.

          No man ever did, or ever will do God a favor -
          God does all the favors.

          A teacher may communicate truth by word.
          It is taught only by example.

          In a world suffocating in false love, Divine love
          is like a breath of oxygen.

          Jesus did not have the "Midas Touch,"
          He had the Mercy Touch

          I find it most intriguing to contemplate the fact
          that while men are considering what place to
          give Jesus Christ in history, He has already
          decided what place to give them in eternity

          Are the things we are living for
          worth Christ's dying for?

          Good Friday.
          Today- The Holy One
                    The Lowly One
                    The Lonely One
                    The Only One - Died
          To reconcile us to God- Amazing Grace!

          How sad He must have been that mighty
          morning when He had shattered the powers of
          hell, when He had led captivity captive and
          given gifts unto men, to find as He emerged
          from the tomb, with a million demons behind
          Him mourning that mighty Resurrection, that
          there was no welcoming party for Him.

          There can be no leadership of Christ without
          the Lordship of Christ.
