THE CHILDREN'S BREAD (2)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*THE CHILDREN'S BREAD (2)*
Luke 23:43 *And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Do not lose your bread to strangers
Rom 11: 30 *For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:*
Another great lesson we can learn from Christ's encounter with the Canaanite is that we ought to ensure we do not lose our bread to strangers.
There are further lessons we could learn.
First, the story of the thief on the cross teaches us that a person could actually make Heaven without having experienced a long time of redemption. The thief on the cross stands as a perfect example of a man, a thief for that matter.
No records of salvation, no records of baptism, no records of service, yet he got away with Heaven, just by believing! (Matt 27:38, Lk 23:32-43, Mark 15:27.
Here, it must, however, be pointed out that no one should wait for a last moment as the thief found himself.
This is because there may never be a last moment of opportunity. The bible nowhere preaches that we wait for a last moment. The bible preaches, saying ,*".....now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."* ( 2 Cor 6:2)
Second, the penitent thief and the blasphemous thief both showed that people can be around Jesus yet remain to choose either to repent or remain unrepentant.
Third, It shows that salvation is a children's bread.
Fourth, plea for mercy is key to receiving the children's bread.
You can have your children's bread now and live long enough before you finish your God-given assignment.
Do not wait till the last moment to repent. There may never be any.
Repent now and live to enjoy the children's bread!
2 Cor 6:2 teaches two things:
First, there is *'...a time accepted....'.* For the thief, the time he was saved was a time accepted.
Second, the time he was saved became *'....the accepted time...'*
Third, it is instant, it is today!. Salvation can not be postponed.
*Call to Word action.*
2 Cor 6:2 *For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, And in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Judas was with Jesus for three and a half years. The thief on the cross was there only for as long as the crucifixion lasted.
Lord, help me to live to eat and enjoy the children's bread in good health and prosperity in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
