"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day" (Genesis 1:1-5).
Today's Morsel: A few days ago, my wife and I drove to another church in our District to celebrate in their 50th year church anniversary. They went back to the old church building that they had some of their first services in. Many of the first pastors and saints returned to tell stories of the church, their salvation that took place there, stories of their weddings that had taken place in that building, and many other memories were shared. It was an exciting time for so many. We should all be ready to share the story about the place, time, and date that God saved us. Our personal testimony should be one of the things that we often talk about. The first five books of the Bible are really just sharing with us what God did. The first five verses of Genesis chapter 1 are God putting into place the New Testament plan of salvation. It says that He divided the light from the darkness. And that is what salvation is. When God saves you, He takes you out of darkness and brings you into His marvelous light. Do you remember the first day you were saved? Don't ever forget your testimony. Tell it often and share it with as many as will listen.
Sing: Somebody ought to testify, Somebody ought to testify; for God I'll live, for God I'll die, somebody ought testify.
Thought for Today: Don't ever forget the day God brought you out of darkness.
