Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 August 25

Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death. (Proverbs 7:24-27)

Today’s Morsel:  The world has painted a pretty picture for so many.  Satan has camouflaged his deception very well.  And so many have been destroyed by her.  So many are blind to Satan’s ways.  So many are weeping and crying because what they thought was good, they now realize was evil all along.  So many who thought someone was the perfect one, now realize that it was all a show and cover up.  So many who have left the church for the world to gain, now find that it’s a path and road that they cannot seem to find the strength to walk home from.  Satan’s grip and chains have them bound.  This world is as a harlot.  A one-night stay has so easily trapped many and placed them on the road to hell.  Therefore, you children of men, consider what I say, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever” (1 John 2:15-17).  See the world for what it is, a pathway that leads to death.  Stay on the road to glory.

Sing: I have decided to follow Jesus! I have decided to follow Jesus! I have decided to follow Jesus! No turning back, no turning back!

Thought For Today: You can take this old world but give me Jesus.
