My holiday. ( Matthew 7 v 16 )
One of the things that pleased me on holiday, I had
opportunity to speak to people about Christ . First there was
the man who picked us up from the airport ,he really was
not interested. Next was a lady in a shop that was a mission
full of Roman Catholic religious items .I heard Christian
songs being sung, one of my favourite was being played,
called, 'I can only imagine ', it is about heaven ,and arriving
there. It gave me an opportunity to talk about going to heaven
I asked was she going ?,which led on ,to making it clear that
it is the work of Christ that saves, and that alone. I explained
that works are a very important evidence that we are saved.
It is only Christ and His sacrificial death, that ,and that alone
that saves .
Not the labours of my hands
Can fulfil Thy laws demands;
Could my zeal no respite know
Could my tears for ever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save , and Thou alone.
( Words.. A. M. Toplady )
