March 27th, 2005


In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead [men]. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.  (Matthew 28:1-8)

Thought For Today

Ignoring Dangers

An airliner returned to the terminal because the pilot did not like the sound of the engines. As it taxied a second time for take-off, one nervous passenger inquired if the problem had been solved. "Yes, it has," smiled the stewardess. "We changed pilots."

When the Titanic went down, it was steaming full ahead. There had been a wide variety of warnings, but the danger signals were all ignored. The bands were playing, the passengers were dancing, and everyone was oblivious to disaster. Their collision course with destiny is much like our own. We are having too much fun to be disturbed, and a change of course seems out of the question. The stage and cast are set for distress of incredible proportions.

When the band on the Titanic changed its tune to "Nearer My God to Thee," it was already too late. God help us to strike up the band a bit sooner!

Thought For Today

The Rich Employer

Peter Eldersveld tells of a rich Christian who had a large company of employees, and many of them owed him money. He was constantly trying to teach them something about Christianity, and one day he hit upon a plan. He posted a notice for his employees to see that said, "All those who will come to my office between eleven and twelve o'clock on Thursday morning to present an honest statement of their debts will have them canceled at once." The debtors read the notice with a great deal of skepticism, and on Thursday morning, although they gathered in the street in front of his office, not one of them went to the door. Instead they gossiped and complained about their employer, and ridiculed the notice he had posted. They said it didn't make sense.

But finally, at 11:45, one man jumped forward, dashed up the steps into the office, and presented his statement. "Why are you here?" the rich man asked him. "Because you promised to cancel the debts of all those who would come as you instructed," the other replied. "And do you believe the promise?" "Yes, I do." "Why do you believe it?" persisted the employer. "Because, although it was too much for me to understand, I know that you are a good man who would not deceive anyone." The rich man took the bill and marked it "Paid in full," at which time the poor man, overcome, cried out, "I knew it! I told them so! They said it couldn't be true, and now I'm going out to show them." "Wait," said his benefactor, "it's not quite twelve o'clock. The others are not entitled to any special proof of my sincerity." When the clock struck twelve, the forgiven debtor ran out waving his receipt in the face of his fellows. With a mad rush they made for the door, but it was too late. The door was locked.

ROMANS 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
