When Elvis Presley was popular in the mid-fifties,
girls would swoon at the mention of his name. But
Jesus’ name is much more popular than any human
name, because people don’t faint at the name of
Jesus – they “walk and leap, and praise God. How
about you? (Acts 3:8). So too, God’s word says,
“For every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue
shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall
give account of himself to God” (Romans 14:11-12).
Are you ready for that great and fearful day?
We know nothing of love
until we meet Jesus!
“I have esteemed the words of his mouth more
than my necessary (daily) food” (Job 23:12). It
is better to eat God’s cake than Satan’s cookies.
Job said that he esteemed (respected) God’s
words. It is one thing to respect His words, and
another thing to obey and follow them. It is the
better of wisdom to listen to Him without getting
lippy and rebellious at the things He tells us to
do. But if you insist upon having it your way –
have at it, for there will come a day in which you
will regret eating Satan’s cupcakes in hell rather
than God’s prime rib in heaven.
