Back To The Future

                As I read the scriptures in Hebrews 13:7-11 quoted below, a verse in Revelation comes immediately to my mind:

(Revelation 1:8)  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Our Lord Jesus has always been and will always be.  He is the Christ pre-incarnate and the Christ incarnate.  He has not changed, and He will not change.  He is our Past, our Present, and our Future.
              Knowing who Christ is, is key in the way we live our lives.  We, by accepting Jesus as our Saviour, have purchased our Future.  We did not purchase it with works; we purchased it by our Faith, just as Abraham did.   From the Cross, Jesus paid the bill with His blood, consequently, we have a “blood bought” Future.
              My question is where are we in our Future?  Have we slid off the road towards our “Future” dallying in sin, playing in the world, and not concerning ourselves with our Future?
              Get “Back To The Future,” get yourself back on the road that Christ put you on when you were Saved.  Only you can reverse your trend, and get yourself “Back To Your Future.”  God teaches us in:

(Romans 12:1-2)  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  (2)  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

You are the one, the only one who can renew “your” mind.  You do it by getting under the Word of God, by reading His Word, and by learning to pray “again.”

Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

              You may have to change friends, and you may have to get into another social circle.  What is more important to you, getting “Back To The Future,” or your present social life?
              So what are you going to do?                           

Bro. John R. E Chastain

Hebrews 13:7-11  Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.  (8)  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  (9)  Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.  (10)  We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.  (11)  For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
