Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Message – Words are amazing things. Last week we talked about the word, Nevertheless. Israel used it when, after describing the beauty and richness of the land of Canaan, they said, Nevertheless – and Nevertheless spelled their doom. If only they had believed God.
But that Nevertheless, so completely altered Israel’s history that the Holy Spirit refers to it again in Psalm 95:7-11 To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways: Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
The alternative to nevertheless, was Today! Yes, Today, hear His voice. Today follow Him. Today cast your whole future upon Him and do it Today. As surely as Israel’s Nevertheless spelled their doom and defeat – Today spells victory and blessing. Make it Today.
