“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.” (1 Peter 1:1819) The Magic Moments of life are “Precious and Few”. The big fisherman knew this and that’s why he was given the words he wrote in his gospels. The most precious time for any man, women or child, is when they come to the realization that they are totally lost without the Soul-cleansing Blood of the Lamb. Have you ever heard this great old hymn:? “I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore, very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more. But, the Master of the sea, billows His will obey, from those waters lifted me, I’m saved today! (chorus) Love Lifted Me! Love Lifted Me! When nothing else could help, Love Lifted Me! LOVE LIFTED ME! LOVE LIFTED ME! WHEN NOTHING ELSE COULD HELP, LOVE LIFTED ME!” Born in SIN and totally set free, once and for all, eternity. Precious!
And that’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates. AMEN
