Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Thank God It’s Friday?

What is the most wonderful day of your life?  Was it a never-to-be-forgotten day in your past?  Was it your wedding day?  Was it when the children were small and still living at home?  Was it the day you put your trust in Christ as Saviour and Lord?  As we grow older; we relish our happy memories and tend to want to  live in the past.

 

Your Future

If you are still young, perhaps you look forward to a wonderful day in your future.  Perhaps your graduation from high school or the day you get your driver’s license or the day you get married or have a baby.  If you are a Christian, you look forward to the day you meet Christ. Of course, that will be a wonderful day; but when that happens, we will no longer be in the realm of time,  but in eternity.

 

Today

No, the most wonderul day of your life on this earth is not a day in your past nor a day  in your future.  The most wonderful day of your life is TODAY. When you grasp this, it will be a life-changing paradigm for you. Listen to the Psalmist  sing about it in Psalm 118:23  “This is the day that the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

 

One of a Kind

Long  before you were born, over a period of many years God began bringing billions of minute circumstances together to create this day for you.  No one ever designed any work of art more intricately and more beautifully than the life God designed for you.  Your family background, your families’ financial situation, your home and possessions, your genetic structure with your strengths and weaknesses, your skills and abilities, your IQ, your talents, your educational background, every teacher you ever had, the testings and trials you’ve been through,  your geographic location, the age in which you live,  your friends and acquaintances, even your enemies; the opportunity to own your own Bible and be able to read it,  your opportunity to hear the Gospel and be saved,  your opportunity to be in a church where the Bible is preached, your willingness and desire to come to this web site and read these articles; all these God has brought together for your good. to bring you to this day of your life, TODAY!  Romans 8:28

 

Thank God it’s Friday?

The key to how you regard the day is up to you.  You can be optimistic ands rejoice  or you cn be pessimistic and complain.  You can pine for the past and be miserable today because this day does not measure up to your memories of the past;  or you can go through life always wishing and waiting for wonderful things to happen to you in the future and you can go on wishing for tomorrow until you die.  Many people go through life just waiting for tomorrow, just waiting for their ship to come in, just waiting for happiness and success to come their way.  They are never satisifed with today. They suffer throught their week, working at a job they hate.  The one thing they live for is summed up in that popular phrase, “Thank God, it’s Friday!”  What a terrible way to live life; waiting for Friday, waiting for the weekend, waiting for vacation and ultimately waiting for retirement.  How vain and empty is such a life!

 

Why is today so wonderful?

Because Jesus rose from the dead.  If Jesus did not rise from the dead, we Christians are of all people most miserable.  I Corinthians 15:9  Thank God, Jesus did die and rise from the dead.  Because He rose, we who have put our trust in Jesus to save us,  have also been raised  with Him to walk a new life.  Romans 6:4  One day we will rise bodily and be changed into His very likeness.  Philippians 3:20-21 His resurrection guarantees all this. I Corinthians 15:20  Because of this blessed hope we can sing with great joy and  satisfaction,  “This is the day that the Lord hath made; we will rejoce and be glad in it.”
