> In his book, Just A Preacher, Vance Havner wrote, “I remember when the Titanic
sank in 1912, it was the ship that was supposed to be unsinkable. The only
thing it ever did was sink. When it took off from England, all kinds of
passengers were aboard – millionaires, celebrities, people of moderate means,
and poor folks down in the steerage.

But a few hours later, when they put in
the list in the Cunard office in New York, it carried only two categories –
lost and saved. Tragedy had crossed out all other distinctions. Out on life’s
sea, there are scores of classifications. But when the voyage is over… all
such distinctions disappear and only two lists remain – lost or saved.1

In Acts 16:30, the Philippian jailor asked, “What must I do to be saved?” Rev.
Clovis G. Chappell, D.D., told his audience many are asking “What must I do to
be decent? What must I do to be respectable? These things are all right, but
they are not supreme. It is not ‘What must I do to get rich?’ Millions of us
are asking that question as if it were the one question of eternal importance.
But that is not the big question. The supreme question is: ‘What must I do to
be saved?’”

> In his biography, Colonel Harland Sanders, of KFC fame, says that he was
always a God-fearing man. In every venture, he gave God a tenth of the
profits. Yet he knew that if he died, God would not take him to heaven.
Worried, he traveled to Australia to a special church convention for the
answer. He didn’t find it. One day, Sanders was walking down a street in
Louisville, Kentucky, when there Rev. Waymon Rogers of Louisville’s Evangel
Tabernacle invited him to some evangelistic services. Several days later,
Sanders went. At age 79, he claimed the promises of Romans 10:9. He said,
“When I walked out of that church that night, I knew I was a different man.” 3

His fried chicken alone should have gotten him in to Heaven. But seriously, too many people are rescued from old scratch and then go right back to living the way they were.
receiving Jesus is the greatest feeling in the world; I had to change nearly every thing I had been doing, drinking, smoking, cussing, even the way I voted had to change.
It's a lifelong commitment when you accept Jesus.

BUGEYE. Yes brother it is. Sometimes I hear folks telling the same dirty jokes I used to tell, but they just aren't funny anymore. Then I wonder to myself, is that the way I sounded?? POWDERMAN. :eek: :eek:
