Jack Hibbs (August-15-2022) Weekly Devotional: CHOOSE THE GOOD

 Luke 8:6, 11, 13 - “Some fell on rock; and as soon as it sprang up, it withered away because it lacked moisture… Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God… But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.”

These are the last days, the closing hours of the church age. Soon, and without warning, Jesus will suddenly appear. In the rapture, He will take all those awaiting His return. The Lord is preparing the church for this great event.  

God is purifying His people by separating the false from the true. 

We are living at a time when seemingly committed believers are turning their backs on the Word of God and the fellowship of His people to go after their own selfish lusts. What was once good and godly, worthy of defending, is now cast upon the selling block for any price.

The once-believing heart is now justifying its new position, blaming others to appease its own lost conscience. Many may go this route before the end comes, but tragically, some have chosen this path already.

Hear again what Jesus says, “They are the ones who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.” Knowing this, guard your heart this day, Christian. Choose what is right, not what is popular. Decide to do the good thing and not what is easy. See to it that your heart continues to believe, lest you, having once known the Word of God and the fellowship of His people, turn back to the world and your former lifestyle.

    Dear Pastor Jack,
    I want to tell you that you are one of the few pastors I know who preach the Word faithfully whether the subject is popular or not. I listen and/or read your encouraging words on an almost daily basis. My husband of 62 years passed into glory on May 11, 2022 and I miss him desperately. Your words have often encouraged me and kept me from falling into this pit of unbelievable sadness. Please remain faithful to our Lord and Savior and continue to preach His Word without compromise. Soon we will meet the Lord Jesus in the air. Maranatha!
