RGIII Stumbled, Fumbled, Recovered?
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

From Heisman to Cleveland. Sounds like Johnny Football. It's a short trip from the penthouse to the outhouse. Those of us who make mistakes in life, in chess, must play on carrying the burden of the consequences of our bad choices. No one is invincible, infallible, perfect.

It is written in the Bible and recorded in world history that the only perfect person to ever walk this earth, Lord Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ child born in a manger in Bethlehem, a carpenter-fisherman-shepherd, the king of kings, Son of the Living God, was crucified under Roman rule -- having committed no crime -- to save the world of it's sins... washing God's children in the blood of the lamb. On the third day, He arose from a certain excruciating physical death in public view, demonstrating life after death for all. His sacrifice as Lord and Savior of mankind fulfilled prophecy, one of hundreds of prophecies come true in the thousands of years spanning biblical text, proving again and again and again over centuries of time by numerous contributing authors that the Bible's words are true as prophecies come true. God's love, God's message is everlasting, unchanging, reliable as the sun rises every morning; His permanent promise rings true for all time's sake for all people of all creeds to heed. All YOU have to do is choose to follow Him. It's not an easy choice, but the right choice.

He knows you are not perfect. He knows everything about you. He knows the number of hairs upon your head! He is all knowing. He is everywhere all the time. He hears all. He sees all. He remembers all. He knew you before you were born. You cannot fool Him. He is wise and powerful beyond our understanding. He knows, and yet he awaits for You to choose Him. No matter where you have been, no matter what you have done, there is victory through Jesus Christ. Call upon Him for redemption, peace, eternal life.

Just don't try to strike up a bargain like it's gonna be Burger King and have it your way. We are to conform to God's standard, His expectations, not our own, not the fickle views of a bickering society. Your choice is to bow down, to serve God Almighty, the Creator, our Father in Heaven through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; not mammon, not money, not popularity, fame nor self-glorification. It's not a one-way street where He is to give you your greedy human wishes; it is a mutual relationship. "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven!" Talk to Him! Talk to Him! Talk to Him!
