ASSURANCE: Sweet, sweet comfort!

Going Once, Twice! [John 3:3; 14:6]
In Minneapolis, Minnesota, a 79-year-old widower is offering to give his $375,000 estate to any church whose pastor can give him some answers about eternity. The Associated Press reports Clayton Goward isn’t on good terms with his children; so he is inviting clergy from a number of different churches to a forum on the afterlife. He hopes someone can enlighten him and make him feel better about facing eternity.

Sadly, not a few will be unable to do so. Many members of the clergy take people to an office in a building when they ought to take them to Jesus … only Jesus can give assurance concerning eternity, only the Holy Spirit can enlighten our souls.

One Hole You Can't Get Out Of! [John 14:6]
People in America have long had a love affair with their cars but none to compare with those who own an off-road vehicle; ORV clubs abound for really serious owners.

A member of one such club recently requested he be buried in his four-wheel drive truck because, as he put it, "I ain't never been in a hole it couldn't get me out of."

Well, that 4x4 ain't gonna get him outa hell, but Jesus can!
