WHICH KINGDOM FOR YOU?
Dear Snyder's Church Family and Friends,
We continue our Journey with Jesus to Jerusalem this Sunday as we read from St. Luke 16: 19 - 31
and our theme is "Rich Man AND Lazarus!"
We will look at and decide which Kingdom we will choose!
I heard about a Sunday School teacher that told his class about the story of the rich man and Lazarus. He highlighted the good end of Lazarus and the bad end of the rich man. He pointed out how one man went to hell and the other man went to heaven. He also pointed out how rich one man was and how poor the other man was. After the teacher taught his lesson he said to the class, "Now which would you rather be...the rich man or Lazarus?" One boy raised his hand and said,
"Well, I'd like to be the rich man when I'm alive, and Lazarus when I'm dead."
Well, isn't that what we all wish, but you have to decide which kingdom you are going to be a part of on this earth. You've got to decide what you are going to surrender your life to on this earth. you've got to decide before you leave this earth where you are going to spend eternity after you leave this earth. Whatever decision you make, when you die you will with for all eternity.
I hope you will be with us on our Journey this coming Sunday morning. You will be welcomed and truly blessed. May you also be truly blessed today and may you also truly be a blessing to others today!
God loves you and so do we.
Blessings, Pastor Bill Pipp
