A NEW SONG - Monthly Devotion

It is our hope this New Song Bible study written by Pastor Salem will be a blessing to you.

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

One day, in Old Jerusalem, Jesus said to a scribe (a scribe was an expert in Old Testament Law),

“Thou are not far from the kingdom of God.”  Mark 12:34

Just look at that, this man was almost in the kingdom of God, almost saved, ever so close—but lost eternally!

Look at him:

 HE BELIEVED IN GOD, BUT WAS NOT SAVED. He knew there was but one God, he openly confessed that to Jesus, no question about it.  I have known people who think they are going to heaven because they believe in God.  James points out the fact that believing in God is no big deal because the Devil does and he is the son of perdition!  (James 2:19).  Only the fools believe there is no God.  (Psalm 14:1).  Just believing there is a God never saved a soul!  Believing in God is not enough, we must believe in Jesus!  (John 14:6).

  • HE KNEW HE WAS A SINNER, AND WAS NOT SAVED. For all of his religiosity he was not at peace with God, he was not saved.  He was searching and he came to Jesus for the answer.  Nicodemus did the same thing. (John 3:2). Both men knew there was a disconnect between them and God.  Before a person can be saved, he must confess he is a sinner and needs a Savior.  (Acts 16:30).
  • HE READ THE BIBLE, BUT WAS NOT SAVED. As a matter – of- fact, it was his profession to know the Bible backwards and forwards.  But, for all of that, he was not saved, he was near the kingdom but not in!  Just because you read the Bible does not mean you are going to heaven, you must accept Jesus!  (John 3:18).  Remember, the dirty, old Devil quoted Scripture!  (Matthew 4:6).
  • HE WENT TO CHURCH, BUT WAS NOT SAVED. He was in the temple every day!  He didn’t go just at Passover and Pentecost, he went daily.  If going to church saved a man, this scribe would have been in the kingdom a long time ago.  But going to church doesn’t make us a Christian any more than going into a garage make us a car.  I believe in going to church, but salvation comes only through accepting Jesus personally into our heart.  (Revelation 3:20).  I did that when I was 10 years old!
  • HE HELPED OTHERS, BUT WAS NOT SAVED. As a good Jew, this scribe would have obeyed the law to help the poor, (Psalm 40:1).  He would have given at least 10% of his income to God’s work.  But, he could have worked his head off and still gone to hell because nobody, and I mean nobody, enters the kingdom by works.  (Ephesians 2:8,9).  I pray to God that you are not counting on works to be saved.  (Isaiah 64:6).

 HE WAS SINCERE, BUT WAS NOT SAVED. I hear it over and over, if a person is just sincere, he will get to heaven.  The only problem was that sort of thinking is the fact that we can be sincerely wrong.  God clearly warns us that “there is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.  (Proverbs 16:25).  The broad road that leads to hell is filled with sincere people!  (Matthew 7:13,14).  Sincerity will never save you!

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY INTO THE KINGDOM, INTO SALVATION, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ.  (John 14:6).  We must personally ask Him to come into our heart, our life.  (John 1:12).  That is the only message the Christian Worship Hour has, simply, ask Jesus to come into your heart and cleanse you of all your sins.  Promise to follow Him as best you can, and be sure to tell others when you accept Jesus.  (John 5:24).

 And when you give, and pray, and tell others—you make this all possible.

In our Savior’s Love,

Pastor Salem

LETTERS FROM OUR VIEWERS

THANK YOU FOR WRITING…

In my time, I’ve learned that my Father saved me from a path I should not be going down.  I became closer to our Father by the help of Pastor Salem and his sermons on TV.  As I look back, my prayers were answered by my Father.  I would like to get a copy of “The Life of the Believer” book.

WYOMING

I treasure the book, “Tell Me a Story”, that was sent to me.  Every message Pastor Salem has written is so very much like his sermons…so easy to understand.  I am so deeply grateful to God for guiding me to listen & learn from Pastor Salem’s messages.

ARIZONA

Thank you for the plan to continue Pastor Salem’s sermons.  His honest scriptural teachings are timeless.  The Salvation message is fresh with every telling.  Our world needs even more to know of Jesus’ love and forgiveness.  Prayers for each and every one of you.

CALIFORNIA

I want to thank you for coming into my home every Sunday morning.  I just recently accepted Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior into my heart.  I was watching your services on TV when I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart and life!  Please send me some information on accepting Jesus Christ into my life!  God bless you all – A New Christian in Jesus Christ.

My wife and I have watched Pastor Salem for many, many years.  We love his down-home-straight-forward preaching.  We will miss him and the way he presented the Gospel.  Please continue his legacy of telling us the Truth.  We will be praying for your ministry.

My wife and I are grateful to the Lord for Pastor Salem and how he exalts our Lord and wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ.  Christian Worship Hour has been and is such a blessing from Heaven to my wife and I.  It is Bread from Heaven HOT off the alter of God’s throne.  It is so good to hear the simple teaching and preaching of the Word of God. We appreciate this ministry that God has given to this world.
