Acts 13, 26

1.  The “word,” or message is “sent”–not from man, though, sent by him, but from God.  As the Amazon could not flow from an island; so such a word of life could not come from man.  It is an inspired–God-given–message.  It concerns man’s spiritual state & destiny.  Man repeats it under divine influence and power of the Spirit.

2.  Its control is “salvation.”

(1)  This is man’s great need; and

(2)  God’s concern for us.

(3)  It is a present salvation of pardon.  “Peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.”  (Romans 14, 17)

(4)  It is an eternal Salvation of final deliverance and bliss.  He will perfect His work in us if we are faithful.

3.  It is sent to “you.”  It is an intensely personal matter.  You are urged to accept it–not to make light of it, to treat it as a small matter.  God moves mightily to help you.

Will you not accept it?  Do you dare neglect it?

GEORGE WASHINGTON BARRETT
