Sweet or Sour? A diehard atheist was once lecturing a group of people. His purpose was to convince them that they should not place their faith in God, and especially not believe in Jesus Christ. At the close of his speech, he invited people to ask him any questions they might have. In the audience was the town drunkard who had recently given his life to Christ. The former alcoholic came to the front, took out an orange, peeled it and ate it without making any comment. The irritated atheist asked him whether or not he had a question. After downing the last segment of orange, the former drunkard asked, "Was the orange I just ate sweet or sour?" Angrily, the speaker replied, "You idiot, how can I know whether the orange was sweet or sour? I never tasted it!"
To this the transformed man retorted, "And how then can you know anything at all about Jesus Christ?"
Taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8

Cleared of all Charges We have all seen or used those little electronic calculators. What happens when you make a mistake? You press the "clear" button and all of the information is wiped away. Then you can begin all over again. There is no more record of your mistake. It is cleared. Gone forever!
That's what happens to our sins when God forgives us. Through the blood of Jesus Christ, God clears away our sins and remembers them no more. We can begin all over again. "As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our sins from us." Ps 103:12 Will you put your trust in Jesus Christ today? There will never be a better time. As you read these words, God is calling you to turn to Him. God says to you, "Now is the accepted time. Now is the day of salvation." 2 Cor 6:2
Will you pray to God like this: "Father God, I'm glad You love me and gave Your Son to die for my sins. I ask You to please forgive my sins and save me from eternal hell through the Name of Jesus. As Christ gave His life for me, I now give my life to You. Thank You for saving me." Jesus said, "Whoever comes to Me, I will never drive away. My Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life." John 6:37, 40 God loves you!
He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death. He broke their chains in pieces, broke the gates of bronze and He cut the bars of iron in two. Psalm 107:14-16
