"A Rose Among the Thorns"
"A Rose Among the Thorns”
Sung by: The Inspirations
WHILE STROLLING THROUGH THE FIELDS OF TIME
Mark 16:15-16 – "And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” Paul gives this principle in 1 Corinthians 3:6, "I planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase." God's Word will either lead to repentance or cause a sinner to rebel and go further into sin. It depends on the individual. Isaiah tells us, "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it" (Isaiah 55:11). The Word will always have an effect on hearts. Sometimes sinners may seem callous on the outside, but be struggling on the inside. It often takes years for a person to come to repentance, confession and baptism. God's Word still works.
"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” (Galatians 6:9). Let us plant the seed of the Word in the hearts of man. There will always be those who obey. Teach the truth, that a sinner may become a "beautiful rose."
