TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

 MISSING THE MARK   [1]

          On his final shot in the 50-meter three-position rifle final on Sunday, August 22, 2004, Matt Emmons needed only to get near the bullís eye to win the gold medal.  He took careful aim, fired and hit the bullís eye.  Unfortunately, it was the wrong target.  In the Bible, the idea of missing the mark is called SIN.  It is used in Romans 3:23 to describe humanityís problems: ďFor ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.Ē  Godís glory is the bullís eye, but you and I continue to fall short of it.  (more next week)

          Watch In Search of the Lord's Way , Sunday at 8:30 AM on Massillon Cable channel 22 and at 10:30 AM on Warner Cable channel 23.  If you have access to the internet, please visit our website:  www.masschurchofchrist.org
