The Clock of Life

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hand will stop,
At late or early hour,
Nor is the only time you own;
Live, love, toil with a will
Place no faith in "tomorrow",
For the clock may then be still.
(~ Unknown)


Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
(KJV, Matthew 6:34)


Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for a little time,
and then vanisheth away.
(KJV, James 4:14)

Are YOU going to heaven?  The Bible tells us that we are all sinners; we were born into a carnal, sinful body.  Jesus Christ ~ the Almighty Creator and Son of God ~ came to earth from His throne to provide the world 'a means of escape' from their duty to pay for their sins.  He paid for their sins....with His life.  He was pure and sinless.  He offered Himself as a lamb of sacrifice to pay for every man's sins (if they would call upon Him to do so).  It is a FREE gift to YOU but it certainly was not cheap.  But like every gift, it must be received and our old ways repented.  If you would like to go to heaven, please DO NOT HESITATE to call us at Joy Baptist Church (319-372-8008 / 470-3999) for more information about what Jesus did for you and how quickly this day YOU can be saved and on your way to heaven!  We do not know the day or hour that Jesus will return for His saints, or even how many breaths we are allotted on this earth.  The scriptures tell us that our life is but a vapor.  Do not postpone this MAJOR decision.

Teen Campers & Parents - Everyone going to Teen Camp (in two weeks!) at the Bill Rice Ranch in Murfreesboro, TN ~ please meet at the piano following our Morning Worship Service.  Thanks!
