On this last day of the year we will look at the “Master Plan”, also known as, “The Gospel for Dummies”. Step one: God calls us. Step two: We respond with yes or no. That’s it! God calls. We make a decision. Two simple steps -- it’s hard to mess that up. God didn’t come to earth and die on a cross for our sins so we could choose from “door 1, 2, or 3”. There is no “Plan B”. Jesus is the Plan. But if you insist on making it more complicated, here’s a three step plan that’s as simple as ABC. Admit you are a sinner who needs God. Believe in Christ as your Savior and Lord. Come to Him and Confess Him before others. Two simple steps! As simple as ABC! All that is required is a yes or no answer. How complicated is that? And if you haven’t made a decision, then you’ve made a decision. Choose life! Choose Jesus! Have a Happy New Year! -- Friar Tuck’s Word of the Day
