Ã*&ÔONE STEPƒ

•1SA 20:1  And David fled from Naioth in Ramah, and came and said

before Jonathan, What have I done? what is mine iniquity? and

what is my sin before thy father, that he seeketh my life? 

1SA 20:2  And he said unto him, God forbid; thou shalt not die:

behold, my father will do nothing either great or small, but that

he will shew it me: and why should my father hide this thing from

me? it is not so. 

1SA 20:3  And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father

certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he

saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly

as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, ”there is but a step

between me and death•. 

It is not necessary to prove anything to our Lord, for he knows

us.  It is not necessary to prove anything to our family, for

they understand us.  It is not necessary to prove anything to our

friends, for they love us.  BUT OFTEN TIMES IT IS NECESSARY TO

PROVE SOMETHING TO OURSELVES.

As we come today, we come praying the prayer of the psalmist,

"Teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto

wisdom" (90:12).

BROTHER RUCKER WOULD HAVE ME TO TELL YOU A LOT OF THINGS TODAY...

BUT SINCE TIME WOULD NOT ALLOW....HE WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT THERE

IS ONLY ONE STEP.

DAVID REALIZED EARLY, AT ONE POINT IN HIS YOUNG MANHOOD, THAT

"THERE IS BUT A STEP BETWEEN ME AND DEATH (1SA 20.3).

1.  In our lives today we are too busy to come with the grips of

    reality that there is only one step between life and death...

    heaven and hell.

2.  Proverbs 27:1, reminds us that we know "not what a day may

    bring forth."

3.  Jesus warned, "Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the

    master of the house cometh"  (Mark 13:35).

We have a song that we sing sometimes: "Get Right with God and Do

it Now!  He will show you how. Down at the cross where He shed

His blood.  Get Right!  Get Right with God!

Brother Rucker died that you might hear this message today and be

SAVED.  The few times I would go by Auntee Zeb..He would always

respect the preacher and would enjoy his company and would share

his hope of coming to CHURCH one day.  ÜjÜŒ

4. James 4:14, realized that life "is even a vapour, that

appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away"

JESUS SAID, "I AM THE RESURRECTION, AND THE LIFE: HE THAT

BELIEVETH IN ME, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL HE LIVE: AND

WHOSOEVER LIVIETH AND BELIEVETH IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE"
