FRANKENSTEIN, WHAT AM I CREATING?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
Job 17:9 The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou
also be tempted.
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
I. WE ARE A SUM TOTAL OF WHAT OUR MENIAL DAILY CHOICES ARE.

Seems we can understand the sum total in Mathematics, but not the daily spiritual sum totals?
B. A man was walking toward the death chambers of the Florida Prison.
A reporter asked him for a comment.
He turned and said: I AM WHAT I AM BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT I CHOOSE TO BE.
What a powerful comment this man made?
II. SO WHAT? THIS A FACT! BUT SO WHAT?
Can we change facts? Why or why not?

C. Satan challenged God to create another man.
God said that would be easy, you go first Satan.
Satan kneeled down and started molding dirt, and God stopped him.
That is my dirt, you have to make your own.

Only God has absolute creative powers.

IV. GOD GIVES YOU LIFE, 60 MINUTES AN HOUR, 1440 MINUTES A DAY, 24 HOURS A DAY, 168 HOURS A WEEK, 8736 HOURS A YEAR --- GOD’S GIFT TO YOU IS TIME.
WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR TIME CAN BECOME YOUR GIFT BACK TO GOD?

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
V. WITH A CHECKING ACCOUNT, YOU MUST HAVE DEPOSITED ENOUGH TO COVER THE CHECK.
