I’ll Be In Trouble When I Get Home

Scripture:- 1 Corinthians 7:1-17
Topic:- I’ll Be In Trouble When I Get Home

Every night after dinner, Harry took off for the local watering hole.

He would spend the whole evening there and always arrive home, well inebriated, around midnight each night.

He usually had trouble getting his key to fit the keyhole and couldn’t get the door open.

And, every time this happened, his wife would go to the door and let him in.

Then, she would proceed to yell and scream at him for his constant nights out and coming home in a drunken state.

But, Harry still continued his nightly routine.

One day, the distraught wife was talking to a friend about her husband’s behaviour.

The friend listened and suggested, “Why don’t you treat him a little differently when he comes home?

Instead of berating him, why don’t you give him some loving words and welcome him home with a kiss?

Then, he might change his ways.

The wife thought that this might be a good idea.

That night, Harry took off again after dinner.

And, at about midnight, he arrived home in his usual condition.

His wife heard him at the door. She quickly opened it and let Harry in.

Instead of berating him as she had always done, this time she took his arm and led him into the living room.

She sat Harry down in an easy chair, put his feet up on the footstool, and took his shoes off.

Then, she went behind him and started to cuddle him a little.

After a short while, she whispered to Harry, “It’s pretty late, dear. I think we should go upstairs to bed now, don’t you think?

Harry replied in his inebriated state, Heck, I guess we might as well.

I’ll be in trouble when I get home anyway!

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to understand and love my spouse henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
