Pastor Russell wrote several books. One of his books has a chapter on “Lack of Trust.” Is there anyone out there you can trust? Has the saying “trust no one” come true in our generation. From the televangelist to the pastor, the gray haired deacon…is there anyone out there telling you the truth? Do you trust God? Stop and think for a moment. Have you sincerely and completely placed your confidence in God? Are you convinced beyond any shadow of doubt that God has your best interest at heart? You should because He told you that He did.
John 14:1-3: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” KJV
John 3:16-18 “16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” KJV
