Our Savior

our-savior” For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, so that whoever believes in Him should not be perish, but have everlasting life. ”  For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but in order that the world might be saved through Him.  He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is already condemned because he has not believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.  And this is the verdict, that light has come into the world, and people have loved darkness more than light because their deeds were wicked.  For every one who practices evil, hates the light and keeps away from the light, in order that his activities  might not be exposed.  But one who practices the truth wants light on it. So that it wll be perfectly clear that he is working in union with God.

To God be the Glory!

Palm Sunday


Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! For in our union with Christ he has blessed us by giving us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world.  Even before the world was made, God has already chosen us to be his through our union with Christ, so that we would be holy and without fault before him.

Because of his love,  God had already decided that through Jesus Christ he would make us his sons – this was his pleasure and purpose.  Let us praise God for his glorious grace, for the free gift he gave us in his dear Son!  For by the sacrificial death of Christ we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven.  How great is the grace of God, which he gave to us in such large measure!

In all his wisdom and insight God did what he had purposed and made known to us the secret plan he had already decided to complete by means of Christ .  This plan, which God will complete when the time is right, is to bring all creation together, everything in heaven and on earth with Christ as head.

All things are done according to God’s plan and decision;  and God chose us to be his own people in union with Christ because of his own purpose , based on what he had decided from the very beginning.  Let us then, who were the first to hope in Christ, praise God’s glory!

Throw all your anxiety

prayers5A certain amount of anxiety is to be expected when endure great stress.  But at least some of this concern may be allayed if we bear in mind these word of Jesus:  “Stop being anxious about your souls as to what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your bodies as to what you will wear…..Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and (God’s) righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you.”  (Matt. 6:25, 33, 34)  It is proper to make effort to solve a problem.  After we have done what we can, however, worry cannot take the place of prayer.  (Ps. 37:5)  Paul wrote:  “Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petition be made known to God; and the peace of God that excel all though will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” -Phil. 4:6,7. w07 7/15 3:15,16
