Blessings in Christ,
It surely has been a beautiful but trying week. As many of us are still reeling from the events that took place last Sunday evening in Las Vegas, we praise God for those who were willing to risk their own lives to help, and are continuing. I know our prayers have been in one accord all week. I must share what I read and was inspired by in Common Prayer this morning:
“Loving God, even in the midst of the world’s pain and sorrow, we can encounter Your joy. Show us that such joy comes when we are caught up in works of mercy and find ourselves unable to distinguish between our blessings and those of our brothers and sisters. Amen”
May we continue to pray that we will continue to see the fruit of the Gospel, the healing of the nations.
On Sunday I had shared about the “Word of God”, I promised a list of verses and not only will I list them, but we will go through some of them in our Saturday morning Bible Study at 9AM. Here is the list: Genesis 15:1 (Psalm 18:30; Proverbs 30:5-6); Exodus 9:18-30; Numbers 15:17-31; Deuteronomy 18:13=-22â€™ Deuteronomy 30:1-3, 14; 1 Samuel 3:1,7 (Amos 8:11); Psalm 12:6-7; Psalm 33:4-12; Psalm 119; Proverbs 30:5-6; Isaiah 55:8-11; Jeremiah 1:9-10; Matthew chapter 13; Mark chapter 7; John chapter 1 (cf. 1 John 1:1; Revelation 19:13); John chapter 8; John 17:14, 17; 2 Timothy 3:16-4:4; Titus 1:8-9; Hebrews 1:1; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:22-25
Also, this week I put out two videos for the series I have been doing on Facebook Live. In part 2 I dealt with the “atonement question”, and in part 3 I deal with the “ages”. You can now watch the videos on YouTube at the following links (part 2Â & 3):
