We Must Remember

Matthew 10:27-29

 “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.  And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.  Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.

It was a terrible day.  Many of us watched the horror unfold on our television sets.  We wondered what would happen next.  Churches opened up their sanctuaries for corporate prayer but also to be available for the individuals asking spiritual questions.

Hebrews 13:7-9

I have to close this blog entry sooner than I would like.  It is probably for the best as I would ramble on like I often do!  Whatever our circumstances are whether they are the loss of a loved one, a prolonged illness, financial concerns, difficult family members, we can look beyond our present situation and trust in the never-changing, loving and sovereign Creator and our perfect and holy Father in Heaven!  As evangelist Ray Comfort would urge you....put your trust in Jesus....put Jesus on like you would a parachute!  Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us!
