Good Weekend

We had a very nice weekend. It is always fun when the grandsons spend a couple of nights! On Saturday we went to my dads for his 85th birthday, I took him a rhubarb pie. He always enjoys getting baked goods. He was happy to see his great grandsons again. It was nice to just spend a little time with dad to celebrate, with his health we cherish each celebration.

On Sunday our pastor had a very good sermon on really thinking about what it means to us if we have Jesus as our personal Savior. Before salvation we were: 1. spiritually dead, sin separates us from God 2. spiritually sick, sin holds us captive 3. spiritually lost 4. spiritually unprotected, sin puts us in danger. Now we have: 1. new life, we have a new purpose 2. spiritual healing 3. spiritual direction 4. spiritual protection, God guides us. It was such a good reminder of what the Lord has done for us, do we really praise Him for all He has done in our lives.

John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. What a promise to know that nothing can take us from our Father once we are His child.

I Peter 1:5(a) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.

Have a great day!

Sounds like a great sermon. Even when the Christian life is at it's worst, it is still far better than anything the world has to offer.
