My purpose in writing is to encourage you and assure you that the grace of God is with you no matter what happens.


God’s grace is always received, never achieved.

If you are hankering for a blessing, read I Peter in the NLT. Let me give you some examples:

  • I Peter 1:4–We have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.
  • I Peter 1:8–You love Him even though you have never seen Him. Though you do not see him now, you trust Him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy.
  • I Peter 1:19–He paid for you with the precious life blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.
  • I Peter 1:23–Your new life did not come from your earthy parents because the life they gave you will end in death.
  • I Peter 2:21–This suffering is all part of what God has called you to. Christ, who suffered for you, is our example. Follow in His steps.
  • I Peter 3:7–If you don’t treat your wife as you should, your prayers will not be heard. {Wow}
  • I Peter 3:12–The eyes of the LORD watch over those who do right, and His ears are open to their prayers.
  • I Peter 3:18–Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.
  • I Peter 4:9–Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.
  • I Peter 5:4–And when the Head Shepherd {Jesus} comes, your reward will be a never-ending share in His glory and honor.
  • I Peter 5:6–So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time He will lift you up in honor.
  • I Peter 5:7–Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

If you don’t find a verse in this list that rings your bell, your clapper is broke.

Pastors, I Peter 5:4 is for you. I cannot remember one moment of glory in my life. Perhaps I am forgetting. I know that I’ve never won a race, scored the winning TD, made the winning shot or been recognized for some outstanding achievement. I’ve never been the honoree in a ticker-tape parade but my day is coming. By His grace, I get a never ending share of Christ glory.

Revival Strip

  • We pray for STUDENTS today.
  • I never think in time but I saw a beautiful sight last night. Joe David lead a prayer meeting at a ball game and it was moving. We prayed for Kane. I hope someone got a pic. I checked on Kenny after the SAFE and he was sleeping.
  • The SENIOR ADULT LUNCHEON went great. If Chareles’ class had not turned out we would have been in trouble. We had 20 total but that counts the four workers but two were Seniors. We had 17 Seniors and three youth: Mandy, Floyd and Joe David. The rolls were awesome and so was the ham. Everything was delicious.
  • We will be visiting today; trying to get folks to the REVIVAL Sunday. Call a friend or fellow member that hasn’t been in a while.
  • SCHEDULE: Donuts, coffee and biscuits at 8:45, Deacons and wives meet at 9:00, LCBS at 9:15 and REVIVAL at 10:15 and 6:00.
