SCRIPTURE

For we live by believing and not by seeing.

~2 Corinthians 5:7, NLT

QUOTE

Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.

~Augustine

my thoughts red

Paul said, “We live by faith, not sight.” The Gnostics pretended to relate to God on the basis of knowledge but this is contrary to what the scriptures teach. Hebrews 11:6 reads, “It is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.” Faith is not a new way, it is the only way. Abraham was saved by faith just like you and I. He looked forward in faith to Calvary and we look back in faith. In this life, we rely on faith and hope; you cannot possibly please Christ or follow Him without these two. Without faith we lose our confidence and assurance; without hope we give way to despair. Make no mistake my friend, we desperately need them now but in heaven our faith and hope gives way to sight.

  • I have some GOOD NEWS: Gary Garner was much better yesterday. He has been able to eat for last two days but still no explanation for what is going on. Bufford made a profession of faith since my first visit. I don’t know when but the last time I tried to lead him in a sinners prayer, he said, “I’ve done it already” and wow what a change. Yesterday he told me that if he gets able, he is coming to Danville to be baptized. What about that folks! Third: we got our new van yesterday just in time for the youth to go to camp. It is unbelievable! You just look at it today: it is nice. God is good!
  • Count Down to Alaska–2 days. June has been packing for a week and I bought me a new cap for the trip today.
  • Regular Schedule Sunday beginning with Deacon’s Meeting at 8:30.
  • TRUSTEES will decide Sunday about parking lot and we are probably going to annual contract on lawn and shrubs.
  • I was hoping to have some plans for the play ground before we left but it may be after we get back, I am running out of time.
  • Mother would have been 100 hundred today.
