VerseD: 1 Peter 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

Give God all the praise you can for our salvation, paid for through Christ’s death and established through His resurrection!

This Sunday at Church: Send someone home from Church

I have attended churches with vans and ride ministries, even occasionally helping with them. I greatly appreciate our current congregation. There is one person in particular who struggles with a ride. Our friends/roommates used to give her a ride to church, but then a baby came along. Then I gave her a ride, but then I started the “Nothing New” adult Sunday school before regular service. Usually, someone gets her, and usually someone else gives her a ride home (sometimes even me!)
It makes me happy to attend/serve at a church that so regularly lives out what has been suggested in these posts!

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called
Ephesians 4:1, ESV

It is not enough to say you are a Christian. It takes more than simply going to church. It is a life change, and we should be growing in and showing love, respect, patience, and kindness to people while standing up for truth.

VerseD: Proverbs 10:19

When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.
Proverbs 10:19 ESV

We live in a society of blaming, shaming, and excusing (ourselves) without much thought or care for others.

Choose your words wisely. You are God’s image-bearer speaking to fellow image bearers.

VerseD: John 8:32

“and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
