39Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”
2 Chronicles 16:7 (NLT)
7At that time Hanani the seer came to King Asa and told him, “Because you have put your trust in the king of Aram instead of in the Lord your God, you missed your chance to destroy the army of the king of Aram.
Folks, I need to apologize for two incorrect scripture references that went out in the past week. One was sent on Friday the tenth and the other was sent this morning the 14th. Both were taken from Matthew Chapter One but were marked as Chapter 2. The verse number was correct in both instances, the Chapter was actually Chapter 1 and not Chapter 2. I am resending both verses at this time with the appropriate reference.
Matthew 1:17 (sent out wrong as Matthew 2:17 on 12-10-2010)
17Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah.
Matthew 1:18 (sent out wrong as Matthew 2:18 on 12-14-2010)
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.
Good Morning People.
10I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
2 Timothy 1:9 (NLT)
9For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 2:13 (NLT)
13Therefore, we never stop thanking God that when you received his message from us, you didn’t think of our words as mere human ideas. You accepted what we said as the very word of God—which, of course, it is. And this word continues to work in you who believe.
Note: I will be leaving the country today and not returning until October 17th. I will have limited email access. Courtney will send the morning verse in my absence.
Hope all are well.
