7 MONTHS AGO TODAY OUR LIVES WERE CHANGED FOREVER...NO MATTER WHAT THE OUTCOME, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A "BEFORE" AND AN "AFTER".
YOU CAN KNOW ABOUT JESUS, BUT NOT KNOW JESUS...YOU CAN HAVE HIM IN YOUR HAND BUT NOT IN YOUR HEART....THERE'S A DIFFERENCE.
Jesus approached and breaking the silence said to them, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days to the very close and consummation of the age. Matthew 28: 18-20
In my bible Joyce Meyer explains these verses like this: Have you ever wondered about your purpose in life? Know that you have been called by God to teach others about Who He is and what it means to follow Him. God gave you the authority to do so, and he has promised to not leave you on your own, but to be with you always. Ask God to show you where He wants you to go-to someone in your office, in your neighborhood, perhaps even in your own family-so that you can help others follow Him, too.
Thanks to everyone who has helped us out in any way the last 7 months. Sometimes you think, "all I have is $20 to send, or just my favorite bible verse, or a nice card, or a letter that starts out , "you don't know me, but"....or you've cooked dinner for my family, said a kind word to my kids, visited at the hospital, offered your home to me, and faithfully prayed for Rick. These things add up and have made all the difference to us. The body of Christ is a wonderful thing.
