Hope is the thing with feathers
  That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune without the words,
        And never stops at all

Thought for the Day 4/22/2014



In his life, Christ is an example, showing us how to live;
in his death, he is a sacrifice, representing us;
in his resurrection, a conqueror, leading to victory;
in his ascension, a king to follow always, 
in his intercession, a high priest who understands.
.-Unknown 

If indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast,
not shifting from the hope of the gospel.

Thought for the Day 4/18/2014



If our greatest need had been information,
         God would have sent us an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology,
        God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money,
           God would have sent us an economist.
If our greatest need had been pleasure,
           God would have sent us an entertainer. 
But our greatest need was forgiveness,
                so God sent us a Savior
.-Roy Lessin  

Jesus is the one appointed by God to be the
        judge of the living and the dead.
             To him all the prophets bear witness that
                       everyone who believes in him receives
                                  forgiveness of sins, through His name.
-Acts 10:42-43 (ESV)
