Our prayers are with the people in Nepal who are part of the devastation and rescue efforts. We encourage you to support them in your prayers and gifts if you can. But in this world we're promised hardship and troubles. So how can you know you're ready to face these trials when they come? Knowing that we are forgiven is the doorway to stepping into the abundant life Jesus Christ offers. Romans 8:33-34 "Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us."
- Romans 11:21 states, "For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either." How are we to understand this?
- Doris comments about the source of evil. Isaiah 45:6-7
- Mac reminds us that Jesus addressed the source of death and the important thing is know where you stand with God.
