What does the bible tell us about the armor of God?

Ephesians 6:10-20
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

When you look at Verse 10, it tells us to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. We know how powerful our Savior is and we can rest in that.

Verse 11 tells us to cloth ourselves in the whole armor of God so that we can stand against these principalities!

When you look at Verse 12, it clearly tells me that we are in a spiritual battle with the devil. The Lord has equipped us to fight the battle against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. He has given us the aromor of God. He has given us the full armor of God to battle against these forces and to defeat them in our daily walk here in the foreign world.

Verse 13 tells us that we need the full armor on to protect ourselves against these evils.

Verse 14 tells us to stand therefore, having your loins grit about with truth, and having the breastplate of righteouness; Jesus said to His enemies "Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." Saints are to Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thself, and them that hear thee (Timothy 4;16) Verse 14 also speaks of putting on the breast plate of righteouness. A breastplate shields a Warrior from death, it protects the critical organs. All a saint has to do is cry out to God and He is there. The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry" Psalm 34:15. The righteous cry, and the Lord hearth, and delivereth them out of their troubles. Is that amazing we have the Lord as our Breastplate shield, He promise us to shield us and protect us, He is always a cry away. Psalm 5:12 5:12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as [with] a shield. Praise God!

Verse 15 speaks about how our feet shod with preparation of the gospel in peace. I think what God is telling us to walk with care, satan will do everything to put obstacles in our way and we need to walk carefully bringing the gospel of grace to a dying world.

Verse 16 tells us the shield of faith is that satan can not attack us if we keep in the faith. Trust the Lord in all things.

Verse 17 tells us to keep our minds protected and focused on why we are here. The spirit of sword speaks of the word of God. It is a great spiritual weapon. You can not fight truth! The word of God is all powerful, all Holy!

Verse 18 speaks of Praying always with all the supplication in the Spirit, which is the word of God. Prayer is such a powerful part of the armor, prayer is an intimate time between the Lord and His Saints. He hears are needs, our pain, our joy. Pray at all times in the Spirit. This does not mean every second. But it does mean in all things. True prayer is asking God what He wants.

Verse 19 Pauls epistles tells us that prayer like most essentials are to help bring spiritual victory and maturity. Verse 19 says Whenever I open my mouth, words may be given to me . Here Pauls utter dependance is in Christ, in the sovereign God who called Him as He called all of us.

Verse 20 tells us to be bold and proclain the Gospel . I think prayer is one of the strongest tools because we are putting our faith in God in the battle. We are relying on the word of God when it says the battle has been won.

Truly, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us; for we can give thanks before the fight is done. Yes, even in the thickest of the battle we can look up to Christ, and cry—Thanks to God! The moment a soul groaning under corruption rests the eye on the Lord Jesus, that moment his groans are changed into songs of praise. In Christ you discover a fountain to wash away the guilt of all your sins. In Christ you discover grace sufficient for you—grace to hold you up to the end—and a sure promise that sin shall soon be rooted out altogether. "Fear not, I have redeemed thee. I have called thee by My name; thou are Mine." Ah, this turns our groans into songs of praise. How often a Psalm begins with groans, and ends with praises! This is the daily experience of all the Lord's people. Is it yours? Try yourselves by this. If you know not the believer's song of praise, you will never cast your crowns with them at the feet of the Lamb. Dear believers, be content to glory in your infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon you.

The more and more I am realizing how important our walk is on this earth, until our Lord calls us home. How important it is how we live our lives before a dying world, a world that should not be somewhere we call "home". I want so much to be the reflection of love and humility Jesus was. Through good times, through rough times I want to be thankful for what He did for me. What ever I do I want it to bring glory to Him and Him alone and that is not easy to do at times living in the flesh still. I sometimes wonder if when I do good, is it to bring Glory to God or to myself. God surely knows!

Prov. 16:2 All the ways of a man [are] clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

Being content is sometimes hard, but possible with Christ.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!"

"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever!"

In our walk what we do, reflects on Christ. The world is watching every step we make forward or backward..mostly backward. The world is watching us, waiting on us to sin and then they point to who we are following, Jesus. What shall we do then, take up our cross and follow in His footsteps. March on and follow His path instead of going off on our own. We owe Him that much.
Let us all be able to sing those wonderful words "It is well with my Soul" and mean it!

I attended a concert this weekend and one of the Hymn that was sung was "It is Well With My Soul". On our way home I kept thinking about the words It is well with my soul. I knew that not all is well with my soul and that I need to get closer to the Lord and His word. This morning as I was typing out this blog, I came across a site that shared a bit about the man that wrote this God honoring song. His name was Horatio G. Spafford. He was born in 1873. The words to this hymn was written after two major traumas in Spafford's life. The first was the Great Chicago Fire of October 1871, which ruined him financially. Shortly after, while crossing the Atlantic, all four of Spafford's daughters died in a collision with another ship. Spafford's wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telegram: "SAVED ALONE." Several weeks later, as Spafford's own ship passed near the spot where his daughters died, he was inspired to write these words the music was by Philip P. Bliss. Bliss originally named the tune "Ville de Havre" after the ship on which Spafford's four girls perished, the SS Ville de Havre. Ironically, Bliss himself died in a tragic train wreck shortly after writing this music.

Now here was a dear man that lost so much, yet after all that he was inspired to write these words of contentment. Those word can only come from God.

When peace, like a river,
attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot,
Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
It is well, with my soul,

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet,
though trials should come,
Let this blessed assurance control,
That Christ has regarded
my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood
for my soul.
It is well, with my soul,

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well, with my soul,

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.
It is well, with my soul,It is well, with my soul,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Lord I want to be able to sing "It Is Well With My Soul" and mean it from the bottom of my heart.

I pray this for all my dear brothers and sisters.

When I read things in the paper or hear something on the News that upsets me, I will write to the editor of our local New's Paper. Sometimes they print my letters, other times they don't.

The past week I have been listening to the News and reading the paper concerning Pope Benedict XVI's comments made about the Prophet Muammad and the reaction of the Muslim faith. First, it amazes me how angry Muslims get, when they keep trying to convince the world that they are a faith of Peace, now I have yet to see anything they do that tells me it is a faith of Peace? They burn dummys that look like the Pope or President Bush.

I watch the news and see women and children cheering on these cruel acts. Just this past week a nun was murdered because of what the Pope had quoted,even after an apology was given.

As I have listened and watched all this, I decided to write a letter to our Local News Paper and here it is....

What about outrage when Jesus scorned?

I am writing about how the Muslim faith reacted when Pope Benedict XVI cited the words of a Byzantine emperor who characterized some of the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, Islam's founder, as "evil and inhuman." They took to the streets in such anger.

Why is it when Jesus Christ's name is lambasted in the most cruel way, the Muslim faith does not react at all? Is Jesus not a prophet to them also?
I wonder how they'll answer this?

God hath work to do in this world; and to desert it because of its difficulties and entanglements, is to cast off His authority. It is not enough that we be just, that we be righteous, and walk with God in holiness; but we must also serve our generation, as David did before he fell asleep. God hath a work to do; and not to help Him is to oppose Him.

A few years ago my husband had the privilege to preach on the subject of "Humility". He shared a story of a Chinese man that was put in jail because of his faith in Christ. He was put in the hole to work. Every day he would have to shovel the excrements all day long. He did this daily for all the time he spent in prison without complaint. A few years after he was released from this hell hole, he ran into one the guards from the prison. The guard asked him in bewilderment "How is it you spent all that time in that slop and come out of there everyday with a content look on your face and never complained?" The man answered, " Every morning when the machines were turned on, it would be the time I would be able to recite verses from the Bible out loud and sing the hymns I had learned and fellowship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." "It was those times while I was in prision I cherished the most!"

What a servant of Christ! He worked in such a lowely job and found joy in it! Jesus was a fine example of Servant hood.

(John 13:3-5 NIV) 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that He had come from God; and that He was returning to God. 4 so He got up from the meal and, and took off His outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.

He got down on His knees to wash the disciple's feet, when in fact they should have been on their knees with thanksgiving. Jesus is our greatest example of servanthood, the One that should have been served, yet was the servant.

Are we willing to wash each others feet? Are we willing to be in Jail and praise the Lord at the same time?

We are to serve God because we want to, not because we have to, not half-heartly but whole heartly. How far are we willing to go, to serve Christ. When we look at Paul and how He suffered in the name of Christ and the many Christian martyrs who have laid down their lives for Christ.

Christians brothers and sisters we have a cross to carry through our lives. Jesus promised us that our burdens will be light. We all will suffer some sort of humility when we stand up for our faith, but we will have the Holy Spirit there assuring us we are doing right. I think as the years go by, it will get harder and harder to be a servant for Christ. As Satan realizes the battle is lost, he will make it tougher for those that are true servants of Christ. The cost will not make a difference compared to the prize because we know the price is paid in full! When you look at the words "It is finished", we already know it is "Paid in Full"

Eph. 6:10 "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints...."

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
forward into battle see his banners go!
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before.

God bless all the servants of God!

All He endured for the Elect

John 15:13, "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends" (NASB). The KJV says, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

It brings me to tears reading what He suffered so that we could be forgiven......

A cross is placed on the ground. The one being crucified is thrown backwards with his shoulders against the wood. His wrists are felt for depressions at the front of the wrists. A heavy square wrought-iron nail is driven through the wrist and deep into the wood. It is repeated on the other wirst, being careful not to pull the arms too tightly, but to allow flexibility and movement. The patibulum is then lifted in place at the top of the stipes and the titulus reading Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews is nailed in place.

The left foot is pressed backward against the right foot, and with both feet extended, toes down, a nail is driven through the arch of each, leaving the knees moderately flexed. The victim is now crucified. As Heslowly sags down with more weight on the nails in the wrists, excruciating, fiery pain shoots along the fingers and up the arms to explode in the brain - the nails in the wrists are putting pressure on themedian nerves. As He pushes Himself upward to avoid this wrenching torment, He places His full weight on the nail through His feet. Again there is the searing agony of the the tearing through the nerves between the metatarsal bones of the feet.At this point, another phenomenon occurs. As the arms fatigue, greatwaves of cramps sweep over the muscles, knotting them in deep, relentless,throbbing pain. With these cramps comes the inability to push Himselfupward. Hanging by His arms, the pectoral muscles are paralyzed and theintercostal muscles are unable to act. Air can be drawn into the lungs,but cannot be exhaled. Jesus fights to raise Himself in order to get evenone short breath. Finally carbon dioxide builds up in the lungs and inthe blood stream and the cramps partially subside. Spasmodically, He isable to push Himself upward to exhale and bring in the life-giving oxygen.

It was undoubtedly during these periods that He uttered the seven shortsentences which are recorded:The first, looking down at the Roman soldiers throwing dice for Hisseamless garment, Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.

The second, to the penitent thief, Today thou shalt be with me inParadise.The fourth cry is from the beginning of the 22nd Psalm, My God, my God,why hast thou forsaken me?Hours of this limitless pain, cycles of twisting joint- rending cramps,intermittent partial asphyxiation, searing pain as tissue is torn from Hislacerated back as He moves up and down against the rough timber. Thenanother agony begins. A deep crushing pain deep in the chest as thepericardium slowly fills with serum and begins to compress the heart.Let us remember again the 22nd Psalm (the 14th verse), I am poured outlike water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax, it ismelted in the midst of my bowels. It is now almost over - the loss oftissue fluids has reached a critical level - the compressed heart isstruggling to pump heavy, thick, sluggish blood into the tissue - thetortured lungs are making a frantic effort to draw in small gulps of air.The markedly dehydrated tissues send their flood of stimuli to the brain.Jesus gasps His fifth cry, I thirst.Lut us remember another verse from the prophetic 22nd Psalm: My strengthis dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thouhas brought me into the dust of death.A sponge soaked in Posca, the cheap, sour wine which is the staple drinkof the Roman legionnaires, is lifted to His lips. He apparently does nottake any of the liquid. The body of Jesus is now in extremis and He canfeel the chill of death creeping through His tissues. This realizationbrings out His sixth words - possibly little more than a tortured whisper.It is finished.His mission of atonement has been completed. Finally He can allow hisbody to die.With one last surge of strength, he once again presses His torn feetagainst the nail, straightens His legs, takes a deeper breath, and uttersHis seventh and last cry, Father into thy hands I commit my spirit.

I read this piece by a man named Wil Pound and I wanted to share it with others. It clearly shows the depravity of man.

George Whitfield, the eighteenth century evangelist, was correct when he said, “If the unregenerate man could enter heaven, he would be so unhappy in heaven, that he would ask God to let him run down to hell for shelter.”
How could the enemies of God sit down at the banquet of the Lamb of God?
Universalism wants us to bury our heads in the sand.
The carnal mind is enmity against God all the time. So why would such a person ever want to be in God’s holy presence? It is against everything God is for in His universe. It sets the world system and all it teaches in opposition to the LORD God.
The carnal mind is a “depraved spirit that is set on those things which are not proper” (Romans 1:28). How would you know one if you saw it? Romans 1:29-32 says, “Being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them."
It is a dreadful picture of human depravity. The apostle then declared, "Therefore you have no excuse, everyone of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who practice such things" (Romans 2:1-2).
There is a day coming when “God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus” (v. 16). It is not because we do not deserve it. The Bible testifies that we are all guilty. “But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who will render to each person according to his deeds” (Romans 2:5-6).
After a detailed presentation of our sins against us in Romans chapter three, the apostle Paul concludes, "But glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For there is no partiality with God" (Romans 2:10-11) "You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God?" (Romans 2:23).
How many of us have not wished in the depths of our hearts, “Would to God these sins were not forbidden!” Spurgeon asked, “Who among us has not been so foolish as to desire that there were no God?”
But neither solution makes the problem go away. We still stand guilty before God. “Every carnal mind in the world is at enmity against God.”
The carnal mind declares that by our very nature we are the child of evil. What part of man was affected by the fall? The entire man, every part of him – every power, every passion is at enmity with God. You may say, “Oh, Wil, I am not really that bad.” God says, “The heart is deceitful above all things.” It is desperately wicked.
Why would any carnal person want to be in the holy presence of a righteous God? It would mean to be guilty and condemned twenty-four hours a day. We would never be able to escape His holy, hot wrath. Our sense of guilt would always be a state of awareness.
The only solution to the desperate plight of man is to have a new mind and a new heart. If we have not experienced a change of heart, our carnal mind will always be at enmity against God.
Our thoughts, our decisions, our behaviors all testify that we deserve God’s holy wrath. Every person born into this world deserves God’s wrath and damnation.
Because we are guilty sinners, God must provide the solution. Since the carnal mind is at enmity with God, salvation cannot be by any merit on our part. It must be by God’s grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. If we are at enmity with God, what merit can we have? How can we deserve anything from the person we hate? Therefore, God must step in and rescue us by His grace.
The Spirit of God must lay His hand on you and renew your heart or there is no chance of your entering into heaven.
Jesus Christ can make peace through His blood. If the Spirit of God has convinced you of your sin as you read this, you can become a new creature, a new person, with a new heart if you will ask Jesus Christ to be your Savior.
By our physical birth we are at enmity with God, but by the new birth we are made His friend. Our nature must be changed if we are to enter into God’s holy presence. Here is the most precious promise for every sinner to believe. "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life" (John 3:14-15).

I was watching Fox News yesterday afternoon, and David Asman for FOX News happened to be interviewing Rick Warren. Mr. Warren is now promoting his new project of changing the world! He spoke on the AIDS Epidemic and how churches should reach out more to those fighting this disease. It was like no churches were reaching out now or ever and we needed him to tell the churches to do so. The more and more I hear about Mr. Warren, I wonder who he does all this for "The Glory Of God"....or the glory of himself?

I hear too many of his statements starting and ending with "I" or Saddleback. Fox News described him like this "He's an evangelical superstar. His runaway best seller has transformed lives" He is a Superstar? He is transforming lives? Isn't that Gods job? I guess what made me blog on Mr. Warren this morning was a few of his last words. When I die, I just want 4 small words put on my tombstone "At Least He Tried". Now where is the Glory of God in those 4 small words?

Here is a good site to go to concerning Rick Warren and "The Purpose Drive Movement..

It is an eye opener. We as christians need to be more discerning and listen more closely to what is being preached in the name of Our Risen Savior.

To God Be the Glory,

Question: What do you think about this quote?

"... Satan works to blend together his system with God's system, because when you blend error with truth you have destroyed the truth. You no longer have a mixture of truth and error; you have error. Just like when you take poison and put it in a glass of milk -- you not only have a glass of milk and poison, you have a glass of poison, because the poison has corrupted the good milk. So it is with Satan's system when it is mixed-in, even with Biblical things, it becomes a corrupting influence and you no longer have truth and error -- you have error. And the truth is even corrupted by the error.

As I read it, it made me think about how Churches today are watering down the Gospel to reach the lost. They are taking out what is important, so they do not offend. When they do this, are they really leading people down the right path? To me it is just the same as putting a small drop of poison into a glass a milk, you poison it. When you add or take away from God's word, what are you doing? You are poisoning it, right? Are we ready to compomise the truth of God's Word and at the sake of what?

If you can, I would appreciate your thoughts on this?

One hundred worshipers meeting together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be were they to become "unity" conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God

Just this past week, on Wednesday Night my husband Jim and I got together with a group of other believers and had true fellowship with one another. My husband joins a group of men once a month for breakfast, and they also get together every few weeks for coffee. They call themselves "The Ole Geezers"

On Wednesday Night the men invited their wives to a Barbecue at Dave and Roma-lynn's home. This dear couple are two of the kindest people Jim and I have ever met. They complement one another. They give so much of their love and time and themselves, they are true servants. They run a Senior's Home, and you know the residents just love them so much.

Any way back to the barbecue, it was such a wonderful time of friendship, love and laughter. We all brought our own meat and then either a salad or a desert. We all filled up on the delicious meal and then sat back for some music and some sharing. I have to say, Baptists know how to eat LOL....and cook.

David loves music, I believe his whole family is musical. I think they have at least 5 pianos throughout their home. David is a very talented Pianist and has a lovely voice! The first part of the music was another couple Cliff and Dawn and David. Cliff on the violin, Dawn on the Organ and David on the Piano and the rest of us had either playing Bells, Tamborine and even Castanets. We sang many old time hymns which were nice to hear. A lot of churches don't play the old time hymns as much and I find them much more biblical then the songs today. We had genuine fun together. Dawn, the dear lady playing the Organ has had health problems in the past year and yet here she was at the front playing for us and her husband Cliff right beside her playing the violin so wonderfully.

After the music was over, My husband shared a few words on the subject of "Fellowship" It was a good message on how fellowship is just not mere friendship it is a relationship based on Unity and Like-mindedness. It is based on a relationship of not just rejoicing together but also mourning together. It is based on acountability, we are accountable to one another. It is a communion that is uncommon to the lost. Who else but Saints can rejoice in life and in death. We can fellowship in Christ alone and be content.

John 15:12-19 "This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13 "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.

True friendship that leads to true fellowship, is when trials come into ours lives, a friend will walk with you though it. A true friend, will be someone that will look you in the eye and tell you did wrong. A true friend will be with you through good times and bad times.

Proverbs 17:17 17:17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity

(Rom 12:15 NRSV) Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.

Prov 27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

So as I look back at last Wednesday, and think about David and Roma-lynn, Cliff and Dawn, Ron and Sue, Jack and Velma, Norm and Amelia, Dario and Dolcie, David and Pat, John and Jim I thank the Lord for such wonderful Brothers and Sisters in the Lord. I thank the Lord that my husband has these men that love the Lord with all their hearts, for true fellowship, for accountability and for love for one another. God wants this for us all, He wants the Saints to fellowship and grow together. He wants the world to see the love we have for one another. Our fellowship and Unity should only be based on Christ and Christ alone.

PS We missed Al and Barb, John and Lura and Sarto as they could not attend
