Lets get right to it.
Dear friends of ours lost their long time dog (16 years) yesterday, he was an awesome dog, the most gentle big black dog there ever was!
Here’s Maxx and I enjoying a meal together.
Speaking of our friends, Today is Lisa Vallee’s Birthday!

92-year-old robbed and gives the gospel.
Pauline Jacobi 92-year-old grandmother shows no fear when she tells the man, “As quick as you hurt me, I’ll go to heaven and you’ll go to hell.” As he listens to her witness God’s forgiveness to him, tears begin to roll down his face. Her story is an amazing message on the power of your faith.

One of the best sermons I listened to in 2014. In this sermon, primarily from the Gospel of John, Kevin DeYoung argues that Scripture’s inerrancy, authority, and sufficiency provides a foundation for both the truth of the gospel and our confidence in evangelism.

John MacArthur on studying and preaching the Word of God. “We are waiters, not chefs. We don’t cook the meal. We get it to the table without messing it up.”
Christians and Social Media
“Studies have shown that overuse or wrong motives in social media participation can breed narcissism. When we rely on social media sites primarily to promote ourselves or draw attention to ourselves, it is time to take a step back. On the other hand, there are definitely positive aspects of social networking. For the Christian, social media sites can be an enormously productive mission field. Reconnecting with old friends and increasing our sphere of influence can lead to evangelistic opportunities unavailable elsewhere. Social media allows us to reenter the daily lives of people we may have lost contact with and open up new avenues for sharing Christ. As such, we can influence the views of others by what we post, bringing encouragement and spiritual guidance to others and using friends lists or Facebook status updates to pray regularly for friends and their needs”.
Finally this from Don Fortner.
“Faith in Christ is not the cause of the new birth, but the result”.
and that’s a beautiful thing!
