Readers: Sorry we’re a little late today: My Father-in-Law, Reggie B

came down with Double Pneumonia and heart-problems late Friday and my wife &

I travelled to the hospital to see him.  We Covet your Prayers for his speedy recovery.

We stopped by this AM (Saturday) and he was looking a lot better than he did last

night when we left him. He is 86-years-young, is a Devout Christian as is his beautiful wife,

my Mother-in-Law Doris, for the last 28-years! 🙂

More Than A Creed Or A Code

BIBLE MEDITATION: 
“…and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Are Christians fools for believing in Jesus? Are we serving a false God? If you go to the tomb of

Confucius, you’ll find it’s occupied. If you go to the tomb of Buddha, you’ll find it’s occupied.

If you go to the tomb of Jesus, you’ll find it empty. He is a risen Savior.  Now that’s very

important, because, you can take Confucius out of Confucianism and still have Confucianism,

and you can take Buddha out of Buddhism and still have Buddhism. But you cannot take

Jesus Christ out of Christianity and still have Christianity because Christianity is not a code.

It’s not a creed. It’s not a cause. It is Christ Himself.

ACTION POINT:
You have a hope that the world needs to hear about. Who can you share that hope with today?
