God's Word for Saturday, 6/24/17

What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole.

I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.

Isn't it great that the light at the end of the tunnel is God?

pastor,
please pray for the chaldean [assyrian] Christians being jailed here in youngstown.
their birth countries have charged that they are criminals and should be shipped overseas for prosecution.
i doubt that any of them are criminals except the crime in their birth countries is not being moslem.
we know they will be raped, otherwise tortured, sold into slavery and murdered if the usa government sends them overseas.
a judge has delayed the deportation but only God can save them from these political machinations.
thanks.

Absolutely, Vicki - great, and a great comfort. :)

Any time, Linda.

Deborah, done and done! This is one time when we might need an activist judge, with an actual sense of right and wrong, to block the deportation until truth can be ascertained.
