The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. In this 111th Psalm we are given a thorough rundown of our relationship with the Lord. Let us never neglect the study of His Word.
Paul reminds young Timothy of the faith he was taught by his grandmother Lois and his mother Eunice. Paul says that people of faith are not timid, but courageous. Today we celebrate the faith taught by our ladies in the LWML.
Michael and his angels will fight the great dragon (Satan) and his angels. They will be hurled down to the earth. Because the Lord is almighty we are kept safe under his wings.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the one and only mediator between God and us. There is salvation in no one else. Through him, God wants all to be saved. We were equipped with this knowledge and we willingly and joyfully spread the Good News.
The problem with sheep is they like to wander. What makes it worse is that they have a nonexistent navigational system. They get lost a lot. Sounds familiar? – “Adam and Eve: here are the rules!” – “No, thanks. We’ll find our way through life ourselves.”
