A new church begins with the promise of light. God is the creator of light. It was the first thing God created. In Jesus, he recreates light. Paul urges us to walk in the light in preparation for Jesus’ return.
In rather great detail our Lord describes events in the world that will signal that the end is near. It is quite obvious that most of these things are taking place at the present time. As Jesus said: “Straighten up!”
Moses did not exactly jump at the chance to serve the Lord. In fact he came up with no less than five excuses. But, when the Lord’s finger is pointed at you, there is no escaping. After receiving special powers, Moses went.

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.
