Election Day

November 4, 2008

you decide And now behold the king whom you have chosen, for whom you have asked; behold, the LORD has set a king over you.

If you will fear the LORD and serve him and obey his voice and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, and if both you and the king who reigns over you will follow the LORD your God, it will be well. But if you will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then the hand of the LORD will be against you and your king.

Now therefore stand still and see this great thing that the LORD will do before your eyes.

(1 Samuel 12:13-16)

This Christmas

October 28, 2008

I know, I know. Halloween hasn’t yet even come and gone this year. But it’s not too early to start thinking about those Christmas budgets. As you consider your budget and gift giving this year, check out the Gospel for Asia Gift Catalogue. Unlike other gifts you probably will give and receive this year, a gift you give through the GFA Catalogue will be appreciated and still in use years from now.

GFA Christmas

“Each gift represents an opportunity for you to bless a Dalit (“Untouchable”) family, or a native missionary, with a tangible expression of Jesus’ love this Christmas season.

Hundreds of families in Asia were blessed with gifts from our Christmas catalog last year. And through the gifts they received, they also learned more about the life-changing love of Jesus.

As you make your list this Christmas season, may this be an opportunity to consider giving a gift that has the power to change lives forever!” (GFA)


Remembering the Fallen

May 26, 2008

Phil Trip 011In remembrance of  all those through whom freedom was gained and through whom freedom continues to be held.

Thank you father and mother, thank you son and daughter, thank you brother and sister; thank you for standing your post.

Day is done, gone the sun, from the hills, from the lake, from the skies.
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Go to sleep, peaceful sleep. May the soldier or sailor God keep on the land or the deep, Safe in sleep.

Love, good night, must thou go, when the day and the night need thee so?
All is well. Speedeth all to their rest.

Fades the light; and afar goeth day, and the stars shineth bright, fare thee well; Day has gone, Night is on.

Thanks and praise for our days, ‘neath the sun, ‘neath the stars, ‘neath the sky. As we go, this we know…

God is nigh.


The Resurrection

March 23, 2008

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”

So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. Then the disciples went back to Tomb their homes.

But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.”

Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher).

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'”

Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”–and that he had said these things to her.

On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.

Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

John 20:1-20
