Special Prayer Request: I want to thank all of you who have been praying for my Aunt, LaVerne Collins. She returned to the Nursing Home here in Louisville last Tuesday. She has had 4 dialysis treatments in the hospital and 2 more since she has returned to the Nursing Home. The dialysis treatments are working, it seems. She is improving in many areas; but still has some health problems. We are hoping that sometime in the future she can get off the 24/7 oxygen. We don't know now whether she will be able to come home, but we covet your prayers. As I mentioned last Tuesday, we are having to Private Pay (pay the cost out of pocket.) We anticipate being able to do this for about 4 months, then apply for Medicaid.
Great News: The e-mail newsletter that went out last Tuesday is the most sucesful one I have sent out in regards to the number of you all opening the e-mail and then clicking on the links. I send out, at the present, 80 e-mails and 39 (48%) opened it. Praise the Lord! I am told that 30% is a good number. So, I hope you will continue to open it, click on the various links. Please tell others about this resource. I hope and pray that this newsletter and its contents will assist you on your journey as you "grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus!"
Do We Resent The Grace of God? Steve Higginbotham, in an audio sermon, tells of preaching on the Grace of God at South Green. An individual in congregation had not been living for the Lord at all; was not a Christian. This man, in his 50′s I think received word that He had inoperable cancer and only a short time to live. He then decided to obey the Gospel. He was very faithful but lived only 2 months and died. Read the Rest of the article.
Just Say No! The Apostle Paul, in Titus 2:11-14, tells his readers how to live in expectation of the return of the Lord Jesus! We are instructed in Tit 2:12 to “deny ungodliness and worldly lusts.” We must say NO! to the attractions of the “world.” The hymn writer wrote: “The world all about me has now no allure. I’ll put Jesus first in my life. In all that I say, in all that I do, throughout the world of toil and strife, by day and by night, through trust in His might, I’ll put Jesus first in my life.” Read Rest of the Article.
