Our Treasure!


John 1

nkjv

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

~

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

The LIGONIER STATEMENT on CHRISTOLOGY

We confess the mystery and wonder of God made flesh and rejoice in our great salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.

With the Father and the Holy Spirit, the Son created all things, sustains all things, and makes all things new. Truly God, He became truly man, two natures in one person.

He was born of the Virgin Mary and lived among us. Crucified, dead, and buried, He rose on the third day, ascended to heaven, and will come again in glory and judgment.

For us, He kept the Law, atoned for sin, and satisfied God’s wrath. He took our filthy rags and gave us His righteous robe.

He is our Prophet, Priest, and King, building His church, interceding for us, and reigning over all things.

Jesus Christ is Lord; we praise His holy Name forever.

Amen.


Amen!

For your Wednesday evening viewing fun – Greta

Greta the dog came into our lives as a rescued 4 month old chihuahua/dachshund mix whose papers said her owners did not want her and could not keep her. We’re glad she is with us. My sister Lu calls her a minx. Lu lives in a place where dogs are regularly abandoned. At least Greta was given up to a safe place, a good dog shelter.

Greta vocalizes a lot, runs a lot and leaps, loves children, tries to make up to cats, barks at anything with wheels. When she was very little, during a visit to my husband’s Dad, Greta had her picture taken by Dad’s wife Sally. Look at her scrawny neck – charming!

People love their animals, sadly sometimes more than other people. Animals, especially pets, have a lovely place in our life – gifts of joy from our amazing and glorious Creator!

Bless you all – Hi to Wally at Church Camp (have fun)!
