THIS is Eternal Life!
Two weeks ago we saw that as God led the people of Israel out of Egypt He gave to US pictures of present and future realities. These are more than simple historical events that took place more than 3,000 years ago! They hold a message about God and His plan to save those who believe in Him from the coming judgment upon mankind and planet earth. They call us who believe in Jesus Christ to live with purpose and with hope, knowing that our God is for us, not against us, and that by His love for us all things WILL work for our good as we trust in Him. Today we see more pictures pointing to Christ and to the freedom that all who know Him as Savior and Lord experience even now, as we live in this world! We are ONE with the Father, Son and Spirit and we are one with each other and all who believe in Jesus, as we celebrate in the Lord’s Supper. God has made His covenant with us, as we witness in Baptism and Dedication, and it is our privilege to raise our children to know, to love and to serve Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. To God be the glory! Great things He HAS done, IS doing and WILL DO!!
