Sunday

Turn from evil and do good;

seek peace and pursue it.

 

David saw the retina specialist Friday afternoon.  David’s vision is very good, but the current issue is pressure in both eyes.  We’re thanking God for the vision improvement and praying the three medications he is using will get the pressure under control.  Thanks to all of you who have prayed for him and who ask about him when you see us.  We are very appreciative for the love you have shown us.

Susan Rimes continues to have back and arthritis issues. Pray she can get good mobility with minimum pain.

Please continue to pray for Debbie R. Miller and her family.

Please pray for Mike Catalaotto who has had a major stroke.  As you pray for him, please pray for his family.

Mrs. Margaret Callihan was at the church (wake) yesterday.  She is getting much stronger.  Her children are doing a good job of caring for her as her health continues to improve.

The service yesterday for Mrs. Kathryn Kuss was wonderful!  What a special, unique lady she was.  It was good to visit with all her family and hear some of them, the preachers, and Bernice Dickerson during the service.  “Miss” Kathryn was properly honored, but will be missed.

SUMMARY

You’ll likely find the second half of Leviticus less weird. You’ll read about all the different festivals Israel was to observe as a reminder of what God has done in their lives, as well as moral purity laws that are intended to set Israel and its priests apart from surrounding nations. Keep in mind, even though these laws aren’t as bloody as the sacrificial rituals, they are still exploring the same core ideas that you find in the first half of Leviticus. Chapters 1-16 lay out the rituals and symbols of God’s love and forgiveness for sin and defilement, while chapters 17-27 explore the new way of life the Israelites are to embrace (either turning away from sin, or avoiding it in the first place). These laws call Israel to a high degree of moral purity and social justice that were major steps forward in comparison to their Canaanite neighbors. As we jump into Numbers, we will begin with a great census as the Israelites mobilize for movement out from the shadow of Mt. Sinai.

For the word of the LORD is right and true;

he is faithful in all he does.

The LORD loves righteousness and justice;

the earth is full of his unfailing love.

~ Psalm 33:4-5 (NIV)~

“The Love of God”

 

Have a wonderful Lord’s Day.  Allow Him to be King today and every day.
