Sunday Faith Blog

A church amid the colorful Glory of God.  Would that all places of worship were this peaceful and Love and Truth could prevail.

"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  And they answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone.  How can you say, 'You will be made free'?"  Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave to sin.  And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.  Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."   John 8: 32-36

Have a wonderful Sunday....If it is peaceful and true, be grateful for your House of Worship.

About the fall foliage: God's paintbrush. I used to put up school bulletin boards with the header.

As a Believer, I claim the promise of the Truth and the freedom it gives us.

Z - Thanks for those beautiful words from John - but then any
Scripture for the Gospel is always exceedingly beautiful and poetic.


We took a trip through the Northeast in 1975 to see the fall color - and we were't disappointed.
Every time we would go around a curve in the road we would exclaim - This is so beautiful and Look at these colors.

But the best part is that we had with us a Nat. Geo. Mag and on the cover was a church just like your picture - telling where it was.

We were able to find that church and stand beside it and gaze out over the sea of color that the trees provided.


But that evening we were to regret that we hadn't called ahead for motel reservations and our spirits were slightly dampened by having to be turned away at each inn - especially with an active but sleepy 2 year old with us. :(


Thanks, Z.

Have a great Sunday. :-)

An important point in that passage is that we enslave ourselves. Learning that is a first step away from fear and victimhood.

Romans 6:6 Amplified Bible
We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument] of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin.

And this is the truth that shall set you free:

1 John 1:9 (NKJV)
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Truth and Grace in constant and obvious use in a church, one without gossip and rumor and secrecies, will also set you free.

"Truth and Grace in constant and obvious use in a church, one without gossip and rumor and secrecies, will also set you free."

When you find one truly free of such let me know. In 50 years I have yet to find such but I know one day I will find one but it wont be here on this earth.

How wonderful grace & truth are! Without them we're literally lost! Guess what? They both come from Jesus Christ! (Jn.1:17) The truth of grace is that we love because HE first loved us!! Thanksfor sharing this wonderful truth full of grace today! We need to remember it, especially in these times! BUT His grace & truth WILL prevail!

Z said...

Ticker; as in any place, it's a matter of degree...some are more Godly than others; and it starts at the top.

David, wonderful to see you here today!
"Especially in these times.." indeed.

Sonship is Salvation, for it has always come down to a relationship between a father and his son.

This was a pleasant "breather" for this Sunday evening. Thanks!
