Monday’s Moments…

30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?" 31 "You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered, "and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?'" 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering." Mark 5:30-34

This is a great verse to remember that Jesus has authority over all of our life conditions, even when we may be confused with health issues or concerns. Like this woman, we need to worship Jesus with a holy fear (awe and humility), and faith. Dr. David Jeremiah said in his devotion today: “Healing is never a question of God’s ability, but of his purpose.”

Speaking of health and healing – Herb Generaux and Nadine Boman are in failing health. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

We’ll be wrapping up our Revelation Sermon Series over these next two weeks as we look at the New Heaven and New Earth of God’s eternal promise and timeline. It has been an interesting journey through Revelation, and I appreciate your faithful attendance and encouragement toward this study. Don’t miss the conclusion and description of this beautiful city, and to discover what will be missing. I hope to see you Sunday, and bring a friend to worship with you! :-)

As we’ve been studying through Revelation, and living life together in this fallen world – it’s good to be reminded that we have a Lord and Savior who offers us rest from the storms and burdens of life.
