“A Prayer Of Thanks For Being Rescued”

A Daily Prayer

Praying man Merciful Father, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Our dwelling place is not found in the kingdom of this world but in Your spiritual kingdom where our life saving rescue took place as Jesus died on the cross on our behalf. Because of His sacrificial death You have delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of Your beloved Son in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of our sins. There is no greater or more lasting rescue that changes the direction of our lives here on earth and also the direction of our eternal destiny in the life hereafter. We will thank and praise You for our life transforming rescue for all of eternity. Amen.

The LORD will indeed give what is good,
    and our land will yield its harvest.
Righteousness goes before him
    and prepares the way for his steps.

(Psalm 85:10-13, NIV)

Repeal and Replace

Scott Knowlton's Blog

Repeal and replace would be considered a trigger phrase in the United States today.  Most people who pay any attention naturally think about the arguments over the US healthcare system.  I like for my blog posts to be relevant, so I take everyday phrases, events, or illustrations and turn our thoughts toward Jesus.  I understand that as I do this I sometimes risk losing some readers because they are so opinionated about certain things.  This is probably one of them.  But if you will hang with me, this is not about healthcare.  It’s about “repeal and replace”.

This morning I listened to a Matt Chandler sermon.  He said that in our world, God is in the process of deconstructing the way the world is and reconstructing it the way He made it.  I would expound on that observation by arguing that on a more personal level, we must understand…
