Back to School!!!!

Is it that time already?  I feel like we just started the summer, but the cheese wagons are sending up the smoke signals through our community that its time to start back to school.  In all seriousness, I hope that all of you are having a good week back at school, and parents I hope you are not enjoying the fact that the kids are back in school.

Speaking of school, I’m really excited about what we have planned for reaching into the school this year.  I’m in the works of getting on the schedule to preach at FCA.  I want to plead with all of you to be in prayer for Eric Ramsey who will be  speaking in the school this year.  He is going to speak at the school on Monday September 21 at 9:45 am, then will be preaching at our church Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights starting at 6:30.  Be praying that God would open the hearts of the students @ Henryville.

Be praying for me as I am studying to preach the Word this Sunday.  I’m preaching in John 2:13-…. where Jesus makes a whip and cleans out the temple.  Wow!  I can’t even imagine what that must have been like.  What do you think those folks were thinking when He starting flipping over tables and crying out, “you’ve turned My Fathers house into a den for thieves.  They were thinking,”who does this guy think He is?”.  They asked, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?”.  Tear down this temple and in three days I will rebuild it.  It had to have been something that impressed them because after this story with have Nicodemus coming to Him saying, Rabbi we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do the signs that you do unless God be with Him.  I hope you will be here Sunday to hear God speak through His Word on this subject.  I know I can’t wait!

Wednesday night we looked at Psalms 16, and I keep thinking about the things we talked about.  We are His delight.  Hard to fathom that He would take delight in me.  I deserve much worse than a whip; yet In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the richness of His grace, which He lavished upon us. Ephesians 1:7-8a.  Did you hear that He lavishes upon us the richness of His grace.  Wow!! What a Savior, What a Savior.  Really!  Who is so great a God as our God?  Jesus asked Peter and the disciples, “Will you leave me too?  Peter says, why would we?  Where would we go? For you have the words of eternal life.  Why would any of us not cleave to Him with every ounce of our being?

Because of the Lamb,

Toby
