Fall Remains Standing - November 17, 2007

My mind was on showing more pictures of our ocean trip, so here are two more. I admire the passion and perseverance of the surfers, always looking for that next big wave. If knocked down, they get up again. This is how we are to live our Christian life. I am looking for something bigger and better than the waves.

Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

He is on top of it now. He had caught the wave and it carries him forward.

1 Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1 Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Yesterdays experience builds faith, but we should not be living in the past. I picked up the camera for a visit to the local ponds and was delighted to see new images. The word of God should be new each day. That which we have heard should build faith, yet we always need the fresh word, the fresh bread from heaven.

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

John 6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
John 6:50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Heavenly Blue morning glories

Psa 97:6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
Psa 97:7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.
Psa 97:8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.
Psa 97:9 For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

The Maple trees are still bursting with color.

The leaves appear as numerous and varied as the stars. How beautiful are the works of our Lord's hands. His wisdom and truth is the tree of life.

Prov 3:18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
Prov 3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

I love the white egret, so meek and quiet, yet always watchful.

Mat 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
