His Word Friday (October 14)

(1) What shall we say (to all this)? Are we to remain in sin in order that God's grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow?

(2) Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer?

(3) Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?

(4) We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious (power) of the Father, so that we too might (habitually) live and behave in newness of life.

(5) For if we have become one with Him by sharing a death like His, we shall also be (one with Him in sharing) His resurrection (by a new life lived for God).

(6) 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.

(7) For when a man dies, he is freed (loosed, delivered) from (th…

1. Have you ever been 'asked' to report for jury duty? Were you chosen to serve? If not, were you happy or disappointed?
A- I have been asked twice, in my life, to report for jury duty. I was not chosen to serve since I was pregnant both times. I am pleased with that.

2. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being very) how mechanically inclined are you? Give an example to back up your answer.
A- Are you kidding?! My hubs would say I'm a 1 on that scale. After all that is how we met. My cars were wrecks and I constantly needed his help to fix something. To this day I need his know-how. 

3. Beets-cabbage-cauliflower-butternut squash...of the four, which is your favorite fall vegetable?
A- Well I despise beets..yuk  However it's hard to pick from the other three. I like all three to varying degrees.

A- The best thing is to get off your pity-pot and go h…

GRACE

For I am not ashamed of the Gospel (good news) of Christ, for it is God's power working unto salvation (for deliverance from eternal death) to everyone who believes with a personal trust  and a confident surrender and firm reliance, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. (Romans 1: 16 AMP)

For what does the scripture say? Abraham believed in (trusted in) God, and it was credited to his account as righteousness (right living and right standing with God). (Romans 4: 3 AMP)

Therefore since we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith , let us (grasp the fact that we) have (the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy) peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). (Romans 5: 1 AMP)

Through Him we also have (our) access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God's favor) in which we (firmly and safely) stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing…

1. What's your favorite meal to serve on a chilly autumn evening? 
A- One of my favorites is a crockpot full of chili and a pot of rice to go with it.

2. Are you a creature of habit? Explain.
A- I would say I am a creature of habit. I brush my teeth after every meal, I cook our meals from recipes, I wake up early during the week and sleep late on weekends, I check my e-mail first thing in the morning, and I read my Bible in the morning.

3. What food product (no longer available) do you remember and miss from days gone by?
A- I would say Tang, I don't think it's available.


4. What's something you've lost that you've never been able to find? Any theories as to what happened?
A- I can't think of anything.

5. Zoo~circus~carnival...your favorite?
A- I say the zoo because I love watching the animals. However, I love carnival food. I'm not much of a circus girl.


6. What song makes…
