Alive in Him

Yesterday our coffee maker broke.  Didn’t think much about it until today.  Massive headache.  Two options.  Get another machine or suffer until the withdrawal effects wear off.  I chose the latter, which didn’t help my demeanor all day.

We read Acts 9:32-43 and talked about Peter healing Aeneas and Dorcas.  Peter went to Lydda and Joppa.  There he found a paralytic named Aeneas and in Joppa, there was a disciple named Dorcas who became sick and died.  Peter healed them by the power of the Lord.

We need to understand that God can heal us physically and spiritually.  As sinners, we are paralytic and dead in our sins.  Ephesians 2:1-2, “As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.”

Saul was blind and now he can see.

Aeneas was paralytic and now he can walk.

Dorcas was dead and is now alive.

We are blind, paralytic and dead in our sins and now we are forgiven and saved.

Who can save us?  Jesus.  The gospel is the power of God for salvation.  Romans 1:16, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes; first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.”  Salvation for everyone.

Mike had his time with the boys tonight talking to them about relationships.  As the children grow, we as parents have to continually walk with them and teach them what is right is God’s eyes.  We cannot allow the world, movies and others to teach our children.  It starts in the home with the parents.  God has given us the responsibility to raise the children and train them.  We need to be obedient and love the children.

All His,

Chad & Abby will be leaving Casa on November 6th their 3rd anniversary with us. They want more time with their children which I understand. There are no problems.

Sisters Estefani, Sandy & Kenny came here as toddlers & have decided it is time for the “real” world. I will miss them.

One of the baby dorm children is having hip surgery.

I helped Dr. Luis with the wiring & plumbing on the room in the visitor’s dorm.

I ministered to the girls tonight on relationships.

One of the best ways we can love our children is to pray for them. Children need to know that not only do we love them but Jesus loves them also. When you pray daily that your children will have a deep relationship with Jesus you prepare them spiritually for the life laid out before them.

Pray that your children will have a strong relationship with Jesus. Pray that the relationship will continue to grow throughout their lives. Pray that the Word will become the most valuable treasure they experience.

Pray that they will have great comfort in the love of Jesus. Pray that they will discover the purpose of their creation. Pray they will receive the gift of a godly life from Jesus.

Pray that your children will pray and listen for answers throughout their lives. Prayer is the greatest gift that you can teach your children. Once Jesus is in their heart it is all about speaking with Him daily.
