  1. @sugarbear Love this heartfelt poem that you wrote for your cousin! Even though I didn't know him, I could tell it captured well the person that he was. Reading your description drew me in and even brought a smile to my face (being handy with tools and loving to sing loudly.) It is good to celebrate our loved ones who pass. It is our way of saying "Thank You Lord for the years we were able to enjoy these special people." You did a wonderful job of that in your poem. Scripture says to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. I join you in honoring his memory and grieving with you, my friend.May God comfort and strengthen you. I'm so sorry for your loss.
  2. @SisterActs2 Such great news! God is faithful. Praising the Lord along with you!
  3. @Omegaman 3.0 What is a trafficator?
  4. @Not me Thank you for this topic and the richness of truth in your post. I will be re-reading it several times over to savor it. I think that Romans 6 ties in with it and hope it will add to this thread (being a blessing to you and others.) Romans 6:1-11 Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ 6 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. 11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
  5. Yes. Scripture describes what Jesus did at the cross in other ways, too. "God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood--to be received by faith." (Romans 3:25) *His resurrection is a vital aspect of His finished work As Romans 5: says, "Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by *his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement." (Romans 5:9-11)

    @BK1110 You've got them, brother. I like your attitude. God has been showing me lately the importance of thanking Him in the midst of trials. And like you said, realizing it could always be worse and thanking Him that it isn't. “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
  7. @LeeGreenForest I commend you on this. I think it wise to be careful our wordings are backed by scripture. It's ideal to find a scripture with the exact wording. But other times, the concept is there even when the word is not. I'm quoting a Messianic passage (Isaiah 53:4-6) which foretold His crucifixion. You will see the word 'punishment' in there. "Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all." Hope this helps some.
  8. @Rebecca Pickles Thank you! Thank you, dear sister! So uplifting. Joyful tears welled up as I read it. It certainly ministered to me and put things into perspective. Now I am going to print it off and share it others I know who are in need of it. God bless you.
  9. @frienduff thaylordeWhat does it mean? German, right? Possibly my sister, but don't know Ich or liebe. I left you a question. So pick up with that when you return, okay?
  10. Sadly, there are many who do this in our modern day, too. As with Saul-in the name of God (religion that is over zealous and false)
  11. And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, --- --- still, and see the ---- of the LORD, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall -----------------
  12. Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." (Colossians 3:12)
