Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Smokey BBQ's, warm sunshine, inviting smiles, cool shades--it's Spring fun at Alaska Bible College.
I think God likes a good party. in the law, A TENTH OF THE TITHE WAS TO BE RESERVED FOR A PARTY. in the new testament, jesus' first miracle surrounded the festivities of a jewish wedding. and jesus leaves earth with promise of a great feast to come!
maybe there's something to enjoying life that brings us back to why we are here in the first place. animals bask in the sunshine, forget about the hunt, and splash in the water just for fun. Maybe the crown jewel of GOd's creation can too.
to be together, in the lord, is good.
Thanks Damien for the pictures of US!
