Dr. Lester Spencer, Senior Pastor at St. James United Methodist Church, and a very good friend, sent in a verse that is timely as we approach Easter Sunday.
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Woody Woodman, another good friend who attends church with Sara and me, sent in another timely verse:
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
Willa Carpenter, who serves as Human Resources Liaison for the firm, furnished a verse for this issue. Willa has been with us for 18 years and is a most valuable employee. She has been and continues to be an inspiration for all of us at Beasley Allen.
Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your hearts, All you who hope in the Lord.
Mike Bush, one of our firm’s investigators, also sent in a verse for this issue. Mike sends this verse each week to his son who is in school at the University of Alabama.
There was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me-to keep me from exalting myself!…I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.’
2 Corinthians 12:7-9
My good friend, John Kline, a professor at Troy University, reminds us that prayer is a very powerful tool. John furnished this verse which is a powerful statement.
The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
My long time and very good friends, John & Winnie Howard, long-time members of St. James United Methodist Church, sent in a verse especially for all married couples. John was a faithful member of a Sunday School class I taught for several years. He was our “Designated Prayer,” and in that capacity, wound up each session for us. By the way, the class was unofficially known as “the old codgers.”
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up
1 Cor. 13:4
Ben Locklar, a lawyer in our Personal Injury Section, has been studying the 103rd Psalm for a good while. He points out that this incredible piece of poetry, written by a man who loved the Lord and was inspired by the Holy Spirit, has a tremendous message for all of us. This man, King David, was not perfect. In fact, he stumbled badly as we all know during his lifetime. The fact that God forgave King David for his sins, means there is hope for all of us today.
The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
