John Gibbons and Erich Armster, two of my favorite people, work for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and are located in Montgomery. John and Eric do a tremendous job in bringing young folks to the Lord. John, who serves as the Alabama FCA Director, sent in this verse.
And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Erick, who is the Area Urban Director for FCA in our area, sent in one of his favorite verses.
“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Peter 1:5-8.
I encourage all of our readers to get involved with the FCA in your hometowns. The FCA deals directly with young people in our schools. I know from first-hand experience that their involvement can pay great dividends for the young people. There is a tremendous need to reach out to young people and to make them aware of how Jesus can change their lives forever. The FCA does an excellent job of doing just that.
Arnold Mooney, a longtime friend from Birmingham, who is one of the biggest supporters of Auburn football around, sent in the following verse.
Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”
Kenneth Lougee, a lawyer with Sieglfried & Jensen, a very good law firm in Salt Lake City, Utah, sent in a verse for this issue. He says this verse is for all of the trial lawyers who operate in an area where their opposition is always well financed with unlimited trial support and resources available to them.
Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:
2 Chronicles 32: 7-8 (KJV)
My longtime friend Bill Fuller, a lawyer from Birmingham, sent in a verse for this issue. Bill, who specializes in elder-law, says this verse is a daily encouragement to him and others.
Blessed are those who seek Him with their whole heart!
Linda Rush, who attends St. James United Methodist Church with Sara and me, sent in two verses for this issue.
Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.
1 Peter 2:24
Linda says that by believing what Jesus accomplished for us on the cross, we receive protection, healing, deliverance and provision. The resurrection power that raised Jesus from death can be ours, allowing us to overcome any challenge or difficulty we may encounter. That’s most reassuring for all of us because we live in a very difficult time in world history.
I am also adding a verse for this issue that is most appropriate for any season. But it’s especially timely during this time of the year.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
