There is NO Other Name

Please pray for our dear friends of many years. Three years ago, W (accompanied by his wonderful wife/my dear friend) preached our son's funeral. Tomorrow, we will be walking with them to bury W's brother, J.  This brother was a little sick and has hospitalized for slight pneumonia and dehydration on Monday.  On Wednesday a diagnosis of stage 4 small cell lung cancer was made.  The family was told that it was inoperable and untreatable.  By Wednesday evening, J was in Renal failure and passed away on Saturday morning. 

While J's sudden passing has left this family heartbroken, they grieve with a GREAT HOPE and with GREAT JOY! They know that J's faith for living and for dying rested solely in Jesus. What about those around you? Where is their faith? Where is their hope? Where is their joy?  Do they have a faith they can live by?  More importantly, do they have a faith they can die by?  Have they experienced the saving power of the freely given forgiveness of sin that was bought by the blood of Jesus? If not, please care enough to share the good news with them today. If you don't know how to do that, please let me know.  I will help you.   If you haven't experienced this merciful love of the one and ONLY Savior yourself, I can share with you today how that forgiveness can be yours. Today is the day of Salvation.

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."   Acts 4:12 KJV
