Friday night we went to the church surrounded by family and friends for Meredith’s baptism.  She’s been wanting to be baptized for years now and she finally decided that she would do it on her 12th birthday.  It was a beautiful evening.

Making pies for Papa

Making pies for Papa

Wednesday night we are having a guest speaker in class.  My mom is coming to class to share her life and how she has served God in different ways as she has gone through the stages of her life.  She has been a stay-at-home mom, an educator, a successful business woman, and a persistent teacher of God’s word.

You will be inspired by her life and encouraged by her love.  She continues to spread the word of God through Bible studies with people here in Searcy and with people on the other side of the world.

Almost any day of the year, I might hear her say, “It’s just too pretty to be inside.  I think I will work in the yard for just a little while.”  Two, four, or six hours later, she’ll come inside, wipe the sweat from her face and declare, “I just lost track of time.”

I hope you can come to Highway Wednesday and get to know my wonderful, precious mother.

 

Hope of Glory

cloud_in_the_sunlightIn an earlier post, I posed the question, “Do you have an answer for the hope that is in you?”.  (I Peter 3:15)  One of the comments asked for scriptures that would help us to articulate that hope we have in Christ. 

Here we go:

Colossians 1:27, “…Christ in you, the hope of glory.”  To know Christ is to know our hope.  How, then, do we know Christ?  We come to know Christ as he is revealed through Scripture, through his church, and through his co-heirs.  We also come to know him as we walk in the light as he is in the light. (I John 1:7)  We are being transformed into his likeness by the renewing of our mind.  (Romans 12:1-2)

Our hope is rooted in Christ.  We will be prepared to give an answer for our hope, when we know Christ.  The better and more intimately we know Christ, the better prepared we are to give an answer for our hope, which is Christ in us.  Paul addresses the importance of knowing Christ in Philippians 3:7-11.  He considers everything else rubbish.  

What do you think?  How do you come to know Christ?
