Job 39:19-25

Well, I found my new favorite Bible verse! It is about . . . what else? Horses! So I figured that this was appropriate to put on this blog. A blog about God and the Bible and Marci and myself. Part of me is my love of horses so I simply had to share this with you! Prepare to fall in love with the horse!

Job 39:19-25 ESV
“Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrifying. He paws in the valley and exults in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons. He laughs at fear and is not dismayed; he does not turn back from the sword. Upon him rattle the quiver, the flashing spear, and the javelin. With fierceness and rage he swallows the ground; he cannot stand still at the sound of the trumpet. When the trumpet sounds, he says ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle from afar, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

Are you celebrating your TRUE citizenship?

Hello, everyone! May you all have a wonderful day celebrating our freedom. Just as our American freedom was bought by blood and war, so is our Christian liberty. Jesus purchased our freedom from eternal death by pouring out his life in exchange for ours even though he had never done anything wrong! Think of John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” God, the Creator of the Universe loved us so much, even when we had turned our backs on Him and become evil, that to save us from eternal separation from Him, He sent His only Son to die our death. To free us! And that is the best freedom of all! Although I am truly grateful for my freedom as an American citizen, I am even more thankful for my liberty where my true citizenship is—heaven! Thank you, Jesus, that I am free and forgiven despite my many sins! Thank you that I have my true citizenship in heaven and that you sent your perfect son to give me this freedom from Satan's grasp!
