Gems in the book of Romans
After the two and a half chapters of exposition of the sinful human nature, Paul turns to the good news of the Gospel. Up to this point, Paul has shown that even following the law cannot spare us from being judged by God for our sins. He will now turn to the “father” of Israel’s nation and the “father” of the Christians - Abraham. For the next section of this book, Paul emphasized the good news that salvation is by faith in Christ. From condemned and no hope, we now have both hope and righteousness. In Christ, we were made righteous in God’s sight. Paul also introduces the redemption that Jesus provided when He offered Himself as the price paid to the Father to appease His holy wrath. By His blood, we have been saved. It is now up to us to honor the death of Jesus by living holy. John said this way: “All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure” (1John 3:3).
A short message to ponder on… In the book of Colossians, 15, verse 1 we read that the Son is the image of the invisible God. Keeping this metaphor in mind…did we ever notice our children copy something that we do, or express in words something that we usually say? Above all, us parents…are we serious in our spiritual walk? Our children are observing us in every stage of their life. Parents what are your thoughts, when you voice them….are they God’s thoughts? What are our words? Do they give glory to God, especially when we are angry do we express our anger but at the same time, not sinning? Our decisions and attitudes, reflect the fruit of the Spirit? Because eventually our children will portray also our spiritual life. Shall we pray as the Bible teaches us? We must pray for us parents and our dear children. We must share Christianity in our lives, especially to our loving children. Remember we shall lead by example... Children will follow. Blessings
ZOOM MEETINGS Some members are still not abiding with ZOOM meetings rules. Consequently, as from September 13, 2020, those allowed to enter will: 1. meet to have a valid reason for not coming to church. 2. abide with the rules previously given. Zoom is to be considered as a need, not a substitution for the attendance in church and there will be no more compromise. Therefore, those who feel that they have a valid reason, not to attend church, will need to contact Lawrence or Joe from the evening before, or as early as possible in the morning. If not, they will not be allowed in.

WOL Marriage Devotion
Tenderness is an attribute that every couple needs to sustain their marriage. Initially, it is the physical attraction that usually pulls two lovers together. Some call it “euphoric love.” Euphoric love is very strong at the beginning of a relationship. It is a physical driving force. However, this physical force changes as the years go by. It comes and goes and diminishes unless the couple works at keeping these feeling active. Life offers several challenges for euphoric love to keep growing. Several life-
changing matters, challenge this. Pregnancy, babyhood, and later menopause can become temporary obstacles to fulfilling love life. Couples can find themselves feeling annoyed with everything the spouse says or does. However, the Holy Spirit gave us the antinode. His love poured in our hearts can produce a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience for another. Finding time to touch one another and embrace should be encouraged during these more challenging moments. The closeness derived from these tender moments is crucial for a long-lasting marriage.
put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience Col 3:12
