Jesus means “The Lord is Salvation”.
If you’re new here, each week we all learn about and memorize a Bible verse together. We’ve put the verse(s) into song to help you learn the verse and recall it during your day. If you’d like to see the archives of all the verses we’ve done so far, you can find our posts here and a list of all the YouTube videos here. We’ll also be giving a family update on what has happened in the past week.
Well, we had a mostly lovely Easter. How was yours? Other than some night-time thunderstorms that made the egg hunt a bit soggy, the weather was wonderful too.
Other than this week having fewer large meals involving ham, there is a lot that’s going to be different about this week. It’d be nice to have chill week where we don’t have to worry about much, but when has that ever happened? Kaylin is starting a new part-time summer job this week, which should be fun. She hasn’t had a “real” job since college, so it’ll be interesting to see her get back out into the world of paid labor again. Also, she has some more Better Way Imports parties coming up. If you don’t know anything about that, PLEASE check out last Friday’s post. Better Way is helping solve a terrible issue in a wonderful way, and any support you can give would be wonderful. You don’t even need to buy anything, but I challenge you to do something!
Scripture Memory Song
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1 (ESV)
Another week, another verse about fear, or rather the lack of it. The Lord is all powerful, omnipotent, and he has promised to watch over us and give us a purpose. He has promised us eternal life if we have faith in him.
So what is there to fear? The worst thing that can be done to us is to take our earthly lives from us, but why should we fear that? That will only bring us face-to-face with our loving savior sooner! If they make our lives miserable here on Earth, then God has promised to be with us each step of the way to give us the strength to carry on. We will be able to use those situations to shine a light in the darkness, to reveal the almighty God to those who persecute us, and rescuing just a single soul from the eternal damnation of hell is worth it. We may not see it that way as we go through that adversity, but it’s true, and you’ll believe it when you’re in heaven.What do we have to be afraid of? Be #Fearless for #God!

So let’s all be fearless. Let’s proclaim the Gospel boldly and bring glory to the name of Jesus, who rescued us from eternal damnation through his selfless sacrifice on the cross and subsequent resurrection.
