When reading Genesis, I am forced look at the evil in man and how hurt our Creator was with us. Then how he displayed His righteous angry by flooding the world. But I also see the compassion He showed Noah and how God showed an example of his gracious mercy by giving us a second chance. Noah was 600 years at the time of the flood. God told him not to eat an animal with the blood still in it, and demanded an account of any blood shed of man. Noah lived 950 years. My favorite part of this book, is the covenant made by God with man and every living creature. So whenever I see a rainbow I’m reminded of His everlasting love for us.

Pastor Gary shared a powerful message, after we said the pledge of allegiance and prayed in remembrance of the soldiers we lost for our freedom. He started with 1John 5:11-12. “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” It is point blank the way I understand it. thus confirming it is all about a personal relationship with our wonderful Savior. Pastor went on to say that Satan hates The Father. and will try anything to interfere with your faith in Jesus Christ. he then said The Word of God can lead you to salvation, we as Christians need to share The Gospel and he taught us step by step how to do so. such as ABC (accept,believe.confess) or the Roman road. By this we are armed to be the soldiers of God we have been called to be! Pastor Gary was on fire for The Lord more so than ever and I am grateful for this message.
