"May all the gifts and benefits that come from God our Father, and the Master Jesus Christ, be
yours. Every time I think of you--and I think of you often!--I thank God for our lives of free and
open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you, it’s beyond
speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives."
1 Corinthians 1: 3-9

Just think, you don’t need a thing; you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as
you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that
but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up
by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son
and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.
“Jesus the Light of the World” (Hymn –Charles Wesley): We’ll walk in the light, beautiful light.
Come where the dewdrops of mercy shine bright. Oh, shine all around us by day and by night.
Jesus, the light of the world.
“I am the world’s light. No one who follows me stumbles around in the darkness.
I provide plenty of light to lie in.” - John 8:12
