INSTRUCTIONS IN GRACE

  • EPHESIANS 2:8-10
    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. NIV
  • 2 THESSALONIANS 2:16-17
    May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. NIV
  • COLOSSIANS 4:6
    Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
  • 2 TIMOTHY 1:9-10
    ...who has saved us and called us to a holy life-not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. NIV
  • 2 TIMOTHY 2:1
    You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. NIV
  • ROMANS 11:6
    And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. NIV
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 12:9
    But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. NIV

I'm so sorry to hear this! My home church (Blue Ridge Bible Church in Kansas City, MO) experienced a fire in 1992. Our sanctuary burned when the heater in the baptismal tank was accidentally left on after the water was drained. Fire doors at the back of the sanctuary stopped the fire from consuming the whole building, but there was smoke and water damage in other parts of the facility. The process of rebuilding took about three years, and during that time, our church services were held in our Christian school's gym. It was a hard time, but the Lord was gracious to us through it.

I was very confused for a second.........

that's really sad :( I've talked to several churches over the last year in Customer Care that have had that happen. I actually cried over the phone with a lady once.

(I went to Blue Ridge Bible Church when i was in KC!)
