The Gospel


Is anything too hard for God?

25 But thus says the LORD: “ Even the
captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
And the prey of the terrible be delivered;
For I will contend with him who contends
with you, And I will save your children.
26 I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh,
And they shall be drunk with their own blood
as with sweet wine. All flesh shall know
That I, the LORD, am your Savior,
And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of
Jacob.”

Our God is mighty to save!

My nephew was in a car accident on Friday. He was thrown from his vehicle and landed on the pavement in the center of the roadway, on the downhill side of a hill. He could have been killed.

But, God.

He alone has contended with death and he saved that young man. Although he suffered some injuries, they are quickly healing, and he is out of intensive care after less than 24 hours.

No surgery. No long term adverse effects.

Only God has saved this child.
We rejoice in the faithfulness of 0ur God! God's Word is good news.
