OUR 2014 MEMORY VERSE

2014 MEMORY VERSE
“WITH ETERNITY’S VALUES IN VIEW”
A meditation on Philippians 1:21 for our Communion Service
“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
FBC Earlville 1-5-14 10:30 AM Rev. J.B. Stopford, Pastor

Our memory verse for 2014 divides nicely into two parts. I want to take the second part – “and to die is gain” – first. This is the HOPE of the passage. Our Savior and Scripture invite us to trust the Lord Jesus as our Lord and Savior. If we have that trust, then the Bible says we also have a HOPE. The hope says I belong to Him, and that I will also spend eternity with Him! “To die is gain” isn’t a morbid thought; rather it is a HOPE of eternity – knowing that I can LIVE for God today because I have HOPE for tomorrow!

“If they could live here all those years, so can we!” Joe confidently declared.
