Another Week in Xenia Ohio

Some thoughts from this week as I read more in my One Year Bible:
  • From Deuteronomy 10, what does God require of his people? Fear Him, Walk in His ways, Love Him, and to serve Him
  • Hear the Word and put it into practice (Luke 8:21)
  • The Lord is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and soul (Deuteronomy 13:3)
  • In Luke 9:1 Jesus specifically gave the twelve disciples power and authority to drive out demons and cure diseases
  • Why did Jesus often tell people to not tell anyone who he was? (Luke 9)
  • A man is praised according to his wisdom (Proverbs 12:8)
  • In Luke 9 we see the disciples arguing which of them was the greatest. Jesus told them that the least is really the greatest.
  • He who works the land will have abundant food, he who chases fantasies lacks judgement (Proverbs 12:11)
Other activities of the week included:
  • Having a $60 million dollar contract awarded to Northrop Grumman at work on Tuesday (no fooling...April 1st...agh...)
  • House church at Tim Horton’s Wednesday evening (where we started our “the price has been paid” campaign)
  • Getting basement plans and permit applications on Thursday for finishing the basement in our house
  • Watching the grass come alive and turn green for another mowing season!
