a website and a clothing store in the next few years to

Marshall stated that this
event is not a cure-all and
more steps need to be taken
to make a change for the
better. He stated that along
with prayer, there should be
a summit where clergy,
government leaders, police
officials and gang leaders
come together on neutral
ground and talk through
issues that all sides have
with one another.

honor their Pastor and First Lady with commemoratory
gifts of love and appreciation during our morning worship
service. We request your prayers, love, and support from
peace, we continue to fail to achieve it and this is a time
proven truth since the beginning of time. The fear of the
Lord is the beginning of knowledge, and the lack of fear
or recognition, respect, and reverence for God is both
cause and result of sin. Paul's conclusion then is man has
chosen to live by law, a choice made in the wilderness
period of Israel. The law has since been so perverted by
the very ones it's to protect so that we now live under
grace. That grace is through salvation provided by Christ
on the cross. Law points out sin and guilt, but salvation
saves us from the penalty of sin.
all who love, know, and
appreciate Dr. and Mrs. Hunt
for anything that they have
done to impact your life in a
way that has encouraged,
equipped, or empowered you
with a new birth experience.

For Your Consideration: What does it mean to fear
God? What does it mean to exist under the power of sin?
Life's Application: We as trusting Christians are no
longer under sin but under grace. We are still however,
sometimes guilty of sin. So, when we fall prey to sin, we
are to confess and forsake our sin and "be restored to fel
lowship and once again experience spiritual power over
sin." (Brian D. Doud). Christ died and rose again that we
might have this privilege as joint heirs with Him.
