“For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby...” Ephesians 2: 14-16

“ And this I say, that the covenant that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.“For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.” Galatians 3:17,18

Ezekiel and Tina

    Ezekiel is five. Tina is seven. They both trusted Jesus Christ, God the Son, as their own personal Savior this year and come regularly to our weekly LAMB Youth Bible Study and dinner. They are young, but Jesus said, “ But whoso shall offend one of these little ones WHICH BELIEVE IN ME, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6). So, believing the clear Gospel does not require one to be a certain age. Ezekiel and Tina have most truly believed the Gospel and have eternal life. And they are excited about learning the Bible, nearly flying into our big LAMB Miracle Van every Wednesday night. But their Mother is in a dogmatic Law cult. Though Paul wrote in Galatians 3:21, “...if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain”, their Mother demands they be taught Moses’ Law. Every time we pick up her children for Bible Study and dinner, she insists that to go to Heaven or to be pleasing to God we must follow Moses. ”But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God...” is not evident to her, which  reveals that we should be praying for a chance to explain the clear Gospel to her. “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage,” says the Apostle Paul in Galatians 5:1. Does this mean that we should ”...continue in sin, that grace may abound?” (Romans 6:1) Should we keep on sinning and indulging our flesh “...because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.” (Romans 6:15)  No! Grace is not license. “Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.” (Galatians 5:4). “For by grace are ye saved by faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9). Our Ministry Youth understand the freedom they have in Christ and they rejoice in it! That's why so many keep coming to Bible Study, week after week, year after year. Thank you for your prayers as we try to reach kids, teens and adults for Christ and to disciple them in His inerrant Word. Please continue to pray and to help us any way you can in this work, reaching as many people as possible for faith alone in Christ alone that by believing they may receive God's precious free gift of everlasting life - Heaven.

God bless,
