Thank you again; I say thank you.

Throughout the years, supporters have mailed us all sorts of beautiful presents, from kitchen appliances, clothing, stickers, plaques, books, blankets, toys, and Bibles, to computers, cameras, and other equipment necessary for the growth of the addedSOULS ministry. We even received a delicious cake in the mail while in TN from a very loving sister; I was unaware such a thing was possible; memorable indeed.

Those who partake with us have spiritually invested in our provision for the further development of the kingdom in this mission. We hold each item in fond memory, calling to mind prayers for the well-being of the gift giver. Each time we receive love from our brethren, our heart fills with comfort and joy. In times of deep sorrow and challenges, gifts of love soften the anxiety and bring peace to our thoughts. We are forever grateful to God for the compassion of saints willing to sacrifice what they have worked diligently to give; it is not in vain. And we, in turn, are blessed with the support to reinforce another; the opportunity to give back is very fulfilling in life. If 1000 bad things seek to dig us down, the loving act of one gift can conquer the climb.

We love you dearly and pray our bond remains faithful and growing till our Master returns. "Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."

Your servant,
SM

"Cleansing the Temple"
"Water Baptism, Saves?"

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.

POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,
