THOUGHT AND SCRIPTURE FOR THE WEEK

Life without Christ is a hopeless end, but life with Christ is an endless hope!  Galatians 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

EASTER JELLY BEANS

                             Red is for the blood He gave

                             Green is for the grass He made

                             Yellow is for the sun so bright

                             Orange is for the edge of night

                             Black is for the sins that were made

                             White is for the grace He gave

                             Purple is for the hour of sorrow

                             Pink is for the new tomorrow

OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES

A little girl asked her mother if she had electricity in her hair.  “Yes,” said mother.  The little girl replied, “Then we’ve got all the latest improvements in our family, haven’t we?”  Mother was confused and asked, “What do you mean that we have all the latest improvements?”  The little girl answered, “Well, grandma has gas on her stomach, and I have electricity in my hair.”

THE COLORS OF THE FLAG OF HEAVEN

Not only are the colors of our American flag born in heaven, but the order in which they are spoken and sung has its origin and significance in the banner of the cross.  We do not say, “Blue, white and red,” nor do we name them in any other way other then the natural one: “Red, white and blue.”  This is God’s method of salvation – first sacrifice, then holiness, then heaven.  These colors cannot be in any other order.  Through the blood of the Lamb (red) comes purity (white), then paradise (blue) = Red, White and Blue!

THE CROSS

By:  Edward V. Thompson

I was a carpenter, and when the order came

To make a wooden cross, I made it in God’s name.

How did I know that they would take the cross I made

To crucify the friend who humbly shared my trade?

So when I heard him pray, I know He meant me, too,

“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
