THE EDIFIER

I Corinthians 14:26

“Let all things be done unto edifying”

An E-Letter from Ted and Barbara Knight to EDIFY our Brothers and Sisters in Romania

April 27, 2011

Dear Brothers, Sisters, & Friends,

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE? We have asked ourselves that question or someone else has asked it probably several times in life. We may give it some thought lightly and then go on to something else or perhaps we have been caused to give it very serious consideration. I am asking you to give it your most serious thought while reading this and after finishing it, I urge you to take just a few minutes, turn away from your computer, close your mind to everything else and focus on that question” “WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE?”

On April 25, 2011 some very dangerous storms came through our area. Several people were killed and Millions of dollars in material things were destroyed. Many people either lost their houses completely or they were badly damaged. Among those whose home was damaged was our Son Marty, whom most of you know. While Marty, Lisa, Kyndall, and Erin stood together in a small room of the house, the storm descended upon it and damaged it a great deal but they were not harmed. PRAISE GOD

Do you know what was going through Barbara’s and my mind? WE WANTED OUR FAMILY TO BE SAFE! We can replace houses, cars, and other material things but we wanted our family to be safe. But, even more important, WE THANKED GOD THAT THEY WERE CHRISTIANS and we knew that if their lives should be taken, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD WAS THAT THEY WERE CHRISTIANS AND FAITHFULLY SERVING THE LORD.

In MATT. 16:21-28 Jesus taught us about the danger of having EARTHLY TREASURES and not possessing HEAVENLY TREASURES. I urge you to study that section of scripture seriously and consider your priorities. The most important thing in this life is for YOU TO BE A FAITHFUL CHRISTIAN and serve the Lord with your entire life. May God help us to do that and if we are not doing it, LET US BEGIN TO DO SO RIGHT NOW!

May God bless and keep you this week is our prayer. We love you very much.

With Much Love,

Ted & Barbara
