By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. (Hebrews 11:8-10 ESV)
Верою Авраам повиновался призванию идти в страну, которую имел получить в наследие, и пошел, не зная, куда идет. Верою обитал он на земле обетованной, как на чужой, и жил в шатрах с Исааком и Иаковом, сонаследниками того же обетования; ибо он ожидал города, имеющего основание, которого художник и строитель Бог. (Евреям 11:8-10 Russian)
O LORD my God, blessed and most holy Father in heaven ~ accept our prayers of thanksgiving from believers around the world as we lift our hearts and voices in praise of your magnificent plan of salvation that requires our faithful participation with your Son whom we also love. Help us to emulate the faith of Abraham and the apostles. Let our will be in agreement with your will. Give us peace of mind to live as pilgrims, with our heart set upon your beautiful promises that are realized in wholehearted service to Christ as Lord in your blessed church. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
** Please forgive me for not being able to get my WORD message out yesterday (Monday). It hurts me to no end when this happens. We had our urgent work to accomplish for Mt. Dora Children’s Home yesterday that took us most of the day.
