Blasphemy and Eleventh Hour Salvation. By Elder Barbara Morris

Luke 23:39-44 New King James Version (NKJV)

39 Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, [a]“If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.”

40 But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong.” 42 Then he said [b]to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”

43 And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”

Jesus Dies on the Cross

44 Now it [c]was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

A Mother’s Impact. By Dr. Chuck Pedersen

Philippians 4:4-9, NIV

4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heats and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praise worthy–think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

The Wisdom of the Cross. By Dr. Chuck Pedersen, Pastor

1 Corinthians 1:23-25, (NIV)
23but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24but to those whom God has called, both Jew and Greeks, Christ the power of god and the wisdom of God. 25for the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.
