Danger Of Neglecting So Great A Salvation
Pastor Dan Cochrane
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love 5 He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves. 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that He lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding,
Eph 1:3-8 (NIV)
Prayer Focus for March
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:2
