If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord.
So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.

BIBLE STUDY NOTES
“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth — to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people — saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water’” Revelation 14:6, 7
The good news of the gospel is that though all mankind is unrighteous and worthy only of the wages of sin, Christ has redeemed all mankind by His death. By His life, death and resurrection He has overcome sin and death and the Devil and provides forgiveness and righteousness for all. This is the gospel, the good news of God’s salvation. It is called the everlasting gospel, because it is eternal – the plan to save mankind was made in eternity past by the Trinity.
Genesis tells us Creation and the chaos caused by the Fall. The Gospels tell us the story of how Christ redeemed Mankind here on planet earth. Revelation tells us that the climax of salvation history is near.
Thought for the Week
King of glory, King of peace,
I will love Thee;
and that love may never cease,
I will move Thee.
Thou hast granted my request,
Thou hast heard me;
Thou didst note my working breast,
Thou hast spared me.
Wherefore with my utmost art
I will sing Thee,
and the cream of all my heart
I will bring Thee.
Though my sins against me cried,
Thou didst clear me;
and alone, when they replied,
Thou didst hear me.
Seven whole days, not one in seven,
I will praise Thee;
in my heart, though not in heaven,
I can raise Thee.
Small it is, in this poor sort
to enroll Thee:
e’en eternity’s too short
to extol Thee.
