1 John 5:11
But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Titus 3:4-7 (KJV)
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

1 John 4:14 ESV
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:13-17 (KJV)
Let's recognise and thank Garry for all he does for us.
Faith: Read Hebrews chapter 11. It tells us that Christ Jesus is better than anything any other religion has to offer.
One topic the book speaks to most extensively is faith. Paul wanted the readers to hold fast to their commitment to God no matter what came their way. Faith in Christ was the foundation for this level of commitment. In this get-back-to-basics book, Paul wrote with the purpose of clarifying that only Christ, not sacred traditions or new ideas, was to be the center of a life of faith.
According to Hebrews 11, faith is believing that God exists, that He rewards those who seek Him and that we can place hope in Him because His promises will always be true. After Paul defines faith, he puts flesh on it in ways that both the intended readers and Christians today can look to to understand how to live an authentic life of faith.
There are two Ordinary Time periods in the Methodist liturgical year, the weeks after Epiphany and Kingdomtide, and the weeks after Pentecost. The Christian year focuses upon two major periods in the life of Christ: Christmas (Advent-Christmas-Epiphany) and Easter (Lent-Easter-Pentecost).
Ordinary Time follows each period.
The word "ordinary" does not mean "routine" or "not special," but refers to the "ordinal numbers" (first, second, third, etc.) used to count the Sundays (such as the Third Sunday after Epiphany). This term comes from the Latin ordinalis, meaning "numbered" or "ordered," and tempus ordinarium, "measured time."
The first period of Ordinary Time, called the Season after Epiphany, begins on Epiphany Day and ends on the day before Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent). The central theme of this season is the calling of disciples and the early ministry of Jesus.
The second period of Ordinary Time, the Season after Pentecost, follows the Easter period. It begins the day after Pentecost and continues to Advent. The purpose of this season is to support new disciples and the whole congregation in living out the gifts and callings discerned during the Easter Season and commissioned on the Day of Pentecost.
Every year, Christians experience the contrast between the central seasons of Christmas and Easter, and the in-between times, where we see, speak about, and join God's ongoing work in the world. We thus experience two regular periods of preparation, celebration and action in ministry each year, with the Ordinary Times as the primary periods of action.
The Doctrine of Justification
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
Psalm 143:10 (KJV)
It's not the Will of God if it goes against the Word of God!
Don't be deceived, don't try to justify doing something that is against God's perfect will.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)
