Dear Church Friends and Family:
Welcome to the month of March 2011! Trying the think of something to write about for this month brought me to the memory of the saying, â€œIn like a lion, out like a lambâ€. This saying was given as a description of the crazy weather of the month of March. If the weather came harsh and cold, â€œlike a lionâ€, it would balance out and god out calm and peaceful, â€œlike a lambâ€.
We often wonder why it seems that in this world evil is so abundant. We look at all the bad that happens and wonder if the good can ever balance the scales. We can rest assured from reading and studying the book of Revelation that God takes care of everything. The Lion and the Lamb are actually both good when we look at them from a Heavenly view. We can some â€œin like the Lambâ€ with the authority and strength of the Holy Spirit and we can go â€œout like the Lambâ€ with peace in our hearts that passes all understanding.
Ponder these things in your hearts as we serve the Lion of Judah and the Lamb of God at Iola Missionary. Keep others in your prayers and hope to see you on Sunday.
