Salem Sisters and Brothers:

Easter Sunday is April 12 this year. Only four more Sundays. One of our Scripture readings for Tuesday 3-17-20 is
1 Corinthians 10:1-4,(NIV) Warnings From Israel’s History “For I do not in want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.”


Through the wilderness the Israelites experienced many very difficult days.
But God was with them all the way encouraging, loving, often reprimanding, and disciplining them.

Paul is telling the Corinthians (and us)that even though we also go through tough times,
God is with us for we also walk with God through the fire and the sea.

But we eat the same spiritual food and drink the same spiritual drink as they did,
for we too drink from the same spiritual Rock which accompanies us.
That Rock is Christ.

Jesus is here for you as He was there for them. He is with you exactly right now. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
For you are greatly loved. Even though life sometimes is lonely and even fearful and tough Jesus is with us,
the Comforter, The Holy Spirit, is also with us.

Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you and empower you as you walk and wait and work and trust God our Heavenly Father.

You are a very important part of the body of Christ and you are greatly loved!!!

My phone # is 931-704-3710 if you ever need someone to talk to.

God Bless you. May you be filled with Resurrection Grace.

Bro. Thad
