Word Sharpener Week

Contest Winner: Hannah Conway’s novel, Wounded Warrior’s Wife – Vicki Marney. Congratulations, Vicki.

Verse of the Week: I Thessalonians 4:15-17 (NIV) According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Quotes of the Week: 

“There’s a great deal to say in the Bible about the signs we’re to watch for and when these signs all converge at one place we can be sure that we’re close to the end of the age. And those signs, in my judgment, are converging now for the first time since Jesus made those predictions.” — Billy Graham

“God keeps his promises, and this is why we can be sure that the return of Christ is near. Scripture tells us that there will be signs pointing toward the return of the Lord. I believe all these signs are evident today.”  — Billy Graham

Song of the Week: I Wish We’d All Been Ready

Hymn of the Week: I’ll Fly Away

Life Sharpening Tip of the Week: Plan like you will live forever. Live like the rapture will happen at any moment.

This Week’s Challenge: The theme of this Word Sharpener Week is the rapture. Jesus could come at any time. The time of the rapture is closer than it has ever been. So the first challenge is to make sure you’re ready by accepting Jesus as your savior. The second challenge is to share with your friends and loved ones to make sure they are ready.
