Faithful Servant, Home With The Lord

January 4, 2023
Zack Godwin and his wife Rosalyn.

Zack Godwin, SOS Events Leader on the Alabama team went home to be with the Lord on Monday evening.

He was a wonderful husband, father and friend. Zack will be missed by all who knew him. His family will appreciate prayers at this time.

The one thing we can be sure of is that we will see him again. Jesus gave us the assurance of eternal life through his death on the cross. One day we will be reunited with our loved ones who have trusted Jesus as their Savior.

John 11:25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

The Christmas Tree-Symbol of Eternal Life

December 13, 2022

It wasn’t until about the nineteenth century that we find Christianity absorbing the bright, cheery symbolism of the Christmas tree. The Christians had long held the fir as a symbol of the Tree of Life.

Early Christians knew their symbolism well, as they added candles and apples to their Christmas firs. These candles represented the light of Christ. The apples symbolized knowledge which spawned man’s original sin according to Christian belief.

Here we see the light of Christ forgiving the “fall of man” within the symbol of the Christmas tree.

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

The Wreath-Symbol of Eternal Life

December 6, 2022

The wreath has significant meaning for the season. It’s circular shape represents eternity, for it has no beginning and no end. 

For a Christian, it represents an unending circle of life. The evergreen, most frequently used in making wreathes, symbolizes growth and everlasting life.

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.
John 10:28-30
