Romans 6:5-10

For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.

For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.

For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

We recently bought a new game that has been a big hit for all: Croquet! Having missed out on this particular blessing thus far in life, I've really enjoyed learning something new. The nice thing about it is that anyone of almost any age can become very good at it. All you have to do is aim and swing a mallet; sort of a relative of miniature golf.

Croquet anyone?

God Bless You!

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. What were the names of the people with whom Paul stayed while in Corinth, and what was their occupation?

A. Aquila and Pricilla, tentmakers


After these things Paul departed from Athens and went to Corinth. And he found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla... and he came to them.

So, because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them and worked; for by occupation they were tentmakers.

Acts 18:1-3

Paul made a point of earning his keep rather than depending on the good will of the people with whom he stayed.
