Here's what you need to know about how Jeremy and his family are handling this. GOD is good! Every event and challenge in life is an opportunity for God to be glorified. We understand that as Christians our purpose here on earth is to glorify God, so if God is glorified we are satisfied. We know that God is in control and that he has a plan in allowing this to happen to Jeremy. Job 14.5 assures us that God knows the number of our days and we can do nothing to change what God has decreed will happen. Seeing then that Jeremy is still with us we are confident that God has a plan for him. Jeremy, as well as his family, are looking forward to seeing answered prayer and God's grace demonstrated in all of our lives.
In 1994 Jeremy recognized the truth in Titus 3:5 that there was nothing he could ever do that would be good enough to merit God's favor and eternal salvation. Even as a young boy he understood his need for a Savior and repented of his sins placing his faith and hope for salvation in what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross. That faith in Christ is what is sustaining him and his family today.
The Bible tells us in Romans chapter 3 and chapter 6 that 'all have sinned' and 'the wages of sin is death', eternal separation from God in Hell. It also tells us that 'the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ'.
Jesus Christ's death on the cross was the sacrifice necessary to satisfy the righteous wrath of a Holy God against sin. The book of Romans tells us that if we do not know Jesus as our personal Savior, the way Jeremy and his family do, that you are the enemy of God. As his enemies, though he loves us, we are subject to his wrath and judgment, HELL.
You too have a decision to make. Life is short and this tragedy is a reminder that the life we have can change in an instant. Will you be ready to meet God when you die?
Romans 10:9-13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12... for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Our desire is that through Jeremy's testimony of faith and dependence on God others might come to know Christ as their personal Savior, and through that God would be glorified.
Hey !!!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, Randy and LeAnna, Becky and Riley, and my mom came for lunch. Than my brother John and Alaina and Dee stopped by, it's so wonderful to catch up with family. I love Thanksgiving time. I am so thankful for all of you !!!! Some-days I'm so tired and I am so glad you all are praying for me. Jeremy is not big on Turkey so we had Ham also. Jeremy neck was very stiff and sore from the Atlanta trip so he had the chiropractor come and work out the knots and stiffness, Jeremy said it was very painful but the stiffness and knots were relieved. The chiropractor told us the next time we travel a long way, Jeremy should have a soft collar around his neck to help absorb the bumps. He has been battling fatigue so he hasn't been playing his X-Box. Last Saturday he watched the OSU Buckeyes beat Michigan, it was such and intense game that his shoulders hurt and he was physically wore out !!!! He is scheduled to have his nose operation in the middle of January, this surgery will hopefully help him breath through his nose better but it will be very annoying. On a sad note, Terry's sweet Aunt Hazrel passed away, she will be missed but she is with our Lord. I finally was able to paint Jeremy's therapy room !!! It's beginning to look like a room. )I need to get busy. Thanks so much, Marcia
