“Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke‬ ‭24:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The Liber Linteus is an ancient text that dates back to the days of the Etruscans, a culture that flourished in Italy in the years prior to the rise of the Roman Empire. Wildly enough, this manuscript was once the wrappings on a mummy. Most of the Liber Linteus writings, which were removed from a female Egyptian mummy and later made into a book in the 19th century, can’t be translated because they were written in the little-understood Etruscan language. But what little scholars can understand reveals it to be some sort of ritual calendar.

While there are many works that exist in the world, both new and ancient, that are indecipherable, the Bible was never meant to be one of them. For that very reason, the Lord sent the Holy Spirit to help us understand who we worship, how we are to live, and even to make sense of futuristic prophetic writings. 

As you come to church today, know that God does not want to be an unsolved mystery in your life! Just as Jesus appeared to men on the way to Emmaus, He will make Himself known to you today too! Worship what you know by getting to know who you are worshipping! You are loved today!

“Promote the kind of living that reflects wholesome teaching.” (Titus‬ ‭2‬:‭1‬ NLT)

In 2009, Tammie Lohman, 37, was incarcerated at the Washington Correctional Center for Women, doing a stint for robbery. Then her daughter, Nikki, 18, was sent up for identity fraud. While in prison, Nikki gave birth to a son, Logan. For a time, three generations of family resided under a single prison roof. Would this be a legacy? They are hoping not. 

We are all products of what we are taught and what we choose. Being taught good morals doesn’t necessarily translate into a right lifestyle, but the odds are greater that they will be. By being in a healthy, vibrant church and among encouraging people, we tend to become a more moral, healthy, blessed, and happy people. And although some people aren’t, you can virtually guarantee that you won’t be by not participating in a church. Absence of good will always lead to bad.

As you start your weekend, come to church and make sure to involve God in your life. A strong church family is necessary for godly growth and emotional support. Let your generations be found in better places because they are being taught and raised right! Have a great weekend! You are loved!
