Message: The Blessing of God’s Word (and why I need it so badly)
Scripture: Isaiah 25:6-9
Offered 1/10/16, Bible Sunday, at Trinity United Methodist Church, Sarasota FL
On Bible Sunday we give elementary school age children their first Bibles and rededicate ourselves to the blessing of God’s Holy Word. This day was especially wonderful because we also dedicated new pew Bibles and songbooks. Click Here for the resource we us when presenting Bibles.

1 Corinthians 15:54-57 NRSV
When this perishable body puts on imperishability, and this mortal body puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will be fulfilled: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 21:4 NRSV
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.
I’m excited to now offer mp3’s of my Sunday messages. A huge thank you to Leon and my brothers and sisters at Trinity United Methodist Church, Sarasota for all their help in making this possible. If you’re ever in Sarasota, please drop by for worship Sundays at 9am or 10:30am, or drop by during the week for a chat or small group. You and those you love are always welcome.
