The Week in Words - February 1


Sorry I'm late! I was busy playing in the snow Saturday (WOO-HOO!), and Sunday is my "unplugged" day. Are you ready with your quotes? I confess, I found some wonderful quotes in Anne of Avonlea, but I forgot to write them down before I had to return the book to the library. So, I only have one quote this week, but it's a great one from John Piper's This Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence

God took the record of all of your sins that made you a debtor to wrath (sins are offenses against God that bring down his wrath), and instead of holding them up in front of your face and using them as the warrant to send you to hell, God put them in the palm of his Son's hand and drove a spike through them into the cross. It is a bold and graphic statement: He canceled the record of our debt...nailing it ot the cross (Col. 2:14)

Nothing to add to that, except PRAISE JESUS & AMEN!

Are you ready to play? Remember, leave your specific link below.

That statement is both bold and graphic, and thank God, so true.

When do you close the link for this carnival? Is it Friday morning? I was disappointed to see that I missed it this week as well as last!
