Welcome to FNG Paul Farrior – Carman

Given this is Holy Week, I was reflecting on Romans 5, specifically highlighting vv 7&8: For rarely will someone die for a just person though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die.  But God proves His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

For those of the Christian faith, this week marks the pinnacle of Christ’s earthly life, the fulfillment of his divine purpose for coming to this earth, the single most loving act in the history of mankind.  If we are honest, there are lots of people that irritate or annoy us or we just plain don’t like.  Praise be to God that while we were yet more vile than those in His sight, He chose to send His Son to redeem us.  PAX if you’re looking for a role model, look no further. Jesus Christ who died for you, for me, for all the world should they confess Him as Lord.  The best news is this comes with no strings attached, and its not based on our merit (for this I’m personally very thankful)!  May you have a blessed Holy Week.
