Sunday Scripture

It was wonderful to be back with my church family on this beautiful sunny and cool Sunday morning in Homestead Florida. (Last Sunday I was 3 hours away over in Fort Myers and Estero. Read all about it on my blog post from this past Thursday.)

Praise & Worship was awesome as always – led by our Worship Pastor Ben. One of my favorite songs that we sing to God is “Victor’s Crown”. I love this part:

You have overcome
You have overcome
Jesus You have overcome the world

Our Lead Pastor Bob continued his Noah message series, and I learned 3 new terms today – “Kaphar”, “Kopher”, and “Pitch”.

Build a large boat from cypress wood and waterproof it with tar – inside and out. Then construct decks and stalls throughout its interior. (Genesis 6:14 NLT)

The large boat was the ark. Inside the ark was the only way to survive – with redemption and salvation.

“Kaphar” means to cover over – to atone for. “Kopher” is the price of a life. “Pitch” is the tar or the blood covering.

Jesus Christ covered over all of our sins – past, present, and future – with His blood, so that we may survive – so that we may live eternally with God.
