It's late at night - I'm crashing on the couch - which has a very worn spot on the middle cushion - I'm under my electric blanket - which I throw behind the couch during the day - but it affords so much warmth during these cold winter nights and mornings. It's a twin size blanket.
Back to Sarah's laptop and how it opens up. She has for her opening page something called "Of First Importance" - and these tremendous quotes show up.
I love the one below.
Remember the Blood of Christ
“I charge you never to give up the old doctrine of the blood of Christ, the complete satisfaction which that atoning blood made for sin, and the impossibility of being saved except by that blood. Let nothing tempt you to believe that it is enough to look only at the example of Christ, or only to receive the sacrament which Christ commanded to be received, for which many nowadays worship like an idol.
When you come to your deathbed, you will want something more than an example and a sacrament. Take heed that you are found resting all your weight on Christ’s substitution for you on the cross, and His atoning blood, or it will be better if you had never been born.”
