Mundy's Quote for the Day

Mundy's Quote for the Day By: Reverend Lynwood F. Mundy
Timothy’s Faith and Heritage
3 I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day, 4 greatly desiring to see you, being mindful of your tears, that I may be filled with joy, 5 when I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also. 6 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:3-7, NKJV)

The International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson forMarch 1, 2015The Lamb of GodJohn 1:29-34This treatment of the International Sunday SchoolLesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the February 22 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Sam E. Stone  This month’s lessons highlight “The Pledge of God’s Presence,” as seen in the Gospels of John and Mark. The quarter’s overall theme is, “The Spirit Comes.” The preparatory ministry of John the Baptist is recounted early in John’s Gospel. It had been almost 400 years since the last Old Testament prophet appeared on the stage of Scripture. Malachi concluded his message by predicting that the prophet Elijah would come one day to call people back to God’s Word and his will (Malachi 3:1). The people were waiting for this to happen.
