BTLN UPDATE - MIKE NIGHT
Congrats Mike! This was Mike's first Helmet of the Btln Season! Here we are five weeks into the Btln Season and we don't have a two time winner yet! Usually there is at least one two time winner by October. It is still early, but it looks like the Winston Race will be close like last year.
After Mike Night it is hard not to feel over stimulated! One of the guys said "I feel like I'm living frame by frame". The scores were probably the closest I have ever seen for Mike. Usually there is at least one team that falls way behind or jumps out to a huge lead. This time all four teams were within five points!
Mike Final Scores
Noah's Team - 74
Jason's Team - 71
Dan's Team - 70
Cam's Team - 69
In Bible Study our topic was "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
Ezekiel 18:23 Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
These passages tell us that God does not anyone to perish in their sin. God is not a tyrant waiting for us to make mistakes. God wants us to turn from our sin and live!
Romans 2:9-11 There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism.
Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.
Isn't it comforting that God does not show favoritism? It doesn't matter if we are rich, poor, young or old! God values us all the same!
Titus 2:11 The grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.
1 Timothy 4:9-10 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.
God's salvation is for all people! This is the greatest news!
Romans 10:11-13 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
