Becca and I went to Sunday School - what a blessing!
Our class finished up our covenant study this week. We were primarily reading in Galatians.
This part of our study was interesting.
22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

We talked about the freedom of Christianity and the bondage of islam and other religions. Jesus came to GIVE us Salvation. These other religions have their laws, rituals and legalistic ways and they hate/judge those who are free. It is interesting to see how this still is happening proving God's Word.
The last half of our day is another favorite past time. We are enjoying multiple games of football all day long. I'm catching up on the blog and preparing for possible future opportunities. The boys are talking football and hoping for wins in their fantasy league. Becca is finishing up her homework and watching football too. If you are wondering about Major...well, he is currently sleeping....but I must say...football season is NOT his favorite time of year. Why? - you ask? - - - Well if you have ever watched football with the boys for any length of time - you would quickly know why -- THEY GET LOUD! Yelling at the tv at good plays and bad! Major will just get into a good sleep and then there is one of those plays that prompts the yelling and it disturbs his slumber. He is usually right under foot - but on this fall Sundays - he is more likely found as far from the tv as possible!
Go Cowboys, Bucs, Bills, Romo and Tebow!!!
