    1. Absolutely, Mandy! We are very glad as we know what it means to receive His grace and what salvation leads to, and otherwise. We humbly accept His mercy that GOD include us Gentiles in His salvation plan for humankind. We received this with gratitude. Blessings to you, Nathan, and your parents!

  1. Paul is consistent in driving this point home, isn’t he? Ephesians 2:14 — “For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility” — How great is the salvation that unites us all in Christ Jesus!

    1. You are right on Paul’s consistency of message, Dora! Thank you for bringing up this point. Indeed, Paul’s ministry was mostly focused on the Gentiles but he also preached to the Jews. He has converts from both peoples that are made into one in JESUS CHRIST. Thank you for introducing us to Ephesians 2:14, and to continue with the remaining verses of the Scripture. “15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,[d] but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by[e] the Spirit.” (ESV) Blessings to you and your family!

    1. True, it is incomprehensible, Crissy! But we believe in faith in GOD the FATHER’s sovereign grace in choosing people as His own children. It is unbelievable to begin with why GOD the FATHER will choose us and to forgive our sins but you are right, that is His salvation plan made possible through JESUS CHRIST redemptive work for us. We are grateful to the Triune GOD for this renewed heart that we constantly experience as an indicator of His grace. Hallelujah indeed! Blessings to you, your family, and ministry!

    1. True, Jim! Even when before the missions of Paul, the dream of Peter, distinction between Jews and Gentiles, and before His creation, GOD chose the unworthy us to be called later when we’re living in this world. We’re grateful that GOD calls Gentiles to received His grace and mercy! We’re also grateful that even we are sinful and unworthy to even call Him, GOD the FATHER showed compassion and revealed a way and i.e. JESUS CHRIST. Blessings to you, Nancy, and your kids!

        1. I love pork! Not just 🥓. I think Chinese and people in the Philippines love Pork! The reason I know Adam wasn’t Chinese and pork wasn’t the forbidden fruit is because if those two was the case, well, Adam might not have repented…😁😆😂🤣

        2. Hahahaha that’s funny!! Kent has talked with me about pork dishes in the Philippines! I was thinking pork and ham more than just bacon. Personally, I love chicken! Chicken is life! I will eat pig and turkey occasionally. I never eat duck (sorry) and rarely eat beef. Nathan is a red meat guy so getting him to eat chicken is really a testament to God’s grace!!

    1. Grateful to GOD for He provides and directs! On a different light, Jim, talking about your recent post, you have changed your graphics from the Asiety title to the current before I could press enter. Thanks.

        1. Actually, my typing fingers are quite slow that when I pressed enter, you already have realized and changed it. It is probably because the “featured image” is not seen in the main content but under settings.
