We Always Pay The Price

Morning Inspiration! Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. Galatians 6:7–8
What I now call ‘my former life’ is proof this Scripture is accurate. I completely ignored God for 20 years. Worse, I mocked him & his people. I learned about Jesus as a child, but shunned my faith as a young teen into my 30’s. I definitely paid a heavy price. I hurt those who loved me most, destroyed my marriage, lost my self respect & sunk into a selfish, degrading lifestyle that took me into deep depression & near suicide. My life today is far from perfect, but I am calmed, comforted (& more importantly, forgiven) by my Savior, Who is! Jesus will give His Holy Spirit to you too, if you simply & sincerely ask him to take over your life.

Prayer Request Joshua Link

Urgent prayer request for our brother Josh Link, his wife Mary & their young children. Here is the latest Facebook post from Josh:
So apparently I’m really bad at this social media stuff. It has been over a year since I’ve given everyone an update on my health, so here goes.
As most of you know by now, I’ve been fighting colorectal cancer since August 2016. I made it through all the treatments and surgeries and was considered “cancer free” until February of this year when they found some new lesions on my liver and a possible lymph node. Thus, I began chemo again in March and finished in May. The cancer responded well to the chemo so they determined another liver resection was the best course of action.
I have spent the last couple months recovering from the chemo, getting mistletoe treatments, and doing everything possible to get as strong and healthy as possible for the pending surgery. I will have that surgery tomorrow at 0730 at UNM main and hope to be out within 3-4 days. …

Urgent Prayer Request for Laura Galbraith

I just returned from a hospital visit with Laura Galbraith. Many of you know she has been bravely battling a rare form of cancer for the past several years. Today, due to another development in her health status, Laura decided to discontinue any further treatments. While she still believes God can and will cure her, she is at the stage where her knowledge of this situation has brought her to understand that further medical treatments are useless. While she is sad it has come to this, she is still hopeful, & joyful.  She joked & laughed again & again during our short visit.

Her sister Beth is here & will be able to stay, while plans are made for Laura to move into Home Hospice care. I told Laura how grateful I have been for her openness throughout this long & difficult process. Her Facebook posts have been open & honest, & she has repeatedly expressed her complete & endless faith in Jesus. She has encouraged many others through her personal witness in th…

Our sister Laura Galbraith is now with Jesus.

Our sister Laura Galbraith is now with Jesus. Her sister Beth let us know early this evening that the time was close, & Laura passed into the arms of our Savior about 7:30 tonight. Laura has been an active part of our NCC family for many years. Until she became very ill recently, she faithfully baked delicious loaves of homemade bread each week, to be handed out to every guest on their first visit to New Covenant.

Laura was a rather quiet person in crowds, but was very bold about her faith in Jesus. She was also brave enough to share many of the details of her cancer journey through her Facebook posts over the past several years. Being extremely intelligent, she did a good amount of research & study on her type of cancer. She wrote about her hope for new types of treatment, but ALWAYS stated that she had total trust in Jesus, and would be satisfied with whatever He decided. During our visit in the hospital just a few days ago, she was active & talkative, even a bit embarra…
