Jewel # 107 (March 28, 2012)


"And they shall be Mine,  saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up
MY JEWELS."
(Malachi 3:17)

To my dear grandchildren,

Lost for Seven Years

It certainly was a mystery when a cat named Smoky suddenly reappeared seven years after she had vanished from her owner's backyard!  Denise had held out hope that Smokey would return someday.  Even thought she had moved, she still had the same phone number.  Still, she was quite surprised when she got a call telling her that the Animal Control Service had her long lost pet!

"I don't know where this cat has been for seven years!" said Denise.  The Animal Control Service had used a small identification tattoo on the cat to trace Smokey to her owner.  Smokey is slowly getting reacquainted with her owner and new home.  Denise says it is important to have your pet marked with permanent identification.

I wonder if you have Jesus' identification mark on you, showing that you belong to Him.  God can see it, because He sees that you are covered with the precious blood of His beloved Son.  When the call comes to go to heaven, will you go to be with Jesus? or will you be lost forever?  It all depends on whether or not you have that identification mark.

Thankfully, Smokey wasn't lost forever because of the identification mark on her body that showed she belonged to Denise.  Are your sins covered with the blood of Jesus showing you belong to Him?

"The blood of Jesus Christ God's Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7).
"Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered" (Romans 4:7).

I love you all,
Grandpa
