    Satan Crushed Under Your Feet
    The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.  Romans 16:20  I gave this benediction at the end of our worship service yesterday.   It's a striking verse! Startling, even! First, think about how God is described in this verse.  He's the God of peace.  And yet what he has in store for Satan is not peaceful!  No, the peace he brings is to us as his people.  Satan is never promised peace.  Since Satan is the disturber of peace, God will

    We Are the Champions
    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?  As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  Romans 8:35-37 So the Clemson Tigers won the CFP championship game last night, 35 to 31, defeating the Crimson Tide of Alabama.  Alabama fans are mourning their
