summer's here

 Hair cuts all around.  Its been a long battle but they finally got it chop off.  wow looking at the photos they really had long hair.  so funny.

Britton made a comp. lacrosse team  we are traveling all over each weekend for him to play.  I hope he likes it, cause its a lot of work and time away from his being board.  He is getting to be quite the good little lacrosse goalie. 
 My summer is filled with Young women's activities every Wed night I get to hang out with these darling girls.  Its so fun to have some girl time. I just wish I was not so old and tired LOL
I did get my new chandler  go over to my to see more photos. I love doing little things to get my house finished.  It is along process and will  take years but I can see progress and I love that a few rooms are coming together. 

Bry and I celebrated our 22 anniversary wow that sounds like a long time ha ha.  Its been hard but what marriage isn't.  we have four beautiful children a cute house our health and a great family.  we couldn't be more blessed to have what we have.  I'm so lucky to have such a great guy.  We went to see Peter Beinhot in concert it was a great night with sushi music and stars!
Off to the beach with some friends.  we had a great time eating and shopping and just being lazy.  I think this life would be so hard if we didn't have good friends.  We some one to laugh with and non judgmental shoulders to cry on.  Thanks friends for being there for me. 

Youth conference was a blast for the kids.  Tanner had such a fun time, funny thing was that it was an  Olympics for the special needs and yet Tanner only wanted to be apart of our Youth.  He did participate but wore a blue (for our youth) instead of a red shirt (special needs)  It cracked up the leaders that he is so predigest against special needs, to him he does not have anything wrong with him.  

Tanner dancing the night away at the final activity of the week.  He was so funny, but he was so tired from all the fun of the week that he left after just and hour.

What is the meaning of calling on the name of the Lord? Many assume that believing in Jesus and saying a form of a sinner's prayer constitutes, calling on the name of the Lord. The problem with that theory is none of the conversions under the New Covenant support that assumption. Not one time is anyone ever told to believe and say the sinner's prayer in order to be saved.

The apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost quoted the prophet Joel, Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (NKJV)

The apostle Peter preached the first gospel sermon under the New Covenant. Peter did not tell the 3000 converts to believe and say the sinner's prayer.

Peter preached the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. He preached Jesus as both Lord and Christ. When they heard this they asked Peter and the rest of the brethren what they should do?(Acts 2:22-37) Peter told them what to do. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost call on the name of the Lord and become saved?
1. They believed that Jesus was both Lord and Christ.
2. They believed that God raised Jesus from the grave.
3. They repented. Repentance is a change of heart. Repentance means to be converted so that God may forgive your sins. Repentance is to make the intellectual commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God. (Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38)
4. They were immersed in water (baptized) so that their sins could be forgiven.

How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost not call on the name of the Lord?
1. They did not say a sinner's prayer.
2. Not one person was asked to pray for forgiveness.
3. Not one single man was told to be baptized as a testimony of his faith.
4. No one was told that water baptism was a just an act of obedience.
5. No one was informed they were saved the very minute they believed.
6. Not one person was told that water baptism was not essential for the forgiveness of sins.
7. Not one person was told to be baptized so they could join a denominational church.

Jesus said he that believes and is baptized shall be saved. (Mark 16"16) Jesus did not say he who believes and says a sinner's prayer shall be saved.
