I'm currently preaching through the book of Romans on Sunday mornings at my church (and I probably will be until the Lord comes back).

This past Sunday part of my sermon was on these verses, "1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."

Then today I see these two stories: it's sad what men choose to worship rather than the Living God...

An ice formation inside a Morton, Texas, grocery store's freezer is prompting tears from people who see it and has apparently answered the prayers of some visitors, according to a Local 6 News report. Morton Thrifty Foods employee Alma Avalos said when she went to the back she noticed that some drops of water from the ceiling had frozen. As more and more people began to hear about the Virgin Mary, they started traveling in droves to see the ice. Some people cried when they spotted the ice and others said it answered their prayers. "I had a lump in my breast and yesterday when I went home it disappeared," a woman said. "I don't have it no more."

Man-made religious decorations are a common sight at this time of year, but the image on a tree in an Arlington man's front yard is natural and some neighbors have begun calling it a holy tree, according to a WJXT-TV report. Neighbors near Daryl Brown's Arlington home said a tree in his yard bears the image of Jesus. The likeness has created a buzz in the neighborhood and has many residents at a loss for words. "I see the face, eyes, and you can see the crown," said one neighbor. "I can't say what I feel, I just feel it," said another neighbor. The image was discovered a week before Christmas by a woman walking her dog, the report said. Overjoyed by what she saw, the woman shared the news with her neighbor.

  1. Hey my pastor is preaching through Romans too! He's doing it on Sunday nights though. Yeah he's been at it for a while and we're only in chapter 12. But it's a really good book to preach through. It has so much truth and so many promises.
