I AM BACK, though I don’t want to try to take any glory away from the REAL star of the show today. JESUS HAS RISEN. Gosh this day y’all. It is so easy to get caught up in being too busy this time of year to really be able to COMPREHEND what this day stands for. He ROSE from the DEAD. Think about that for a second… WHAT??? I mean, its just.. I become speechless when I really think about how astounding that is. Especially when you think about the fact that He did that for YOU. Little ol’ you. You think you aren’t important?? Well try not to think that for one more NANOsecond, because Jesus rose from the grave for you. He wanted to take all the blame for all of the bad things you’ll ever THINK, DO, or even CONSIDER, and die for them. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for YOU, just so that He can see you again in heaven for ETERNITY.
These heavy words… ultimate forgiveness, eternal life, never ending love… they a little hard to grasp but that is because these are NOT apparent in our culture today. If a guy/girl messes up KICK em to the curb, there are better fish in the sea. This life is not forever, SEIZE the day, there is no day like today. DIVORCE is more common than a lasting marriage, let alone eternal. Some people aren’t even getting married at all because the thought of spending a life with someone doesn’t sound fun. SO THINK ABOUT THIS. Jesus wants to be with you forever AND YOU MESSED UP. You were the guy/girl that should have been kicked to the curb, and He STILL wants you. SAY WHAT??? I mean if that is not a testament to how much He loves us then I really don’t know what is.
I challenge you to really take some time and say a prayer, just THANK Him for being so awesome. For being so much better than what ANY of us could ever even hope to be.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NIV
Not only an act of love but THE GREATEST act of love.
Christmas is huge, but this day, EASTER–its huger. No we couldn’t have Easter without Christmas, but we couldn’t have an everlasting eternal BLISSFUL life with Jesus in heaven if it weren’t for Easter.
Christ says that all you have to do is accept this gift of eternal life and believe, and you’ll be there. You’re in. It is out of believing that your faith is strengthened and you strive to be made more in His image. If you don’t think you have accepted Christ before, or you are worried that you won’t be in heaven: just pray this.
Dear God, Please forgive me of my sins. I believe that you sent your son for me, and that he died for me. Thank you so much for that beautiful gift, and for sending your Son to deliver it. Thank you for saving me
THANK YOU JESUS!!!!!!!! Thank you for being everything I haven’t been and what I never will be. For having never ending patience and for your never ending forgiveness. Thank you for loving us.
