Note from Bev,
Spring is in the air and the. We just celebrated the death and resurrection of our Risen Lord. The Grace and Mercy that we have been given through the Love that Jesus portrayed upon the Cross is a gift that can never be re-paid. We are not every asked to do so either. All we are asked to do is allow Jesus into our lives and allow him to be our Lord and Savior.
Ps; 8 starts off with “O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens…..goes on to read in vs 3 &4 says “when I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers the moon and the stars you set in place, what are people that you should think about them vs 5 “yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor……….. then you go to 1Corth 15:27-34 talks about Christ being the ultimate authority over all things on earth and when Christ died on the Cross and rose again He took the power over death, Mark 11:9 : They cried out Hosanna Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord…. In Mark 11: when Jesus rode the colt that never had been sat on, it showed everyone again that All things came under subjection to Him even death. All things came in Gods timing not mans.
Hebrews 2:6-8, “What are people that you should think of them…..yet you made them only a little lower than the angels …. You gave them authority over all things…….God the Father and Jesus the Son has given us authority through his name to do mighty things in His name.
It all boils down to this. God gave his One and only Son to die a horrible death on a cross for us, so that we could have forgiveness of our sins and live in Grace and we have the privilege to carry that truth to others in this world. God will not tolerate sin forever, he will not let his name be shamed, The Bible is quite clear we need to live right and live what we talk. Let us not stand up and say that we are a Christian if we are not going to stand up for what it means. We must love the sinner but hate the sin. God is a just god and a merciful God, our nation is at a very dangerous crossroads; keep God? Or throw God out?…. What are you going to do?
We need to pray for our country that God will somehow get a hold of their hearts and minds of our leaders and the leaders to come. We need to speak up and out loud Jesus Christ is Lord and He is alive forevermore.. Let us not be ashamed of the Gospel for it is what sets us free and gives us hope of eternal life!!!!
We serve a Mighty Good God, one that loves us unselfishly and unconditionally, beyond our compression. But Jesus paid the price for each one of us to live a life free of sin, that we can have peace beyond our understanding, all we have to do is ask Jesus into our lives to be our savior…….
Be ready to bless someone with the Blessings of the Lord this month. Look for opportunities to share with someone the Love of God.
Have a Blessed month
