The Cross…

April 27, 2015

What does the cross mean to you?  Some say it’s a symbol of Christianity, but let’s take a look at what it represents.

The cross was a torturous means of executuion but we believers have chosen it as a sign of faith.  To remove the cross from our teaching would leave our theology empty and powerless.

No one wants to consider the pain and sacrifice that Jesus endured on the cross for our sins.  We would rather hear of his love and provision.

Remember Love Heart, there is NO forgiveness without the shedding of blood.

“In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” (Hebrews 9:22, NIV)

Everytime you see a cross, remember it really was a means of torture.  Jesus was willing to sacrifice his life…the shedding of His blood, that you might have eternal life.

It’s was also an intrument of LOVE…~Debra 

April Fools’

April 1, 2015 — Leave a comment

th (3)April Fools’ Day is celebrated every year on the first day of April as a day when people play practical jokes on each other.  Some people can’t wait to try their newest joke or hoax on their family and friends.  I’m not a fan!

There is another day this week that some would have people believe is a joke, hoax, fairy tale or myth.  Easter!

A day where millions will reflect on the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ!  For a believer, it the very essence of our Faith.

Christ loved us so much that he was willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice and take our place on a cruel cross.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

It is no joke, He died that we may have eternal life. 

“He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.” (1 Peter 2:24, NIV)

Love Heart, we are ALL sinners and have come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).  No one is excluded, but there is hope!

 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Good Friday is the day we reflect on Christ shedding His innocent blood as an atonement for our sins, but…. Hallelujah, we have the joy in knowing we serve a risen Savior!!  He Lives!! ~Debrath (4)

 

Broken Heart??

At lunch I was listening to a commentary on the radio.  The man was recalling the death of his parents.

His mother’s death was a sweet time together. No words, there wasn’t a need for any.  She had loved him and been a wonderful uplifting example. He did however pray a blessing over her and thanked her for all she had done for him.

His father’s passing wasn’t a time of love and refection but the son still prayed a blessing over his father to which his father cursed him.

The man reflected on how this had hurt him but was reminded by the Holy Spirit even though his earthly father hadn’t blessed him but made him feel as if he’d come into the world as a negative…He still had his Heavenly Father!

You may have not had the best relationship with your earthly father but that doesn’t define who you are!  Remember if you are a believer, you are a child of the King.  And if you aren’t, you can change that!

 

God loves you with a love that is unconditional, Love Heart!  Just ask Him in and He can set you Free!!
