He is risen! Jesus defeated death! His body isn’t here on earth in a tomb or in a grave. Matthew Henry beautifully writes: “In all our enquiries after Christ, we must remember that he is risen; and we must seek him as one risen.” We should find immense comfort in the fact that the body of Jesus cannot be found here on Earth. His body never suffered the decay death brings. Jesus is alive. He is alive and living, then, now, and always. Praise God! JESUS IS ALIVE! It’s time to c
Jesus didn’t have to die. At all. He was the embodiment of God here on Earth- and God certainly won’t die… yet Jesus chose to die for us. He consciously made that decision every single day He was here on this Earth with us! Jesus’ life isn’t just a neatly-wrapped Bible story showing us the perfect example of patience in suffering: His life, death, and resurrection is EVERYTHING. Without His sinless, blameless life, He would not have been a perfect sacrifice. Without His arres
Romans 10:9-13 is a straight-up recipe for gettin’ saved! If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives g
How many times do we have to hear it before we finally realize that GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF US! It’s repeated so often throughout the Bible- give your burdens/cares/struggles/yoke/etc. to the Lord and He will take care of you. Maybe, just maybe, this command is repeated so much because God wants us to believe it! And maybe He knows the kind of people we are, and that sometimes it takes a whole lot of repetition for His words to not only stick in our thick skulls, but for us to
Peace of mind truly is a gift; there's nothing we can do in this world to secure it for ourselves. No amount of money, no relationship, no thing can offer us peace of mind. Only Jesus has that gift to give. What a blessing and what a relief! Insecurity is a thing of the past! There is no reason to be fearful or troubled or worried by what could go wrong and remember that with Jesus leading our way, we can always have peace of mind.
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood. Refrain:
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long. Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels, descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. Per
“And do everything with love.” E. V. E. R. Y. T. H. I. N. G. Yikes! That’s a pretty heavy command! Can we truthfully say we do everything with love? This is such a profound statement that commentary isn’t at all necessary. This is most likely the single greatest challenge any of us will ever choose take on- do everything with love. Every thought. Every decision. Every action. Every word that flows out of our mouth. Do Everything With Love.
When you get right down to it, offering God every single bit of our trust is a little intimidating! We have been bruised and broken by people we thought we could trust; it’s not an easy task to overcome that hurt and pain, and to learn to trust fully and completely. God promises, however, that it will be overwhelmingly worth it to put all of our trust in Him- not just a scoop here and dash there, but to consciously choose to trust Him in every situation, all of the time. It’s
