The bible says in Romans 3:12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there
is no one who does good, not even one." Listen to what Jesus says....Matthew 19:17 "Why do you
ask me about what is good?" Jesus replied. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter
life, obey the commandments." Yet if we break even one commandment....the Bible says
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. So what becomes of us.....a people who rebel against the Creator.....we don't respect him.....we show no love for Him.....we say we do but our lives prove us wrong.......we can't even keep the commandments.....We're in trouble....how do we get reconciled with God......Well we can humble ourselves and acknowledge that we are in desperate need.....we cry out to God and say HELP ME.....you see the Lord is Holy....we are not apart from God....God loves us so much this is what He did.....the Father sent his Son Jesus.....the Scriptures say...."For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
This weekend Christians all over the world (the world God created)
remember.....rethink...recount....what the Lord has done for them. It critical that we not only remember it as a story but embrace it and dive into the Lord's hands.....recall that what we could not do for ourselves (be saved)...He has done it for us at the CROSS.....He waits for us to acknowledge our need for Him........He looks down and sees a people who need direction....a people He loves.....a people He calls to......a people He died for! Ask the Lord to forgive you of your sin.....it's what separates us from Him......He waits for you....He loves you!
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6
God bless you!~Liz
