Isn’t it Good Friday today? Human love runs out, that's why there's war and divorce. This is why you need God's selfless agape love. Listen,
“Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.” ~ John Stott
It was because of our sins that Jesus went to the Cross. But now the cradle, the cross and the grave of Christ are all empty. Yay God!
God has a great purpose for your life. He wanted and wants you alive today for a purpose. So many dead inside today and causing death. God can protect, He can help, He can resurrect the dead and he wants to use you.
False teachers that go against what the Bible says, both high profile and low, just seem to be multiplied on earth these days. No surprise really. Here’s one..
The Religious POPE DECLARES THERE IS NO HELL... but guess what Pope, that doesn’t make it go away. There’s still a hell to avoid and a heaven to gain as each one chooses in advance of going into eternity.
Like Pete needed it, do you also need to be restored? I’ve sinned, have you? God forgives. That's why Calvary happened -- no cost to you or to me. Greg Laurie asks.. Need another chance at Easter? Says...Peter’s biggest error was in denying the Lord three times before Christ was crucified. But Jesus forgave Peter and recommissioned him. This tells us three things about Easter.
1. Easter is personal. Notice the angel said to go tell the disciples and Peter. Jesus reached out to Peter individually. By the way, you can insert your name there. Go tell the disciples and _______. You know it, for Pete. And Easter is also for you personally.
2. Easter is practical. Why do you think Peter was singled out? Because Peter needed a special word of encouragement. Maybe you need that today as well.
3. Easter is powerful. The day and date ain’t powerful but Jesus is. He not only forgave Peter, but He recommissioned him for service again. And God will do the same for you. He will forgive you and then you can start this new relationship with Him again.
REMINDS US • God knew exactly what He was getting when He chose Peter. Jesus knew Peter better than he knew himself. And God knows you better than you know yourself. But He chooses you anyway. • Life goes so much better when we listen to Him and, most importantly, do what He tells us to do. • Easter is about hope, and because Jesus died on the cross and rose again from the dead, we have hope. He died so we could know that we would live forever in Heaven.
APPLICABLE ACTIONS FOR US ALL: Easter is about new beginnings. It’s about second chances. This can be the day when your life changes course and God takes your story and adds new chapters to it that are a whole lot better than the chapters you’ve been writing previously. But you must come to Him and say, “Lord, I’m sorry for my sin. I thank You for dying on the cross for me and rising again. Now I want to know You in a personal way.” You can learn more and do that at KnowGod.org
