Oh Lord, I am so grateful for the cross. Thank You for dying for our sins and paying the price for them that we couldn't. It is because of what You have done, is that forgiveness and mercy has been ushered into the world. There is no more need for animal sacrifices, but a sacrificial heart to You in faith. In our humility we come to You, because You are our Savior and King. Our confessions are drawn up, that You would make us whole. We know that we cannot get any better by doing our own things or listening to others, for we need joy and fulfillment that lasts. People can tell me about their paths in life, which may yield much money and wealth, but that is nothing compared to salvation in heaven. What You offer, the world cannot match. And the same goes for the lusts of the flesh. The things that we can find fulfillment through is never good, unless it comes from You. You are able to give us clean hands and a pure heart, which is what we need in life. This desire to follow You is able to lead us away from sin and unto Your light. Thank You Jesus for giving me new found direction on how to live out my life. I find great joy in my time with You in prayer, even when I repent I am always uplifted afterword's. You are able to see through my life and give me peace, even when it is hard to find. This is what we need more of. That is why I am honored to obey You and find enlightenment in Your Words, the Bible. May these words of scripture be upon my heart at all times, in order to shield me from the enemy. Lead me from temptation, oh Lord. I need Your armor in my life. I trust in You, God. I love You so much. Amen.
Luke 24:45-47 (KJV)
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Some people are closer to God than others, however everyone falls short. And when we do, we come to God and repent.
This message of the cross and resurrection is so important to our faith in Jesus. Without this knowledge and understanding, we would not be where we are today and surely not be saved. Continue Reading
