He held my sins in His hands as the nails were pierced through… wow! So many thoughts come to mind, but it humbles me to think that Christ suffered such pain and disgrace for me. I need a Savior – I’m the first to admit it. To say thank You just seems insufficient and unimpressive. I understand now that the Lord doesn’t want fancy words. He wants my life to reflect my relationship with Him. Actions really do speak louder than words.
What does the resurrection of Jesus Christ mean to you? When God raised Christ from the dead (yes, He was dead – not stunned), He paid our sin debt! There is no greater love than that! This means that through Christ, we are able to claim complete VICTORY! God doesn’t do anything halfway. The price is paid, and all we have to do is claim the victory. Accept the sacrifice He made at Calvary and live like the blessed child of God you are.
We are blessed and even though temptations and yes, sin sometimes gets in the way – we know that Christ will help us get total victory over all of it. He didn’t save me just to leave me standing in a cold, dark place. He saved me to guide and direct me closer to Him. We will mess up sometimes – whoppers of messes sometimes! But we know whatever comes along, the sacrifice that Christ made for us is greater than our sins.
Should we linger on the sins we’ve committed? No. Satan would like nothing better. Lingering on the sins is polarizing! Ask God to forgive your sins – and keep moving, leaning on Him to help you out of sin and closer to Him. Trust that God forgives you and move on. There’s not a thing you can do about yesterday. Just make tomorrow better with God’s help.
Jesus Christ is ALIVE – ready to help us live in total VICTORY!!! Will you seek Him? There’s not a sin He can’t forgive. There’s not a temptation He can’t overcome. Plea the blood of Christ over it, know it’s covered, go on to the next thing. Praise God for the victory through the resurrection of Christ! Hallelujah!
Not that I want to mention April Fool’s Day and Easter in the same sentence… but someone challenged Lucinda to write a poem about it. And, well… she nailed it! Take a look at this:
Isn’t that great? There’s no FOOLIN’ about it! Happy Easter, everyone! 🙂
