My Name is Love

Pray Pray Pray

This is a great post from Roye…

I thought about this same thing today…I spend so much time pondering & wondering about situations, then I fail to follow through & ask God to do something about it. I spend way too much time thinking & not enough time asking.  Life isn’t a study in philosophical issues, it’s a relationship with a person…Jesus Christ

Good Friday

A few years ago, I was born on “Good Friday”…but what really makes this Friday “good”…? 

Well, because Jesus made it so. 

My thoughtful wife presented me with an unexpected Easter gift yesterday, after I had finished this post.  It was a t-shirt with a cross & a Bible verse…Hebrews 10:10.  It says “God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.”   She had no idea what I was blogging about, in fact, she bought the shirt a few weeks ago.  I think that’s pretty amazing.

Anyway, if you read further in chapter 10, you’ll see God was not pleased with animal sacrifices, since the blood of bulls & goats could not take away sins.  So He provided a body to sacrifice, His son Jesus.  Thankfully, Jesus was obedient unto death, so by giving up His life, He forever made perfect those who are being made holy.  God promises never to remember our sins again, & we have become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

That’s pretty good…
