The love and grace of Jesus has given mankind the opportunity for redemption. Jesus' sacrifice provided us the opportunity to be "reborn" into a new creation. We are no longer sinners, but we have been reconciled to God to be His children. We are now given the chance to be joint heirs with Christ! It is up to you!
Resurrection Sunday: Through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we have been given salvation, hope and truth. The Father desires relationship with us not just today, but all 365 days of the year. Our journey doesn’t end at salvation; we have a choice to make every day to walk on the path God has put in front of us. Even though it comes at a cost, God paid the ultimate sacrifice. He has given us the strength to make the choice to die to our flesh, be a light in this broken world, and to fix our eyes on Christ every day.
Today, we are bombarded with words and information. They come in forms of music, movies, social media, etc. But when you peel back the surface, whose voice is truly behind what you are receiving? Is it inspired by God or is it a distraction?
The words we speak can and do impart life or death. Have you ever gotten in trouble because of something you said? The Bible states that out of the heart the mouth speaks, so what's influencing your heart? Whose voices are you listening to? What are you allowing to shape your heart? What are the words you're choosing to speak? It is a choice.
In life we all have issues and face problems. Some because of our own personal choices, and other times due to spiritual matters out of our control. We have to have the courage to identify and face them, and allow Jesus to save us and set us free.
