God's Perfect Sacrifice For Sin

Jesus Christ, Son of God, willingly gave of Himself, to be the perfect sacrificial Lamb, for the sins of the world. 

"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." (Ephesians 1:7)

All thanks and praise to our gracious God, for His love and tender mercies. He is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (See John 3:16-21 and 2 Peter 3:9)

Recognizing that Jesus had done nothing worthy of condemnation, one of two criminals, who hung next to the Lord, said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." 

And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." (Luke 23:39-43)

O, the blessings of God's grace! Whosoever will may come, receive a pardon and be set free from sin, become slaves of righteousness.

A Prayer:

Thank You risen Lord, for teaching us in the ways of God; for bearing our sins in Your body on the cross; for Your offer of salvation, and faith to believe. Draw souls by Your Spirit, to the Light that is You. May Your word run swiftly and be glorified. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.

Jesus is Messiah

His Kingdom is everlasting and His love knows no bounds. He is a righteous, faithful King; Savior of all humanity.

Related Bible Readings:

{Isaiah 61:1-3}

"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified."

{John 4:25 & 26}
The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things." Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."

A Prayer:

Thank You Heavenly Father for giving the world your Son Jesus Christ—for His birth, death and resurrection. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your faithfulness to do the Father's will, and for saving us. Thank You Holy Spirit for working in and through us, to regenerate our spirits and renew our minds, so that we may walk in obedience to the will of God, for we are a new creation. Thank You for Your anointing that empowers us to live godly lives in a sinful world, and to be effective messengers of God's grace. Thank You Lord God for bringing us into Your Kingdom, and Your Kingdom into our hearts. Praise Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Joy of the Lord is Our Strength!

The Joy within

As the fruit of joy remains in our lives, we will have the strength to endure with all perseverance the good fight of faith. “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For  consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.” ~Hebrews 12:2-3
