Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12: 12 ESV
Jesus helps us examine our lives. He is the way to the Father. He carries burdens and nurtures our FAITH. He teaches to TRUST and find STRENGTH from the Father. He provides PEACE from compassion and love. He helps us recognize we are forgiven and sees when intentions are good.
We all need a faithful friend who helps us stay focused in truth; ONE who cares with compassion and shares the love of God. Jesus wants us to have a relationship and understand what’s already been done for each one of us.
He took the sins of the world. His resurrection provides HOPE as we consider His sacrifice and love. He took the pain of the cross. It’s hard to fathom His suffering. But as we humble our hearts with thanks, we become more aware of how deeply we are valued and loved. We realize WHY we must LOVE HIM SO MUCH MORE…
As we ready our hearts to welcome Easter, Christ helps us recognize why we need to be restored. It’s never too late to allow ourselves to breathe in the fullness of GRACE and welcome gratitude.
Jesus gave His life for each one of us. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. But if we turn from our selfish ways, admit we are weak, acknowledge Him as Lord of our lives and make room for Him to dwell, we will honor God with the love of our faithfulness forever...
We mustn’t turn away from the One who has done so much for us. HE IS the way to the Father. We won’t know the love of mercy and grace unless we welcome Christ and recognize His power to save. We must put our HOPE in Him and gratefully choose to TRUST.
Dear God, thank you for mercy and grace. Thank you for the sacrifice of Your Son. Show us the beauty of forgiveness so we will be reminded we are valued and loved. Thank you for our faithful friend who gave His life for us. HE is deserving of praise! We will welcome Jesus with appreciation for all He has done and never forget who has the power to save. Thank you for Your love for us. It is everything we need to be led toward a place of wholeness. We are grateful! Amen
