You gotta love those moments when the true power of God's love overwhelms you! Those moments when you realize... God used that tragedy from your past to make today so much BETTER!
Scientists have determined that the Universe began in an instant. This vast, expanding universe began with what they call the Big Bang. This confirms what Christians see in the first verse of the Bible.
Feel the need for a miracle in your life? Then, Step out in faith! What kind of spirit does God give us? "God gives us a Spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." (2 Tim 1:7)
Our God is very powerful. Powerful enough to create the universe! When you accept Jesus, God fills you with His Holy Spirit. This is the very Spirit of God Almighty!
"Jesus is the one of whom the scripture says: ‘The stone that you the builders despised turned out to be the most important of all.' Salvation is to be found through Him alone; in all the world there is no one else whom God has given who can save us.” (Acts 4:11-12)
So as this Passover and Easter approach please set aside some time for sober reflection. Please reflect on the courage of our savior, Jesus Christ. I love this verse in the book of Hebrews, “For it was fitting that He, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.” (Heb 2:10)
So our challenge today is this—let’s take an honest look at ourselves and evaluate if we are living by Paul’s simple advice: “For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.”
