Since the beginning of time, the enemy has tried to destroy God’s people. It all started with Adam and Eve. Even though they sinned in the garden, God devised a plan to save them. Once they sinned against God, He didn’t just cast them away, but He loved them enough to help them. He has that same love for us.
From the beginning, the world tried to destroyed Jesus. Even when they witnessed the miracles that He preformed. On the day our Lord was crucified, I’m sure they thought that they had succeeded. After all, our Savior was dead. What they didn’t realize, however, was that He gave His life as a ransom for our sins. No one took His life. He wasn’t defenseless or powerless as He hung on the cross. The nails didn’t keep Him on the cross. It was love. He knew that we needed Him. So He endured it all for each and every one of us.
On that third and appointed day, Jesus overcame death and showed us that we can, too. He came out of the tomb. What a glorious blessing! Even death couldn’t hold our Savior. One day, as we close our eyes in death, we will open them in Heaven, and spend Eternity with our Lord. His sacrifice is our blessing.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to praise my Lord. Every stripe and every moment of agony was endured for us. My mind can’t even fully grasp His love for me, but every once in a while my heart gets to feel that amazing love.
Today, as the devil tries to stand in your way and give you a million reasons why you shouldn’t go to church, cry out to Jesus. He understands, and He has grace for your every need. God doesn’t expect us to overcome the devil on our own. That’s why God gave us Jesus. He will stand up for us, help us, and love us through it all.
Love and blessings,
