Just a simple thought for us today: Sin is the very thing that brings sadness to a life, and the victory over sin is the very thing that brings real lasting happiness here, and eternal life hereafter.
Yesterday we had a picture drawn for us of two men in the very presence of the life changing blood as it flowed at Calvary; one on the right side of Jesus and the other on the left side of Jesus. One man chose to die in his sins, while the other accepted eternal life from His Lord.
"Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus." --Romans 6:8-11
May you experience the redeeming love of Christ today and every day. Because He is alive today just as much as He was two thousand years ago, and He is alive on this Monday morning just as He was yesterday morning. Let's continue to celebrate our life in Him.
