Word of the Day.... June 21, 2013

So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation. Hebrew 9:28

Jesus who never ever sinned took our punishment on the cross.  What a mighty Lord we serve that loves us so very much that He was willing to climb on that cross and take the punishment that was rightfully ours….

Imagine yourself being in court and you are about to be judged for every sin that you have ever committed.  Your whole life flashed across the screen in that courtroom and everyone saw every horrible thought, word and deed you have ever committed.

You knew in your mind that you were sunk.  You had absolutely no defense for the crimes that you committed.  Then right as they are ready to haul you off to take the punishment that you so richly deserve, A man stands up in court and offers to go in your place. They haul Him away to die in your place.

Jesus did that for every one of us on the cross at Calvary.  One day, the Lord Jesus Christ will return. And the Bible says, "To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation" (Hebrews 9:28). Are you ready for that day? Are you ready for His return? He is coming for those who are watching and waiting.

 Have you ever put your faith in Jesus Christ? Maybe you have religion. Maybe you have ritual. Maybe you have morality. But these will not get you to heaven. Only Jesus will. 

If you want a new life in Christ Jesus, ask Him into your heart today.  Simply pray this:  Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that You took the pain and the sins of world on the cross to give me new life. I ask You to come into my heart and to give me Your peace and joy. I confess that I am a sinner that I have gone my own way and have done wrong. Please forgive me for my sins. I receive You now as my Lord and Savior. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Help me to follow You and to serve You all the days of my life. Thank you so much for loving me, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.  If you prayed that prayer you are a new creature in Christ Jesus!  God bless you!!! ♥♥♥
