Death?

 
Josh and the boys were blessed to be able to tell their Grandma goodbye as they watched her leave this earth the other evening. 
 
 
Death and end times has been a topic in our home a lot lately.  We've heard more about V's life in Ukraine and things he experienced.  Wow.  We have lots of discussions, they may be short talks, but they are full of meaning! 
 
What will happen when we die?  What does the word soul mean?  What about the end of the world?  When will Jesus come and get us?  What about those left behind?  What about that amazing book of Revelation?
 
Have you ever pondered your future?  Your death?  Your eternity? 
 
"For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23
         Ps 53:1b "there is NONE that doeth good."
 
Compared to God we are all sinners!  God hates sin, so the payment of our sin is death.  Death spiritually!  Death being forever seperated from God, now that's hell!  We are all going to hell if we don't "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else." Isaiah 45:22
 
THERE IS HOPE IF WE LOOK TO GOD!!
 
'But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8!!!!!!!!!
 
I put exclaimation points after this verse, because this is it!!!  Christ took our sins, even while we were still sinning!!!!
 
 "For if, WHEN WE WERE ENEMIES, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled (to change mutually, i.e. to compound a difference) to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."  Romans 5:10
 
 We shall be saved by His life!!!!
He stood in the gap between God and me!  That huge gap that no one can jump but Jesus. 
 
All we have to do is "confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9
 
  Faith like a child.  Simple.  But... we must put down our pridefulness, our "I can do it without Him" attitude.
 
Only when we do this will we experience true peace.
"Therefore being justified (regard as just or innocent) by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1 
 
What can I do for you today? (Please email me and let me know.)  How can I pray for you or meet a need that you may experience Christ's love? 
 
 He loves you...
