1 Peter 2:24 (NLT)
24 He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
By his wounds you are healed. So close to Easter, we can envision the wounds he endured for us. We know that, yet still struggle with sin – more importantly, we struggle with the self will that leads to sin. He knows that. He knew that when he died on the cross. He did that for us.
Hebrews 9:27-28 (NLT)
27 And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, 28 so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.
There comes a time when we’d like to not sin and just aren’t capable of it. How I wish I didn’t sin. No good comes of it. Eagerly waiting for him to take me home where I am free from this worldly me and can truly be the man God created me to be. I can’t wait to meet that person.
Isaiah 66:14 (NLT)
14 When you see these things, your heart will rejoice. You will flourish like the grass! Everyone will see the Lord’s hand of blessing on his servants — and his anger against his enemies.
Mark 11:24 (NLT)
24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.
I pray for the return on Christ.
