Resurrection Day

Jesus died a horrible death. He, God, became sin for us and died, sacrificing Himself in our place. Salvation is a free gift but it does come with a price. Your life will never be the same if you sincerely ask forgiveness for a sinful life, accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and dedicate your life to Him.

Satan is alive and doing rather well in our society. We have devalued human life to animals (we were created in the image of God), we have killed our young, sacrificing them to the god of convenience and called it our "right", we have created a state of the poverty and dependance and we have all but taken God out of our American lives. America is not a Christian nation. We have not been one for almost 50 years.

I do not blame Satan. He is following his nature. He is a liar and a thief. The truth is not in him. I do not blame non believers. They, for the most part, are trying their best to survive this life without the One who loves them and wants the best for them.

I do blame myself-- for not praying daily for my friends-- for not diligently studying myself approved-- for not laying down my life for my neighbors-- for not answering the call when He asked me to step out of my comfort zone, speak truth to the captives, lay hands on the sick and raise the dead.

Jesus, help me to do better.
