He died, but now He’s alive. It’s a miracle.
I’m remembering all the pain Jesus took unto His shoulders. All the discomfort and humiliation – just to make sure we have our place with God. He restored creation. After sin had decreated creation, He was restoration. He gave us the provision to be sin-less. He brought a never quenched light into the darkness. No darkness can comprehend His light. He sent a comforter, a friend, a still small voice, living in the depth of our hearts. His Holy Spirit dwells with us and we didn’t even need to fight for that. He gave us the easy job and took the hard one. He gave us the job of having to love Him. Just having to praise and glorify Him. And if you realise how great He is, you’ll realise our praises are nothing compared to what He deserves. Compared to how amazing, and awesome He really is. The human mind cannot even begin to understand how great He is. We aren’t worthy, but He made us worthy. He became Sin. Sin died on that cross. He became Sin so you and I could be spotless. Spotless. Without a spot or blemish. We have become new creatures in Christ Jesus. We have His love working in us. He unfailing, unending, unedifying love, made available to us. Forever. And ever. He did that. And not for His gain, but for our own. What kind of love is that? What manner of man is Jesus? That even death couldn’t hold Him. That even sin couldn’t phase Him. That the gates of Hell weren’t strong enough to keep Him out.
That’s my King. My Lord. The Lord of my life; That’s my Jesus. And your Jesus. The Jesus who fights for us. He is salvation.
And for all of that, I live in continual gratitude.
Thank you Jesus.
Peace&Love. Made available by the Blood of Jesus being shed for us.
Happy Mother’s day!
Everyone, be thankful for your mums because without them, you wouldn’t be here.
And those without mums, still be thankful for them. Be strong. You might be without her, but one day you’ll meet again, and that will be a joyous occasion.

Going to get straight to the point- we need to read God’s work daily.
We cannot ‘dodge’ sin by ourselves. It’s always there, to tempt us, to make us fall and without the Holy Spirit, we will fall.
Also so, if you continue to read God’s word, your relationship with God strengthens and you suddenly find it easier to not fall into sin.
So, I propose we read the Bible everyday. I cannot particular say, ‘read 1 chapter a day’ because people need to choose that for themselves. If other people choose it for you, it become less about spending time reading God’s word and more about, ‘Oh, I’m a good person because I read 4 chapters a day.’ It become less about your relationship with God and become more of a routine.
A good way to start is to get the Bible on your phone, since most of us (including me) live off our phones. Some of us have Smartphones, so go into the apps store, apps world or apps market and type in Bible. I use YouVersion but any type of Bible should work. They usually have plans which will get you reading the Bible everyday.
As you read the Bible you get closer with God and understand everything about Him.
