Paid In Full

18 For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors.  And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.  1 Peter 1:18-19

How do I do it?    
How do we ever pay Jesus back for all He has done for you and me?  
Jesus freely chose to die for yours and my sins--the ultimate sacrifice so that we could have Heaven with him for eternity.  There is no greater love than this.  It is out of complete humility and grateful hearts that all of us give back to God the way we do.  We dedicate our lives to glorifying God in our thoughts, speech, and actions, telling others about Him and what He's done in each of our lives.  We lift each other up in prayer, and we praise Him with everything we have.  

As we go through this Holy Week together, and as we gather with loved one…

Yes, Jesus loves me!

You are loved!
"God loves you!" How many times have we heard that and said: “That can’t be true for someone like me. Not after all the things I have done. How can God love me when I don’t love me”? Sound familiar? Why is it so hard to believe this truth of scripture?

Many times in our past we have been rejected, been told we don’t measure up, or told outright we were not wanted or loved. In a world filled with hurts habits and hang-ups, if told this often enough we will begin to believe it. It is easy to believe that we have no value when we “mess up” so often or so badly. And if others close to us don’t love us, or if we don’t love ourselves, can a perfect all powerful God love us? The answer is a resounding yes!

Isaiah gives us a vivid picture of God’s unmovable unchangeable love in Isaiah 54:10: 
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covena…

Fill My Cup

Have you ever been doing something for so long you just get tired?  Take running for example.   What are some key components to running a long distance?  
You need to: dress the part!  You can't run a mile in clothing that's too thick or doesn't breathe, and you want to have good shoes on! No flip-flops!"Therefore, put on every piece of God's armor so you will be able to  resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm." Eph. 6:13  hydrate and fuel your body before and for the extent of the distance."But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again.  It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life." John 4:14 get and give some encouragement as you go.  You're not in this alone!"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help…
