Happy Easter to all of you, who celebrate Easter today, from all of us Appeal for Purity Team!
Jesus has risen from the dead. He did it all for us. Because of what Jesus Christ did on the Cross, we became citizens of heaven. Praise Him! ///
Good Friday is the day we remember the cruel death of Jesus Christ.
Why is that Friday, the day Jesus was brutally beaten up and put to death, called Good?
It was the Friday God chose to pour out all His wrath on His Son. God was happy that His Son was the One to fulfill His will but at the same time, it was the day God the Father turned His face away from His Son, the One He loved. So it was a good but sad Friday for God the Father.
Hey, listen to this.
“Life is a fight for territory and once you stop fighting for what you want, what you don’t want will automatically take over.”
~ Les Brown
Know that you are stopping to fight for territory when you stop kneeling down in prayer before the Creator of the universe; stop reading and meditating His Word and stop fellowshipping with sisters and brothers in Christ. ///
“A fool is a man all of whose plans end at the grave. When the coffin lid closes, all his hopes are ended.”
But the one, who puts his faith and hope in the Son of God, does everything in this life in a way that brings glory and honor to Jesus Christ. So, when the coffin lid closes, his plans to glorify His Lord and Savior for eternity continues.
So, Paul said this to those kinds of people: “Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
What words? Listen:
“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
The above words can only be sources of comfort for those who do life in the here and now in a way that brings glory and honor to Jesus Christ. Otherwise they mean absolutely nothing. ///
