Jesus arose. Up from the grave He rose.
did not, could not and cannot defeat The One who is above all.
Through Jesus all is made right.
Jesus did the will of His Father.
How about you?
Can you say the same?
Have you finished …. Have you turned away from a life that has only caused heartache and pain for yourself, for your family, for all your loved ones?
We all have something that imprisons us or has at one time or another. Something that oppresses us, hinders us from moving on, forging ahead. We want to conquer, to destroy those walls that keep closing in tighter and tighter on our homemade prison, that bring physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual anguish.
Is it so hard?
Or is it so easy?
Some say it is.
Just do it.
Make the choice and do it.
Have we accepted His love?
Do we seek His guidance?
Do we believe ….
Born of the the Virgin Mary?
He died for our sins?
He gave His life for ours?
He was buried?
He rose again after 3 days?
Do we ask for His forgiveness?
Are we gathering with others who follow the teachings of Jesus -- follow and obey?
Do we friend ourselves with others who build us up, encourage us, show us how to live the life God desires for us?
Do we say NO!
to that which brings us done, which undermines our worth, drags us down into a pit of sewer mud?
Do we say NO! to online pornography?
NO! to homosexuality and promiscuity?
NO! to verbal and physical abuse?
NO! to abortion and other senseless murderous acts?
Do you think food and drink help build you up? Think again. It’s a mechanism we use to hide from our fears, but it doesn’t work. We get sick and then sicker. Our life is not going up, not improving, but going down. We are destroying ourselves and those around us.
Do you think it doesn’t matter? Does another say “It’s okay. I still love you.”
But it’s not okay. And do you love yourself?
No one is perfect. We have all sinned. We have all wandered down paths that caused undeniable pain and heartache. But none of us have to stay on the path that leads to destruction. We can move past the thoughts that keep us captive. We can ask God to help us. We can confess our need to be rid of this agony. We can surrender our lives to Him. We can rid ourselves of the desire to sin and instead live in the way of Christ. We can follow the path Jesus chooses for us. We can be free.
Come to Jesus
and Be Free.
