About You

You are LOVED by God. There is nothing you can do, or can't do to make him love you more or less. He loves you because he loves you. Because you are His child.

More then your past
Worth it
A treasure
You matter.

Thinking of Jesus.

I'm having a hard time this week NOT thinking about Jesus. It's not really that I love him more this week than any other, but the fact that it is Easter week, and many many people celebrate Easter but do not know Christ bothers me and I just want people to know!  Of course what he did on good Friday and Easter effects me every single day of the year, not just during lent or holy week or Easter day, but every single day.
If you say you love God, or your pray to God, but don't know his son, or deny his son, that is an insult to God.
I want to say this in the most loving way possible but I know it's not going to come out that way. lol.
If you don't know Jesus, well, you really need to.  If you don't know Jesus you are not going to Heaven, and that's a big deal. I know a lot of us don't think about eternity too much. We think more about today and what's going on right now and what we need to get done in the here and now, but friends, do  you really want to spend eternity in hell?  Eternity is a loooooong time!
If you don't know the story, because of Adam and Eve we are all born sinners, and we will all die.  God created earth and man to be perfect. But when Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan and disobeyed God there had to be a consequence. The consequence for sin is death.
For the wages of sin is death” Romans 6:23
God promised Adam and Eve that he would send a sinless sacrifice to take the punishment they deserved.
Have you ever heard the term "BC"? Before Christ? Well, before Jesus Christ, people had to sacrifice lambs for their sins. They would repent and use the blood of the lamb as their sacrifice for their specific sin.
God did eventually fulfill his promise, and he sent his only son to be the sinless sacrifice for all of us. Yes for YOU and your sins.  It doesn't matter how good of a person you think  you are, you are not sinless, and if you are not sinless, you go to hell unless  you accept the gift of salvation from Jesus. Jesus died to save you from your sins. He took your place, he suffered, was mocked, beaten, whipped, nailed to a cross, for YOU.  It's a GIFT. From God. What is the catch? There isn't one. You either accept Jesus as your savior and make him Lord of your life or you deny him and you go to hell. This is big stuff here. So if you don't really know what Easter is all about, Good Friday  is the day that Jesus suffered and died for you. Easter is the day he rose from the dead. 
I pray that if you don't know Jesus yet, that you will after today. If you have questions about it, ask! Me or anyone else you know that knows Jesus as their savior.  
All I can picture in my  mind is him being whipped, on his knees, bloody, and carrying his own cross, for ME, and yet, there are days that I find it hard to make the smallest sacrifices for him. I feel sick to my stomach thinking about it. 
Jesus suffered for me and for YOU, because he loves us. More to come...............
