Let's take an honest look at ourselves and find out why we do what we do. Money decides how we dress to get the "perfect job". If we seek out certain people because of their connections and influence, then money decides who our friends are... If we work extra to maintain a lifestyle, then money is deciding how much time we spend with our family. If we go to church where the main emphasis is on prosperity and focus on me getting my needs met, then money & self are my motives, not what God is saying to the nations. We are living in an age that "the world" is rejecting the teachings of Jesus. Jesus says in Matthew 6:33 "Steep your life in God reality, God initiative, God provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met,"(The Message) meanwhile the world is saying seek first financial security, and then you will have both time & money to give into the kingdom of God...Read what Jesus says in the rest of the passage in Matthew 6:25-32. Here is the truer truth, the deeper thing, THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN FOR MAN TO DISCOVER THE TRUTH IN THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST, NOT SO MAN CAN JUSTIFY HIS BEHAVIOR OR COME UP WITH ANOTHER DOCTRINE TO SATISFY THE LONGING OF THE SOUL. Let's all get real with God... Amen.
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
