In 1 Corinthians 10:13 It declares that hardships & trials come into our lives, not to break us, but to build & strengthen us that we might persevere and to overcome! Our time on earth is a "security deposit" for the glorious life to come! James 1:12 declares "Blessed is the man who ENDURES temptation, for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him". The scripture, 1 Corinthians 4:1-2 states we are commissioned to be God's servants on earth. As His stewards, we are to be found faithful, persevering and presenting God's Kingdom...knowing we are only visitors on this earth! We are expected to be loyal to His call as His deposit on this earth. May we hear these words from our Lord & King, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord". (Matthew 25:23).
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
