Scripture of the Day - January 31, 2012

Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

I would like everyone to really take this scripture to heart. Stop and ponder the great love of God for you. While you were yet His enemy He manifest Himself in the flesh and died for you. He shed His blood to pay the penalty, to pay the consequence, for your sins. While you cursed His name, while you went against His will, while you mocked and ignored Him, while you were yet His enemy, He died for you. He paid the penalty for you so you could be brought near to Him. 

Your sins had separated you from God but He made a way for you to be restored. He covered your sins with His own precious blood so you could be made righteous and enter heaven. It's not His will that ANY should perish. God's love for you is immeasurable. Supposing I was a poet I still could not put into words how wonderful His love is toward us. Why don't you bask in that love today. Cast all your burdens on Him and bask in His love.
