It is FINISHED…..
Remembering our Jesus Christ in the CROSS is not seasonal but it must be our LIFESTYLE…
For we were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your body(1 Cor.6:20). Since you died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, why, as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules: "Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!"? These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings. Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.(Col.2:20-23)
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.(Col.3:5) So we must now have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.(Col.3:10)
There is no greater love than the AMAZING LOVE of God for all of us---- A LAMB OF GOD who takes away the SINS OF THE WORLD!!!
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.(Col. 3:15-17)
Prayer: Oh, My Lord.. I put my whole trust in what YOU, My God was doing for me when Jesus died on the CROSS. I believe He took the punishment for my sin. I received the forgiveness that God is offering to me. And I thank Him for the relationship this now gives me with Him. I made a decision that I will live each day in this personal relationship with God and commit myself to share this truth with others. Amen…
