It is me again......I am sure you thought the snow storm took me down or I drowned in a sea of chocolate! Not to worry we are all fine and recovering from a long winter like many of you.
I have soooooo many things to share with you and I know you are on the edge of your seat! But right now I have to share with you the GOOD NEWS I read about this morning in my quiet time
In Colossians 1 v 5.......Paul speaks of the gospel. The word gospel literally means "good news," and was used in classical Greek to express the good news of victory in a battle. If you can imagine yourself for a moment being in a long, grueling battle. Fighting day after day, year after year not knowing if you were winning or loosing. Then one day you hear the "good news" that the battle is over and you are on the winning side!
This is the message that is wrapped up in the gospel message. The gospel is the GOOD NEWS of Christ's victory over Satan, sin and death! Its message rings loud that God will forgive sins, deliver from sins power & give eternal hope.
I hope you have personally received the gospel message into your own heart. If you have then this truly is a GOOD FRIDAY & gives you reason to rejoice.
1 John 5:11 & 12.......God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
This weekend let your heart be one of thanksgiving to the ONE who conquered ALL that we might have eternal life & an abundant life this side of heaven.
