Passion Week

As we reflect this week on the last steps of Jesus on earth, we need to remember why all of the events occurred…so that we can be forgiven. There was a purpose and a plan that God put into place for this holy week, this week where we see the passion of Christ played out in actions.
We read that Jesus went to the Father asking:
 .
.
 
Then Jesus left a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.
Matthew 26:45
The only way for you and I to be saved was through the blood of Christ Jesus, the pure and ultimate sacrifice. Do you ever think about that priceless sacrifice Jesus made for YOU?
Jesus then took action on the plan. The plan our Heavenly Father had to be united with us in heaven one day. There had to be a sacrifice for our sin.
 
Our actions speak louder than any words we can speak. As you reflect on these last few days of Passion Week, think about your actions and the actions of Jesus.
 
Do your actions reflect a follower of Christ or a follower of the fads, trends of this world?
Do your actions reflect the passion and love of Jesus or of your own agenda?
 
Remember Jesus chose to walk into the city that Palm Sunday, Jesus chose to remain silent as He was falsely accused. Jesus chose to follow the plan of our Heavenly Father…to His death.
A painful death….for you and I.
 
My dear sister, you are loved by a Father in heaven, you are precious in His sight, you are FORGIVEN!
.
Now go act like it!

From the Head Down

Much of what we do in our Christian life comes from what we are taught through the Bible, discipleship, mentoring and our Pastors at our home churches. We learn what is important and essential in our life and then we are to go out and apply it to our life/ministry/business.

A Lost Art

With all of our connections on social media, texting and emails we have lost the art of genuine friendships and relationships. You know the ones where you stop your busy day and grab coffee or lunch with a friend, for no other reason than you just want to spend time together. Unfortunately we are seeing even some marriages loosing the art of connecting as a result.

This has truly become a lost art in society in general. We have become too busy being busy to invest in a true relationship.

Find Joy in the Fellowship

We know the Bible tells us to gather together and build each other up…

 

“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 NKJV
