Who am I Lord, that I should hold anything against a brother in Christ. You have forgiven much, and I should do the same. Help me Lord, to fight against foolish pride. You are my way, my truth and the light that shines brightly.
“But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 May we not lose sight of the tremendous sacrifice, that was made on our behalf, to those who believe. We can celebrate on Easter, but as we remember what Jesus went through, May we few our devotion to him, for much was sacrificed by both the Father & the Son.
Happy New Year, brothers and sisters. Out with the old, in with the new. Can’t wait to see what the Lord will do in each of our lives and look forward to hearing about it, from each of you.
