Easter and Good Friday are fast approaching. It is the time when our Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered excruciating pain of a cruel whip tearing His flesh apart, of being stripped and unjustly vilified, of being dragged from place to place, a crown of thorns painfully pushed into His skull. Our Jesus was betrayed by one of His own apostles for thirty pieces of silver. As I meditate on what happened to Him, I am picturing also the babies who are undergoing excruciating pain as they are murdered in the womb. They too are sold for blood money at Planned non-Parenthood.
Why is it still continuing? Are we so shallow that we convince ourselves to believe the lies of the enemy rather than the truth? God created a miracle, a new life, and we are so jaded as to not just deny it, but to murder it? We are so selfish to not want the inconvenience of a child, so we kill it?
My heart breaks for the women who have had abortions in the past and are suffering for it now. They believed the lies of the enemy. Know, my friends, that Jesus died for you; He has forgiven you, now you must forgive yourself. Accept Jesus gift of redemption, and ask Him to be Lord of your life now, if you have not done it before. His grace will be with you to help put your life on track for fulfilling the potential God placed in you at birth.
Ephesians 1:7 AMP
In Him we have redemption [that is, our deliverance and salvation] through His blood, [which paid the penalty for our sin and resulted in] the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin, in accordance with the riches of His grace
Easter is the time of new birth. The whole earth rejoices! Flowers are peeking their heads up through the ground. Baby bunnies and other new born creatures are appearing. It is also the new birth for our souls and spirits. Jesus sacrifice brought you and I the opportunity to accept His redemptive grace and become new people.
2 Corinthians 5:16-18 (NKJV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
When we embrace Jesus and His Lordship over our lives, we do indeed become new creations. This is a great time my friends to choose a new life of grace and love. God loves us so much, He sent His Son to endure much so we could gain eternal life. That begins the second we turn to Him and embrace His heart's love for us. It is a wonderful life indeed! Come, my friends, choose love now.
