Rise early…

Sometimes I think God has a goofy sense of humor. I was trying to get some rest but it seems that He wants me to write here…NOW! I know I’ll get some sleep, just not as much as I’d like.

I suppose I’m in good company because Jesus often got up before sunrise and prayed in a solitary place. God loves each of you who read this and all of those who just surf on by and don’t look at it at all. He sent His Son to die on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. Can you believe it? God loved us enough that He sent Jesus to Earth to live as a human under the Law and to bring the good news of God’s love to His people and yet they rejected His message and Him.

Of course, if they had not rejected Him the rest of the world wouldn’t know Him. So…that’s a plus. But, just thinking about the pain and anguish that Jesus endured on the cross and during the flogging with a whip with nine cords that had glass and metal stuck to it…I can’t understand a love so deep. The Creator, our Redeemer, the Angel of the Lord’s Army, the Counselor, the Living Word….all of these were and are names for Jesus the Christ and He went through more pain than any of us can imagine and He did it because He loved us? It brings tears to my eyes just thinking of His suffering.

I pray that those of you who read this will seek Him out as your Savior because the time is growing short. Please don’t turn away from His call on your life regardless of how young or old you may be.

The only way to heaven is by giving your life to Jesus and believing in Him for your salvation. There is no other name which can save you except by believing in Jesus Christ for your eternity with Him.
