    But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won't he much more clothe you, you of little faith? Therefore don't be anxious, saying, 'What will we eat?', 'What will we drink?' or, 'With what will we be clothed?' For the Gentiles seek after a...

    For there were many in the assembly who had not sanctified themselves: therefore the Levites were in charge of killing the Passovers for everyone who was not clean, to sanctify them to Yahweh. For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed them...

Nailed It

  • He said to Jesus, 'Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.' Jesus said to him, 'Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.' Luke 23:42 WEB

    Three men were stripped naked, beaten, nailed to a cross and lifted up for all to see and mock. Two of the men were condemned thieves; the other was Jesus. While they struggled to breath, one of the thieves railed against Jesus and seemed only concerned with the moment. He had no concern or guilt over what he had done in the past and wanted Jesus to get him down where he could continue his life of sin.

    The other thief rebuked the first and said that they were getting what their deeds deserved, but that Jesus had done nothing wrong. Then he asked Jesus to remember him when He came into His kingdom. This thief acknowledged what he had done was wrong, and then he spoke to Jesus.

    Both men were guilty, both men spoke to Jesus, but only one man was saved. After a life of crime and now while he was getting what he deserved, God had mercy on him because he took the time to ask. God could have laughed and said, 'You worked hard to earn this, now enjoy it.' Instead, while breathing out his last few breaths, he turned to Jesus and was saved.

    God is merciful, and regardless of what you have done, it can be made right. Regardless of how long you have done it, it can be wiped away. A life of sin can be removed in a moment, even during your last breath. Though our sin is like scarlet, He will make it as white as snow (Isaiah 1:18).

    It is never too late to make things right with your maker, but like a wise investment, the earlier that you begin, the greater the reward that you will gain. When you fall, get back up and take another step. God's door is wide open, and all are welcome.

    Prayer: Lord Jesus, forgive me, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. Please guide me from this day forth and lead me into all that You have for me. I want to live my life for You and make every minute left count. In Your name, amen.

The scene at Calvary on that darkened afternoon, three crosses, models the fate of all mankind.  In the middle, we are offered the costly gift of salvation, in Christ Jesus.  On either side of our dying and soon to be resurrected Savior, two choices regarding eternity spent and where.  On one side, a repentant world asking to be forgiven, receiving paradise, those seeking Christ.  On Jesus' other side, the prideful rejecting remainder, forever fallen, eternal separation from God our Father.  The message of these three crosses is eternal and affects us all.  We all must and will choose, willingly or, unwittingly.
