    Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I don't make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time!" When he saw that, he arose,...

The God of the Universe

  • John answered them, "I baptize in water, but among you stands one whom you don't know. He is the one who comes after me, who is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I'm not worthy to loosen." These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. The next day, he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:26'29 WEB.

    Adam and Eve disobeyed the Lord's one commandment while living in the garden of Eden, and it caused a rift between man and God for ages. Then God sent His only begotten Son Jesus to heal this gap, to redeem us. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice, and He took all the world's sins onto Himself when He died on the cross.

    Just as one man created the wound, one perfect Man healed it. The word "world" in this verse is "Kosmos," meaning universe. Jesus took away the sin of the universe. Though He did this over two thousand years ago, every sin your great-grandchildren will commit has already been paid for, even if they live on Mars. He is the God of the Universe.

    Yet, forgiveness is not automatic. You actually have to ask for it. "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:8 WEB).

    You may have many problems in your life, but being forgiven is not one of them. No matter what you have done in your life, simply say, "God, please forgive me," and then try your best to stop doing it. Jesus suffered for You. He has already paid the price because God thought you were worth dying for. You are worth dying for. Never look down at yourself, for He would have died just for you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please forgive me for my sins and the things I have done wrong in my life. Come into my heart and lead me from this day onward. Please help me make the right decisions and open the right doors for me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those following the Creation Photography weekly challenges, here is this week's theme from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Isaiah 40:8 "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever." ~ If you hadn't guessed yet, 'Officially Fall' will be our next fun-tastic theme and is open wide for your creative interpretation. My photos this week display the changing colors, flowers' last blooms, and active wildlife in our area as Autumn comes rolling in with gusto. I am eager to see your photos too!!! Stay ever blessed and enjoy your week, everyone! Here is the link: Creation Photographers
