    For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn't hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth....

    For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? But if we hope for that which we don't see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24 WEB'Oh I don't want to face tomorrow. I have a bad, bad, feeling about this.' On and on we go into a spiral of sel...

    Baby Jesus from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about “Who is Jesus?” I feel that we take it for granted that people actually know that much about Him. In the world we see Jesus as a baby in a manger, then crucified on a cross. The life of Jesus seems to span...

Cheap Sunglasses

  • One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us! But the other rebuked him, saying, Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? Luke 23:39–40 ESV

    Three men were crucified together at a place called Golgotha. The One in the center was Jesus, the Son of God. There was a convicted criminal on His left and another His right. One of the criminals ridiculed Jesus while the other defended Him. Both criminals were caught, convicted, and crucified. What was the difference between the two criminals?

    Here is one difference: One saw himself as redeemable and the other did not. Even though the Son of God was a few feet away and would have forgiven them both, one could not see it through his pain-filled life. Each time I have been hurt in my life, or hurt someone else, I grew a little more calloused. It became a little harder to believe that God cared about me, that He still loved me. I was looking at my future through cheap sunglasses and thinking that the future, would just be more of the past. These lens distort your vision.

    It is important that you realize that whatever you have done, it is not too late and that you can be redeemed. You are the one that makes the difference, and makes the choice. One thief was saved, and one was not. It was their choice. Have hope. God loves you and He still has a plan for your life. Do not let the pain of the past keep you from seeing the open arms of Jesus today. He chose you, now choose Him.
