    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEBWe have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good."

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.
