    The Wonder of You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the wonder of the Lord. I believe that wonder is a great definition of what it feels like to have the Holy Spirit moving in your life. It can feel almost magical, surreal, at times you may ask yourself “I...

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 WEB

    Adam and Eve disobeyed the Lord's one commandment while living in the garden of Eden and caused a rift between man and God for ages. God sent His only begotten Son Jesus to heal this, to buy us back. The perfect sacrifice, Jesus took all the sin of the world 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 that your great grandchildren will commit has already been paid for, even if they live on Mars. He is God of the universe.

    Still, 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).

    You may have many problems in your life, but a sin problem is not one of them. No matter what you have done in your life, simply say, 'God forgive me', and then try your best to stop doing it. Jesus suffered for You and 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: Father, forgive me of my sins and the things that I have done wrong in my life. Come into my heart and lead me from this day onward. Help me make the right decisions and open the right door for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning and happy Sunday! Don''t forget to "spring forward" today or you may find yourself unexpectedly late :). Thank you all so much for being part of RHM, for supporting us, praying for us, and participating in our online church. We are richly blessed by you all :)!

Martin Snyder I love your Bible fact of the day: when the disciples asked Jesus where they were going to come up with the money to pay the temple tax, He told them, "Go fish.".
