    Thank You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being thankful. Jesus lived on Earth as our example, and He was so thankful and full of praise. No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

The Third Day

  • Behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from the sky, and came and rolled away the stone from the door, and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him, the guards shook, and became like dead men. The angel answered the women, 'Don't be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus, who has been crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, just like he said. Come, see the place where the Lord was lying. Matthew 28:2 WEB

    Ever since Adam and Eve disobeyed in the garden, mankind had been bound in sin with no way out of it. They had decided that maybe they knew what was best for them and that God was holding something back. It was something they thought they really needed and wanted, the forbidden fruit. Too bad it was poisonous and they both died from it later.

    Their sinful rebellious nature was passed down through the generations and was only broken when Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit. Jesus went on to live a perfect, sinless life as a man. Just as one imperfect man started it, one Perfect Man finished it. It all changed on the third day when Jesus walked out of the tomb. The power of sin was broken and if satan would have known what was coming, they would have never crucified Jesus (1 Corinthians 2:8).

    Jesus met all of God's requirements, lived a perfect life without sin, and then laid His life down for us at the cross. Through His sacrifice, mankind was restored to a right relationship with God. The veil in the temple was torn open making a way for us to come into the Holy of Holies, and all are welcome.

    Stop looking down on yourself and look to Jesus. He knows your name. Do not set your value by what anyone on Earth thinks of you. Jesus gave His life to set you free. The price of that is immeasurable and He would have done it just for you. Everything changed on the third day.

    Prayer: Father, I thank You sending Your Son Jesus to buy us back. Teach me the things that I need to know and let me see the world through Your eyes. Please walk with me and talk with me this day, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
