My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today As the Attach file is entitled: Book of Romans: Paid in Full; one can and could take the caption of a Roman soldier's tax statement and the tax collector holding the stamp embossed Pain in Full as a statement of our earthly soul salvation is paid with money and works. That is truly a misnomer of our soul being saved when it comes to spiritual salvation; Jesus paid the ultimate price with his blood and dying on a tree at Calvary when He said, "It is finish". Then on the third day He arose from the dead to prove that he lives. I pray that this most holy week will cause the sinners to think of Jesus' death and resurrection as his or her personal Lord and Savior to remove them after their genuine repentance of sins by faith in Jesus; accepting Him as their Lord and Savior, and immediately have the indwelling Spirit of God reside in them for eternity.

He points to his side, his hands, his feet, and challenges Justice to bring anything against the sinners whom he represents; he pleads his blood, and pleads so triumphantly, being numbered with them and having a part with them, that the Judge proclaims, “Let them go their way; deliver them from going down into the pit, for he hath found a ransom.” Our Lord Jesus was numbered with the transgressors in order that they migh…

Taunting Death

March 30: Taunting Death
1 Corinthians 15:50–16:4

My best friend’s mother, a dear family friend, died of Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). Over the span of three years, the disease attacked her nerve cells, starting with her hands and feet and moving inward to her vital organs. Every time I visited her, she would be changed—her cane became a wheelchair, and her warbled words were muffled into silence. Although she was fully alert, she slowly lost the ability to communicate her feelings and needs. In the end, only her eyes displayed the tumultuous feelings underneath.
Those who confront the reality of death or the death of a loved one don’t doubt their own fallibility. They are closely acquainted with the reality that so many strangely disregard. And they cling to the hope of the resurrection that Paul eloquently relays, and which the Corinthians were slow to understand and believe: “We will all be changed, in a moment, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, …
