That was delicious!
Monday’s Music Moves Me
There has been a lot going on around here and I will post images later. We took a 10 day road trip to the Texas Hill Country. This time of year parts of Texas burst into bloom with blue bonnets, Indian paintbrush and other wild flowers so my wife and I took a road trip in which we drove around 1500 miles in ten days and just enjoyed the scenery. More about that in an upcoming post.
Okay this week is a “Your Choice” week and 4M so I have decided to do a belated Easter celebration post. In all of Christianity there are two major events that are identified with the faith, celebrating the birth of Christ at Christmas and celebrating His resurrection on Easter. Yesterday was Resurrection Sunday and I have selected a few songs that celebration the power of Christ to forgive sin, overcome the grave and prepare a place for all believers to spend eternity with the Savior.
Regardless of the world view that we may have of ourselves, scripture tells us that all of us have sinned and are unworthy of entering heaven. The penalty for our condition is death, that is an eternal separation from our Creator when we leave this life and step into eternity. These truths are found in Romans 3:23 and Romans 6:23. 2 Peter 2:9 tells us that this situation is not God’s will, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” This is the very reason Christ was born, lived, was crucified and rose from the dead. Christ and Christ alone has provided us with the only alternative to an eternity of spiritual death. We must acknowledge our current situation, realize that we are in need of a Savior, confess that Christ is that Savior and ask Him to forgive us and provide us with the gift of salvation. Here are a few songs that celebrate that gift.
