The kids and I were watching the animated version of “The Ten Commandments” and I occasionally stop the movie to explain what is happening. It was at the part where Moses was gone for 40 days and when he came back the Israelites had built a golden calf and was worshiping it.
I began to explain to our kids what was happening and our 5yr old daughter said with a dumbfounded look, “but it’s a deer.” lol, It did look like a deer with horns, but the point is that even a 5yr old can see no value in giving praise and our prayers to an animal.
Are you giving your life over to something that is not real? Today can be your day to turn from that falsehood and give your life to a God that is alive!! Jesus was sent to shed his blood for yours and my wrongdoings against God the father. He then became our mediator between man and God. If we believe in Him, we will not perish but have everlasting life. That is amazing and I urge you to consider your life today and where you will be when you die.
John 3:16 explains Gods love for us all, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Philippians 3:9 tells us, “not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ–the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.”
Be encouraged readers. Your life is not a mistake, you mean so much to God that he died for you! Celebrate today by accepting that promise.
