In Exodus 39 we learn that the priests wore a hat/turban with a gold plate that said: Holy to the Lord. And then Colossians 1 and 2 we know that we are made Holy to the Lord through Jesus Christ who was the ultimate sacrifice for all sins for all people everywhere!
There is no condemnation for those that call Jesus their Lord and Savior!
There is no striving for forgiveness--NO, we strive to show our awe and thanksgiving to our God who paid it all! With joy we walk through each day looking to grow and serve our God who paid it all.
We are being built up in Him as we fix our minds on the things in God's word--the things above worldly ways (Colossians 3:2).
Let's choose to focus our life habits and work as people who serve Christ Jesus with joy and reverence for His sacrifice not with an eye toward other people's opinions or accolades.
Let's choose to build our minds up on His word--to speak it, to believe it, and to be it every day!
Let's joyfully anticipate this Resurrection weekend--this Easter where The Lamb of God paid it all!
Let's pray: Dear Jesus God Almighty, thank You for this day. Thank You Jesus that we are forgiven and free in You. Thank You Lord for lifting the burden of sin and sadness from us.
Lord Jesus help us today to focus on Your Kingdom agenda, the blessings that we have, and Your Holy Spirit that dwells within us.
We give You all thanks and praise for Your love, mercy, sacrifice, healing, redemption, and restoration. Lord please lead us to the scripture we need to stand on today. Please give us God blessed eyes to see our circumstances and solutions the way You want us to.
Thank You Jesus for marking us as Your own--Holy unto the Lord!
We sing praises to Your name, Hosanna in the Highest, Amen.
