Man has two great spiritual needs. The first one is forgiveness. God heard that cry for forgiveness, and answered it at Calvary. God sent His only Son to this world to die for our sins, so that we can be forgiven! This is God’s gift to us-God’s gift of salvation. It is for everyone who reaches out and accepts the gift of Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord!
God also hears our second cry, the cry of goodness. He answered that at Pentecost! God doesn’t want us to come to Christ by faith, and let us live a life of defeat, and discouragement. Instead, God wanted to fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power; in order that the name of the Lord Jesus may be glorified in you! To the gift of forgiveness God added the gift of Holy Spirit. He gives us the power to be truly good.
If you believe in Jesus Christ, a power is available to you that can change your life, your marriage, and your relationships. God offers power that can change a tired church into a vital church. Unfortunately, this power has been ignored, misunderstood, and misused.
I want to thank God for the gift of salvation and the promise of the Holy Spirit! He has given us everything we need to live a life that honors Him! Have a great Monday!
