Forever, Author of salvation,
He took it all... every sin I've ever committed or will commit and He covered me with His precious blood. He did this so that My Father does not see me and my sin, but Him... without sin. If you don't understand why you need to believe in Jesus to enter heaven, here it is... God cannot be in the presence of sin. That's us folks... we can't stand in His Holy presence the way we are, no matter how 'good' we try to be. The only way to be with God is to be covered by the blood of Christ - and for that, you have to believe in Him.
Life will still be hard, trials will still come - life will still be uncertain.... but eternity... that will be certain.
Thank You God for Easter!
Oh, and I have to just say that I got to meet one of my blog friends this morning.. Eve came from RI to celebrate Easter here and I was so honored to meet her! God used Rachel's story to reach her heart and I have a new sister in Christ!! And so does Rachel ♥
