12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

As we approach Easter, here is food for thought from A Gentle Thunder by Max Lucado:

“You may be decent. You pay taxes and kiss your kids and sleep with a clean conscience. But apart from Christ you aren’t holy. So how can you go to heaven?

Only believe. Accept the work already done, the work of Jesus on the cross.

 Accept the goodness of Jesus Christ. Abandon your own works and accept his. Stand before God in His name, not yours.

It’s that easy? There was nothing easy about it at all. The cross was heavy, the blood was real, and the price was extravagant. It would have bankrupted you and me, so he paid it for us. Call it simple. Call it a gift. But don’t call it easy.

Call it what it is. Call it grace.”
