This morning I got around slow and didn't make it to Sunday school, but made it to church. Not sure what happened, I got up on time, read my Bible and had my devotion time and then I lost track of time and before I knew it my hair was still wet from the shower and it was time to leave for Sunday school. So I told my husband I would see him in church.
This afternoon I baked Amish Friendship Bread. It is yummy. I put starters in the freezer for later use. One starter makes two loaves.
I found the recipe on http://allrecipes.com/. Look for Amish Friendship Bread I. There are several recipes. You can find the starter there too. This starter is good for white bread and sweet breads.
This evening we had the Lord's Supper or Communion. It is a special time to me, for I always go back to the day the Lord changed my life. The day I surrendered to Him and turned away from who I was; a hateful, angry filled, foul mouthed, smoking, drinking, two-faced, conniving woman.
The amazing things is He loved me anyway, loved me when I didn't love Him. He loved though I denied Him over and over, trying to live my life on my terms, in my way.
Does this sound familiar to you? Do you want to know peace like you've never known?
It's simple, really, here's what you need to know.
- God's love is revealed in the Bible.
- We are sinful.
- Sin has a penalty
For the wages of sin is death. ~ Romans 6:23
In the same way criminals must pay for their crimes, sinners must pay a penalty for their sins. If you sin you will pay the penalty of spiritual death: you not only will die physically but you will also be separated from our holy God for eternity. The Bible teaches that those who choose to remain separated from God will spend eternity in a place called Hell. From my personal experience, I can tell you Hell is very real. God showed me Hell and where I would spend eternity if I denied Him again. It is unlike any bad or horrible thing you may face on this earth. I don't have the words to truly describe it but there was a knowledge of being separated far from God and loved ones, there was a torment that is indescribable and the sounds of the others there, moaning and crying out for relief, such sorrow...
- Christ has paid our penalty!
- Salvation is a free gift
- Christ is at your heart's door
- You must receive Him
