This month has brought me to my knees many times. I am thankful for God’s grace and mercy. The entire month I’ve been being lead to share God’s mercy with people thru life events. We lost a friend to the Center of Hope this month to addiction from overdose. As this tragedy was happening, I realized we must die in sin to be alive with God. This young man gave his life to the Lord about 6 months ago and was doing great but fell back into the lifestyle for a short time which ended up costing him his life on Earth. I told his dad that his son is in Heaven now because he became a child of God when he met his savior that night at The Center.
2 Corinthians 5:7 says …Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away: behold all things are become new.
I am thankful, that because of scripture, I know my friend is in Heaven and is with our Heavenly Father to live for eternity. God has blessed my friend, and He can you as well.
Will you let him in?
Romans 6:11 (NKJV)
Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
