Recently, our nation has been gripped by man’s inhumanity to man.
Certainly, this was never a part of God, the Father’s, plan.
Back in time, when the human family had only first begun,
Abel was killed by his brother, Cain, in the first murder ever done.
God said to Cain that his brother’s blood cried out to Him from the ground.
Others, too, have died wrongfully–their blood has become a loud sound.
Jesus Christ was sent of God, to teach of love, forgiveness, and brotherhood.
And, on Calvary’s cross, He died for us all–but some haven’t yet understood.
Only God can change someone’s heart, by Christ Himself entering in.
His sacrificial blood is the powerful voice that speaks “redemption” for anyone from sin.
P. A. Oltrogge
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation….” Ephesians 2:13-14
“…to Jesus, the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.” Hebrews 12:24
Praying today for the Floyd family and other families now affected by recent events in the U.S., and for our country, other nations, and for Nigeria, in particular, where over six hundred Christians have been killed this year simply because of their faith.
Thankfully, we also hear of many other reports of God working mightily in people’s hearts to bring them to repentance and faith in His Son, Jesus.
“…’Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts.”
