REALLY Begin Lent!

Nothing But The Blood of Jesus

 But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

We’ve all become unclean, and all our righteous acts are like permanently stained rags. All of us shrivel like leaves, and our sins carry us away like the wind.

The Lord says, “These people worship me with their mouths and honor me with their lips. But their hearts are far from me, and their worship of me is [based on] rules made by humans.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the person who does what my Father in heaven wants.

“faith comes from hearing the message, and the message that is heard is what Christ spoke.”

Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

blood of JesusBLOOD AND ASHES

Many think that the good that they do

Will gain them entrance,

Make them new.

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Fake piteous rags clothe the proud

With delusions grand

And voice loud!

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

 Men’s traditions and rituals

Jostle for station,

Habitual.

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Their lips may beseech in  God’s name;

Empty, unheeded ,

All in vain.

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust;

This our destiny?

What’s the ‘must’?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Jesus, forgive me any false piety.  I come to you a beggar with nothing.  It is even only in the power of your presence that my hand can even raise to receive anything from you.  Give to me and enable me to receive, Oh, Giver of all good things!  In Jesus’ name, Amen

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
