The Perfect Sacrifice

"And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD to accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein. Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ye shall not offer these unto the LORD,nor make an offering by fire of them upon the altar unto the LORD." Leviticus 22:21-22

Look at the requirements here and relate it to us broken feeble people... We are/were blind, broken, maimed...everything the LORD said an acceptable sacrifice cannot be! Even the animal had to meet these requirements! But One came, perfect & complete to lay His life, a perfect Sacrifice for you and me.
"For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dea…

Pit of Despair

At some point in our lives we dig ourselves into a pit, mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually &/or financially. These are all interrelated! Compromise & sin go hand in hand. Soon, this pit becomes our "comfort zone", fear of the unknown keeps us quietly tucked in and the beat down has us so weak many give up! This is the pit of despair. There is hope! Hope in Christ! He is the One who pulls us out. Surrendering to His call & Will, laying down our powerless power trips, selfish ambitions and trading it for His beautiful cross.

See, there are others around you who enjoy your company in this pit! Often they will come against you with fierce discouragement to try to keep you focused on the pit, the depth, the width and not on Christ! However, "What shall we then say to these thin…

"why so much sorrow, why so much pain?"

Why so much sorrow, why so much pain? By Michelle James Given by the Holy Spirit
Some ask..."why so much sorrow, why so much pain?"... I tell you friend, it comes with being a daughter of the King.  You see, I have this peace, this hope, and love I want to share, but it seems so little rarely even care. They can be set free from this world and all it cares, but when I invite them to the cross seldom few meet me there. The Master has brought me through valleys deep and places I thought were beyond reach. He's taken me up to mountain highs and valley lows to streams far too beautiful for my eyes. I want to share this journey too...see, it’s why Jesus died for me & you.  Some say, the cost is too high and the road is too steep, the journey is long and my flesh is weak. They fail to see, we are not alone, as He provides every need from His gracious Throne. There's no burden to great for His tender care, He's near to all who will meet Him there. This place…
