FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE……

.His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.casinomilate.info  John 3:16-17

I”m sure many of you have seen or heard about the TV show, “Intervention.”  Where family members and friends of drug addicts and alcoholics intervene and confront the addict.  They tell them about their concern and fear  for their life and how if they continue on the path they are on, they will face a very early death.  Most of them have children who are being damaged emotionally from the experience of watching their parent behave in very strange and unusual ways,  just a very sad and dysfunctional lifestyle.

The intervention brings an opportunity to choose life.  To go into rehab to be cleaned up and restored to a sober life.

Well, Jesus IS our spiritual intervention.  We are all sick with sin.  God so loved us that He sent His son Jesus to die in our place so that we could be saved from death.  God has always been intervening–trying to warn us, revealing himself to us, speaking to us through people in our lives, but mainly through HIS WORD.

You make the choice to believe and get on the narrow path that follow in Jesus” footsteps or reject him which  is like rejecting rehab for an addict.  To love the world and the sin you are in,  more than you love God is the broad road to certain eternal death.

To choose life is not easy.  You may relapse at times but you must be connected with a twelve stop program. Spiritually speaking, that would be like reading the Bible, praying and building your personal relationship with God to begin receiving the Holy Spirit through baptism.  God wants to make us whole and sober us up to what our true identity and purpose is.   He is the GREAT DETOXER! 

So as we look to the cross this Easter, let us reflect on the wonderful gift of salvation and be revived  and renewed and receive the healing power of His love, through Jesus Christ, our one and only Risen Savior.  Love and Blessings to you all, Traci
