That's what Christ did for us you know. He gave us relief, a break, a removal if you will from the wrath of God.
We receive from him the gift of eternal life, all we have to do is trust him and turn from our sin, and voila... we have that everlasting relief from sin. That everlasting knowing that we don't need to face the wrath of God.
We just celebrated Easter.
I find myself filled with relief when Easter is over.
Partly because I'm married to a pastor who generally is tired from Christmas all the way through to Easter and I know that after Easter, that life will resume to it's normal ebb and flow and not be filled with a man tired from extra services.
Partly also because I tend to look up against Easter. Knowing the Christ needed to die for MY SIN. Me personally. He died.
And then on Easter I see him risen from the dead. His death wasn't permanent. He beat death.
And so I am filled with relief.
THAT is very good thing, is it not my friend? That relief of sin forgiven. A total relief. :)
The rules for Five Minute Friday are simple.
Write for five minutes on a single given word.
Don't worry on the editing and making things perfect. It's so NOT necessary.
Just write, enjoy writing.
Then go link up. After you link up take the time to encourage the person who linked up before you. :)
And go.... refreshed by not having to worry, for one blog post, about editing and making it all just so. :)
