Repent and Believe the Gospel!

Jesus said,"The time is fullfilled and the Kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe the Gospel"
The Gospel is that the Word of God became a man; Jesus, the only begotten of the Father, the Son of God, full of grace and truth, and lived in this world with every temptation that you and I face, and yet He never sinned and He gave himself to die on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. God made Him who knew no sin to become sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. He was buried in a tomb, and on the third day the Father raised Him from the dead. He was seen of above 500 witnesses after He arose and He ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven. He is there right now, alive, making intercession on our behalf to the Father. He is coming again with all the saints and all the angels in great power and glory and all who live and believe in him will be united with him and thus will we ever be with the Lord. I urge you to seek Him now, during this time while the long suffering of God is waiting, for the Day of the Lord is coming soon. He loves you and He will save you to the utter most if you will put your trust in Him.

Grit and Grace

From Webster's: Grit: Stubborn courage, determination
Grace: Beauty or charm of form, movement or expression, good will, favor, the love and favor of God toward man
There is a man who is the embodiment of true grit and true grace. You may be thinking of John Wayne,
but that's not who I'm thinking of. I know a little about John Wayne, but I know much more about another man who was facing incredible torture, oppression, abuse and death in the path that was laid out for him, yet he knew it was the way he had to go, the will of his Father. So he set his face like a flint to go to that place, and to give himself to that suffering, that he might accomplish a great salvation for many people.
And here in is the grace: His Father so loved those people that he gave his only beloved son to endure this suffering for them, even unto death, that they might live and join him in his heavenly kingdom.
One thing I believe about John Wayne; near the end of his life he met this man and experienced his wonderful grace. The man of whom I speak is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and you can know Him too.Jesus said, "Come unto me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest, take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly of heart and you shall find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
