“When you are praying, if you are angry with someone, forgive him so that your Father in heaven will also forgive your sins.”

Mark 11:25

 

DOUBLE JEOPARDY

 

  ‘ Double Jeopardy in American law states you can’t be charged twice with the same crime.  Ashley Judd starred in a film back in 1999 where she was wrongly convicted of murdering her husband.  She suspected he wasn’t killed but staged his death to frame her and when she found out she could walk up to him in Times Square and shoot him in the head and there wasn’t a thing they could do about it, she burned with hatred to find her ex to carry out such a plan.  The tagline of the movie was “Murder isn’t always a crime.”

 

   Being April Fools Day, don’t be fooled that we can live by the letter of the law and not the heart of the law. 

  As Easter approaches we need to reflect on the real reason Jesus came for.  He came to die for us.  All our sin was nailed to the cross with Him, He bore our transgressions on His body, He took our guilt, our shame, and the penalty that was meant for us.  Out of His love for us, He became sin for us, so that those who believed in His name, for those who received Him as Lord would never die but be born again into Him.

   It did not end in His death…He rose again to defeat death and its hold on us, not in physical death but the spiritual death that comes from eternal separation from God.  With Christ we are made right with God, we are at peace with God, our home is in heaven with our Maker, we are redeemed and restored.

  Because of the cross we are no longer accused and our sins are no longer held against us.

I pray this Easter you can take the time to reflect on what God has done for you, may you know Him personally, either entering into and/or further developing your relationship with a personal, loving God.’ DF
