🌸Jesus said, "I Am the Gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have Life, and have it to the full. John 10:9-10
🌸He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become the children of God--children not of natural descent, nor of human decision of a husband's will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 1 John 1:10-14

Instead, He entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly. He Himself bore our sins in His body in the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.

They shouted back, "No not Him! Give us Barabbas!" John 18:36-40

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.

And surely I Am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:16-20

🌸God's Plan For All People-Acts 17:24-31
❤️The God who made the world and everything in it is The Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples made by human hands. And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He Himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.
❤️From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and have our being. 'As some of your own poets have said, 'We are His offspring.'
❤️Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that The Divine Being is like gold or silver or stone--an image made by man's design and skill. In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now He commands all people to repent. For He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice by the man He has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising Him from the dead. Acts 17:24-31
❤️For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20
🌸I pray that today will be The day that you will truly know & Believe in God and be saved by His One & Only Son, Jesus Christ. May the Hope, joy & victory because of be yours! Happy Easter!!
