Draw Near

“And through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of His cross.” ~ Colossians 1:20

During this Passion Week, we remember the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross for all of us. We were once separated from God, by sin, but Jesus made a way for us through the shedding of His blood. We were destined for an eternal death with no peace, no rest, no hope, no God, but Jesus got off of His throne, set down His Godliness, and came to Earth as man.

I urge each of us this week to draw near to God. Don’t allow the things of this world to make Jesus’ sacrifice worthless to you. Don’t allow the temporary things of this world to draw you away from the eternal presence of God Almighty.

Jesus felt so strongly about us being separated from Him that He was whipped and beaten until He was unrecognizable. Jesus looked down upon us and saw that we couldn’t bear the punishment that we deserved, so He bore it for us. Don’t allow the things of this world to cause you to miss out on receiving your free gift of salvation. Your debt has been paid in full, don’t try to change that. Don’t stay stranded at sea, when God promised to pull you to shore.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Draw Near.
