Tag: Christ





Desire, focus, purpose, mission,

A cross

A week


Praises, palms, crowds, questions,

A man

A king


Preparation, covenant, body and blood,

An opportunity

A betrayal


Pleading, sweating, sleeping, rising, scattering

A garden

A kiss


Mocking, trying, beating, crowning,

A promise

A bruised heel


Washed hands, mangled flesh, broken heart,

A dark hour

A holy hill


Nails, splinters, hammers, jeers, gleeful serpent

A sorrow

A hope


Silence, blood and water, declaration, sealed tomb,

A burial

A completion


Earthquake, three days, visitors, empty tomb,

A question

A wonder


Living Savior, elated saints, fulfilled promise, bruised head.

A defeated serpent

A victorious Lord


Then, now, and always.


All Sales Are Final

20130430-194243.jpgMy wife and I were browsing in a second hand shop the other day when I spotted a sign by the cash register which read, “Due to the nature of our business, all sales are final.”

I just had to take a picture!

Life is that way, when it comes down to it. Sure, there are many times we get second and third chances. Do overs.

But there is a time in EVERYONE’S life when the “do overs” are all used up. Finished. No more chances. No more opportunities. The end of the sale, and the beginning of living with what we purchased. The sale is final.

I’m not attempting to scare anyone into “giving your heart to Jesus”! I’ll not try and coerce anyone to do anything they don’t want to do!

I’m “pro-choice”, in that regard.

What I’m simply stating is everyone “decides” how they will spend eternity. WHERE they will spend eternity. With WHOM they will spend eternity!

Our decision constitutes a sale between our Creator and us.

“And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment…” (Hebrews 9:27 NLT)

“And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.” (John 3:36 NLT)

“For it is my Father’s will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day.” (John 6:40 NLT)

A sale – a choice – where ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Choose wisely!
