Jacob had ruined his life. He had lied to and cheated his family, and now he was about to pay! When his brother threatened to kill him, Jacob fled for his life, and while running away from his sin, he ran straight into God! Surprisingly, God met Jacob in love, and it changed his life. Sometimes we also try to run from the consequences of our sin, but we must remember that God’s love is greater than our sin! He longs to restore us to Himself if we will just surrender.
The Difference Easter Makes
In a world of false advertising and empty promises, it’s no wonder people are skeptical. Products promise to improve our lives, but very few live up to their claims. The Bible also makes some pretty outrageous claims of how the risen Lord promises to change our lives, but the question remains… “What difference does Easter really make?” Because Jesus conquered sin and death, our past can be forgiven, our present can have meaning, and our future can be secure!
