Jesus Fulfilled The Law

Guys, I am not good at blogging, but you have all probably noticed that. I can't promise I will get better at it, but I can promise I will keep writing on here. Just not as often as I should.

I have been reading through Leviticus and it isn't a fun book of the Bible let me tell you that, but there is one thing I have learnt to be thankful for more and more by reading it. That is Jesus.
There were so many laws and rules. Some of those laws were crazy and weird. If you broke one either you were unclean, had to sacrifice an animal, or you were dead. Did you know if Jesus hadn't come yet we would all still be doing that today? Jesus paid for all of our sins. He was the sacrifice for all. He fulfilled the law.

 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
Romans 10:4

Sin is still sin, but now we are free from the law now. Like I said, some of those laws did not make sense like not eating pork. Can you imagine a world without bacon!? Another one was not doing anything on the Sabbath which is Saturday. We are now free from it. We are free from all the bloodshed of animals. Because Jesus was the perfect Lamb for all.
So I encourage you all to read Leviticus just so you know how thankful you should be for Jesus. It has sure made a difference in me.
God bless you all and have a great Saturday,

You Can't Cover It

How are y'all doing? I have been wanting to write this post for a while now, but I couldn't find a good Bible verse to go with it. I hadn't prayed about it and so I did finally and I found a verse within seconds. Prayer works people!!!
At youth we have a annual thing we do. Banana night. Guys, I hate it but in some weird way I really enjoy it as well. All of the games revolve around bananas and so did the lesson.
For our Bible lesson first, we were all given a banana. We had to open it and cut it into 16 pieces. Once we had done all of that, we had to put it back together with toothpicks, painters tape, string and pipe cleaner. Sounds weird, right? I had no idea what we were going to learn.

But we are all like an unclean thing,
And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags;
We all fade as a leaf,
And our iniquities, like the wind,
Have taken us away.

Isaiah 64:6

We have all sinned. I think I have mentioned that a few times now. Anyways, sin ruins us. Even after we become a Christian we still sin because we aren't perfect. You can try to cover it all up and sometimes you might foul some people, but they don't know what is on the inside of you. "You can't judge a book by it's cover." That quote, to me, can be used to speak of good for people and bad. Some people are the nicest things ever and you can't picture them doing anything wrong. The truth is, they are a sinner just like you. Some of the bananas that were put back together looked really good. But all the mush and slime on the inside was not nice at all. You can never hide your sin, and you can never truly fix it. God will forgive you, because once you are saved you are forgiven of all sin. You don't sin for the fun of it though. Because being a Christian is you becoming more and more like Christ everyday. You can't stop yourself from sinning but you can choose right more often. Like, you can choose to cover the truth or just tell the truth. You can say no to a party you know is not going to be good rather than saying yes. So choose right more and more so that there are less bruises on you and less mush inside.
God bless you all,

God Can Handle It

Oh my goodness it has been like 3 or more weeks since I last posted! I am so sorry guys, today I will change that. I hope you are all doing good. It is February 1st today, to me January went by really slow but according to EVERYONE I talked to it didn't. Anyone else with the same problem?

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."  James 1:2-4:

In Sunday School we are going through James, well we just started, and two Sundays ago we went over these verses.
We all have trials. We have all gone through them, we have all experienced them big or small. People say God never gives you a trial that you can't handle, well it is the opposite. God never gives you a trial that HE can't handle. We are weak and don't know how to handle hard situations. God is strong and He knows what is going on. You always have to lean on Him because you would mess up a situation that is already hard enough. Always give the problems you have to Him.

Digital Print 8x10 1 Peter 5:7 Cast All by DaughterZionDesigns:

He knows what you are going through and He will go through it with you. Give Him your troubles, your worries, your hard problems. And you don't just go through them for nothing...
They are to make you have stronger faith. They are to make you a better child of God. Because if life was all rainbows and lollipops, how would you learn to trust God better? Your faith would never grow without troubles. It sounds weird but really, why would we need God then? God sees the whole picture. He sees how it starts and how it will end. We can't see it and that is why it is hard for us. When you trust fully in God though, there is no need to fret about everything.
I hope that made sense and that you all sort of get it.
God bless you all,
