Today I would like to thank and praise God that He is our Redeemer!!! It is because of the work He has done on the cross to be bearer of all our sins past, present and future!!!! Turn from your sinfulness, repent because His Kingdom is at hand and He will be returning soon for His faithful!!! Oh loving and kind Abba, You made a Way for us to spend eternity with You!!! And that Way is Your Son – who sits at Your right hand and intercedes for us and upon His ascension to heaven has sent His Holy Spirit to dwell in our hearts!! Lord I pray that all who read this will accept Your work on the cross if they haven’t already and will know You as I know You. Thank you for Your love for humanity and your mercy grace to me a sinner – but saved by Your grace!!!! Hallelujah our Redeemer lives!!!!!!!
