For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:7, 8 ESV)
As I think of this verse it’s truth resounds in my head. Christ died for me even when no one would give two cents for me! He understood the concept of ride o’ die way before it was popular. Today is not a day of mourning but a day of rejoicing!
His death brought me freedom and hope.
If you’ve thought “I’m not good enough”, “I’ve messed up too much”, “my life is too full of sin”, the Bible says “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:23, 24 NIV)”
That means YOU, you have been justified, you were died for, you were loved by the creator! Jesus took the payment that was meant for us and spared us from death. In other words we did the crime and he paid the time.
Today I invite you to meditate on these truths.
1. You were died for
2. You are loved
3. There is an invitation for relationship with Jesus
And if you need to hear it again from someone else watch this video: the Death of YOLO
then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. (Genesis 2:7 ESV)
As I am learning more and more about the earth and it’s process I am learning more and more about the truth of God. Genesis 2:7 rang a bell in me.
The earth’s crust contains most of the 100 or so chemical elements discovered thus far. Only eight of them make up more than 98 percent of the crust. These are, in order of abundance, oxygen, silicon, aluminum, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. In addition to water, we are composed of about 6 percent minerals: calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, magnesium and iron – do you see a pattern here?
There was no way that the author of Genesis 2:7 knew that our mineral makeup was similar to the earth’s.
The idea of us being composed by different minerals wasn’t around until 330 BC when Aristotle made the hypothesis. The periodic table wasn’t composed until 1869 by Mendeleev. Genesis was written in 5 BC!
It amazes me to think of a creator who would get down and personally create a human from dirt and breath his very own life into him! God wants to have a relationship with you!
So think about it, look it up! God and science are compatible! True science proves that God exists and that the Bible is infallible and inerrant.
I just saw a video that was completely amazing!

Ladies – please stop settling for the first person that comes along. If he doesn’t love God what are you doing with him? Please save yourself the heartbreak! I am tired of seeing great Christian girls date sleezy ungodly guys…guys please ask some of our girls out so they can’t use that as an excuse to date these sleezy guys…
Men: stop dating girls as trophy wives. physical attraction should play a part, but it shouldn’t be the most important part! Your love for God should be the biggest thing that y’all have in common….
I know waiting is hard – especially when everyone around you is dating, engaged or married – but it will be so worth it! I promise!
