Greetings my friends. It is Sunday February 06TH 2022, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us celebrate this great new day of believing, following, trusting, loving, and being more like our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
I have what is known as writer’s block. I can’t think of anything to write for this edition of #SundayScripture. On top of that I’m leading my church family in Communion this morning, and I’m not sure what I’m going to say yet. I’ll have that figured out by the time I step foot onto the altar. (I actually wrote this yesterday, so I have a full day to prepare for it.)
Usually when I can’t figure which direction to go with Communion I go back-to-basics. I always love to hear (and preach) a good old-fashioned back-to-basics sermon, and that works just as well for Communion. (We observe and celebrate Communion once per month on the first Sunday.)
I think I’ll speak of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, and how He suffered for us on that day. Never did He sin. Never did He deceive anyone. Never did He retaliate against anyone. Never did He seek revenge against anyone. None of us can claim that, but Christ can. Christ was innocent. We are guilty. He had no sins of His own, so He carried all of our sins – past, present, and future – to the cross. He died a horrible death to pay the penalty for our sins forever. He did that for us. That allows us to be dead to sin. That allows us to live for what is right. We didn’t deserve it, but by God’s Grace – we are saved. By His wounds – we are healed. By His suffering – we are free.
God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV)
I think God took away my writer’s block. I have a Communion to prepare now, and perhaps my next sermon.
If you wish to learn more about the God I know then stay tuned to #SundayScripture. The best is yet to come !
Thank you for reading my blog for this day, and may:
The LORD bless you, and keep you.
The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
