Day 2: Blood Sweat & Tears


It takes

BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS

at times

to PRESS FORWARD

when you want to go backwards

or just stand still,

because who wants to

strive harder

to get to a place that you don't think you

will ever arrive

unless there was a good reason to go.

Unless we are PRESSING FORWARD

because of the ONE who was LEASHED to the cross

to UNLEASH each one of us by HIS BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS~

"Therefore, since we have been justified [that is, acquitted of sin, declared blameless before GOD] by faith, [let us grasp the fact that] we have peace with GOD [and the joy of reconciliation with HIM] through our LORD JESUS CHRIST (the MESSIAH the ANOINTED).

Through HIM we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace

in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand"*

Life just got easier.

LIVE UNLEASHED~

"Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] GOD [the manifestation of HIS excellence and power]"*

Even though PRESSING FORWARD IN HIM may take our own

BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS~

"And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;

and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity);

and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]*

Why would JESUS PRESS FORWARD to get on a cross to shed

HIS

BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS?

So we wouldn't have to.

"Such hope [in GOD'S promises] never disappoints us, because GOD's love has been abundantly poured out within our hearts through the HOLY SPIRIT who was given to us" *( Romans 5).

Therefore

LIVE UNLEASHED

because of

"MY JESUS" (listen to the song below)
