“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:13
Have you ever been on a far-away trip?
Did you traveled for many long days?
Did it seem as if you could never get home,
And you almost lost your way?
It may have been across the sea
Or just across the road.
But the truth is that you seemed so lost
And far away from your home.
Once we were all far from God,
Who cares and who shows us love.
He wanted us all to come back to Him.
So He made the long trip from above.
He left His beautiful home in the sky,
To travel to earth to be born.
He put down His crown to pick up a cross,
And died there for all of our wrongs.
Amazing Fun Fact: Jesus exchanged with us His clean, pure self for all our old ugly sins so we could come near to God.
Questions: Sin is anything we think, say or do that is not pleasing to God. What things do you need to give over to Jesus so that He can give you a clean heart? What are some things that are not in Heaven?
