THE STING!

Our preacher used the story below in his EASTER sermon.  I think this is such a great analogy of how GOD protected and SAVED us by sending JESUS.  Thank you Lord for JESUS!

Once a boy and his father were driving along the road when a bee flew in the window. The boy got very upset when he saw the bee buzzing around his head and he began throwing his arms around madly, because he was allergic to bee stings! The boy was very frightened of the bee. The father quickly grabbed the bee!  He held it for a bit and then let it go again.  

The bee began to buzz around again and the boy was again frightened.  The father told his son, “It is OK, you are all right.” Then he opened his hand to show the boy the stinger was stuck in his palm.  His father had allowed the bee to sting him. He had taken the sting and had taken the danger out of the bee. 

Jesus Christ did the exact same thing for us!  He let death “sting” Him instead of us.  He did this so we could live forever and never die.  He took the danger out of death.  We can know that once we die, we can be with our Father in Heavan.  HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!! (not a question, a exclamation!)

The Bible tells us about that “sting” being taken out of death by Jesus Christ:

“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of
death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God,
which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(I Corinthians 15:55-57)

I love how God did that for us.  He is just like a father who would take a sting for his child.  He did that for us!

What an amazing gift we have in EASTER!  

Again, thank YOU LORD for JESUS!

Daddy

DADs are so important.  I know I didn’t create some post on Father’s Day about Father’s Day, because for the most part, I don’t want to get all sad about not having mine here anymore.  I mean, I can do that any day of the year!  I really do miss mine so much.  With the recent passing of a close family friend, it just brings back all the memories of when my daddy died.  It was so quick, he was gone and we were all so devastated.  We didn’t get to say a long or even a short good-bye.  Looking back, it was better that way.  At least, for me.  He was my cheerleader.  He always told me everything was going to be ok … no matter what.  So, if there was a long illness in the end, it would have been so out of sync with the relationship he had with all of us.  I do regret so many things I didn’t tell him or ask him, but that’s another blog.

I’ve been going over some songs for the friend’s funeral and this song just hit me.  It’s the perfect song about a dad.

For those of you out there that are true DADDYS …that truly take care of your children and love them with an unconditional love only a parent can give…THANK YOU!

Happy late Father’s Day!
