Jesus Christ paid the price for your sin through His death on the cross. And through His miraculous resurrection, He rescued you from eternal destruction. You can reach out in faith to receive your free gift of new life. Jesus put the Good News this way: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).It really is that simple: If you choose to repent of your sin and receive the gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, you will be forgiven and receive His gift of eternal life.

- on writing with my heart (breathe on me, breath of God) (derekmaul.wordpress.com)
When we breathe, filling our lungs with air, our blood is pumped through a multitude of tiny clusters of microscopic air sacs called alveoli. In the alveoli, oxygen from the air is absorbed into our blood; the blood – re-infused with the oxygen we need to survive – then rushes off to take the oxygen where it needs to be before completing its circuit and returning for more.
- God’s Justice Is Fully Satisfied By The Blood Of Jesus Christ (birdchirp.wordpress.com)
We have redemption through Jesus Christ. Redemption means to “buy back.” Jesus bought us back at the tremendous price of His shed blood. All men belong to God by creation — the devil never created a man nor could he ever create a man. All men are God’s by creation; but only those who are saved, belong to God by redemption. Jesus bought back everything the first Adam sold to the devil in the Garden of Eden.
