In humanity we have two groups, one that recognizes and battles against sin, and one that is unaware and blithely goes through life subject to sin.
Jesus exposed evil, and evil hates light because it’s deeds get exposed. We have a sphere of influence where we can be lights. We are citizens of Heaven and must awaken and put aside the deeds of darkness. We are living in an evil day and must put off the things of the flesh. Prayer is our first line of defense and offense.
Let us pray for a “Great Awakening.”

Scripture teaches that the heart of unredeemed man is in a state of corruption. Even with regards to the best of men, the Word of God testifies that the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. It is only through the spirit of God that the human heart is regenerated.

On April 12 this year Christians will celebrate the glorious RESURRECTION of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. No doubt God will use the observance of this historically verifiable event to prompt everyone He can to consider what it means that only one human in history has ever conquered death, our ultimate enemy. If there is no such thing as actual death (“the end of life”), Resurrection is superfluous—and our Hope is diluted.
If we are to maximize our vast spiritual potential, we must know WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST. Paul’s epistles show us our complete identification with our risen Lord and Savior—in his life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and newness of life. What the risen Christ said to his disciples just before his ascension is what he now says to you and me: “I am with you always, even to the very end of the age.” Our Lord Jesus is not an “absent Christ,” as he would be had he “departed” from us. Instead, he disappeared, and thus created an invisible presence.

The quality of thankfulness is an absolute requirement for the disciple of Christ. This thankfulness isn't contingent upon circumstances but what God did for us in Christ, what He continues to do for us each day and the promises of what He will do for us in the future.
