The slaying of the Passover lamb pictured Christ’s atoning death on the cross for the sins of the world as Christ’s applied blood causes God’s judgment to pass over sinners and gives life to believers (Romans 6:23).
We don’t like to think about death, but the Bible says believers have nothing to fear—we have a Shepherd, Jesus, who will walk with us through the valley of the shadow of death when the time comes.
Too often, we end up saying “if only I had known then what I know now.” Since there’s no way to go back and relive our lives, we need to focus on the best way to respond to these painful memories. Otherwise, we will live under clouds of blame and shame and be paralyzed by fear.
You don’t have to look very hard to find negative people filled with self-pity. That’s why it’s so refreshing to find positive people... no matter the circumstances.
What I saw missing from my ministry was balance. While it was important for me to be there when someone needed me, it was also important for me to spend time alone with God because I needed Him.
When you find yourself unable to move forward in life, it’s probably because you’re focusing on the obstacle rather than the objective. Remember nothing is impossible for God... He specializes in the impossible.
