For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
--Romans 6:23

If you’re a professional baseball player these days, you can get into the Hall of Fame by hitting about three out of ten balls successfully. And sadly, this is how a lot of people think about their sin. They think everything’s fine as long as they’re hitting a good batting average with God.

But God doesn’t look at our sin through human eyes. Otherwise, there would be no need for Good Friday or Easter.

Sin is a big deal to God because it violates his holiness. It requires a righteous judgment. It demands a payment because as today’s verse says, “the wages of sin is death.”

When you look at the cross, you see what God thinks about sin. And God said that sin is so tragic, so terrible, and so wrong that it demands a payment. It’s a payment he sent in the form of his Son, Jesus Christ, who was put to death on the cross for your sin and mine.

But here’s the good news of the cross, and the good news of Easter: Jesus Christ died on the cross on Good Friday, but he rose again on Easter Sunday!

Jesus went to the cross to die, but now you and I go the cross to live. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out

Dear Friend,

Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today!  --Jack Graham
