Bad or good

Hello, God has given me something in 1 Chronicles 3:13-14 which says,

“Ahaz his son,
   Hezekiah his son,
   Manasseh his son, 
  Amon his son,
   Josiah his son.”

Good kings and bad kings: Everyone of the kings listed here accept two did wrong. Josiah and Hezekiah both did right in the eyes of the Lord. There were more kings that did evil than there were that did good. Evil was reigning in Israel, there were some good kings, but manly evil. God says that the punishment for sin is death (Romans 6:23) the Israelites offered sacrifices, but we don’t! Ahh! The apocalypse is coming! Run for your lives! Wait, if we’ve sinned for so long, why haven’t we already gone to hell? NONE of us are perfect. So that means that there has to have been some perfect sacrifice that atoned for all our sins.

Gospel: There was a perfect sacrifice! No animal. His name is Jesus, He is and was the son of God, and He gave His life for us. He loved (loves) us so much that He gave His own life for us (John 3:16-17). God gave His only perfect son for us. He is the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God (Isaiah 9:6). Jesus gave His life for us.

Closing prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your only son for us. Thank You for giving the perfect sacrifice for us. Thank You, Jesus, for loving us so much that You made us the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). I pray that I would love You more, and worship You more. Thank You for letting me know about how You died for me. I pray that the believers in China would hold on to the fact that You gave Your life for them and us, I pray that they would share it fearlessly. I pray that so many other rule places also would be reached, and hear about the gospel. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
