Right now, my department at school is preparing to implement new science standards. As we work on new curriculum, one concern is how we teach at the right levels without "watering down" the concepts. We want students to know the real information and answers, no matter what grade level we are teaching. We also need the right answers in our spiritual lives!
As we consider the messages and lessons that God presents in His Word or speaks to our hearts, there is one lesson that is essential to learning all the other lessons. We need to not just hear, but to truly accept and understand that there is only one way to eternal life with God. We can only have redemption, we can only have eternal life, through God's Son Jesus Christ. It is through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus that we are forgiven and made whole. God has given us the right answer. The answer is not watered down, it is provided through the blood or our Savior!
The answer to eternal life has been given to you by God through the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ!
Thank You for the forgiveness and redemption provided through the sacrifice of Your Son. Help me to accept Your gifts and to share them with others. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Savior, I pray, amen.
