  • The Arm That Reaches Down
    Wednesday, April 25, 2018
     
    Hinduism teaches that salvation comes when man merges back into God through the cycle of reincarnation and karma. Islam teaches that the way to heaven is by obeying Sharia law. Buddhism teaches that one must extinguish all the desires and passions of the soul to enter a state of peace or nirvana. Orthodox Judaism teaches that it’s by observing the commandments and having your good deeds outweigh your bad deeds, you’ll go to heaven. Though each is different, each teaches that salvation comes from the one who needs to be saved, an arm reaching up to heaven. Only one message is different – the Gospel. Salvation is just the opposite: It’s an arm reaching down from heaven. Stop struggling and striving to be good enough. Stop seeking to save yourself. You can’t, and you don’t have to. Messiah is heaven’s arm reaching down to you. In biblical prophecy, it’s called the Zeroah, the Arm of God. Wherever you’re at, wherever you’re not, just grab on to heaven’s Arm and He’ll do the rest.

    TODAY'S MISSION - Live today, not from earth to heaven, but from heaven to earth – and not from yourself to God, but from God to you.
