I have become a Connoisseur of pork skins. They come in so many flavors and they’re a really good high protein low carb alternative to potato and corn chips.
I noticed on a new brand that I purchased there was a scripture at the bottom of the package. So I went onto their website and found more information about the company. Turns out they also have a page of information called Everlasting Life. That’s right, they share the plan of salvation.
Here’s what they say – Every person has two great longings and inward needs. The first is to be loved, and the second is to love. But when pressures and heartaches come into our lives, many give up any hope of ever finding love. The tragedy is that we often look in the wrong places to fill this deep, deep need and longing.
I grew up with the need to please. Now it’s important to honor and respect your parents, but to feel the need to please in order to find our worth or to keep others happy is never what God intended. When I found the love of Christ, everything changed. And this love will continue to change me, guide me, lead me and keep me safe always. I can do without many things, including pork skins, but I cannot go a day without Jesus.
Oh beloved, how wonderful you are in God’s sight. When Jesus went to the cross you were on His mind. Trite saying but oh so true. When He walked through hell you were the reason. When He rose from the grave you were His purpose. His respect and obedience towards Father God poured out into salvation for you! Now you don’t have to hope you’re good enough because Jesus alone is good – and He has poured out His goodness for you to rely on. It’s a win-win situation! You don’t have to perform for your salvation. Why? Because you can’t. It’s a gift – freely given.
More than salvation, you have a Savior who is acquainted with your weaknesses – He knows all about them. He bore all your sorrows – every single one of them. He intercedes for you in heaven even right now! You’re not alone, you don’t have to make things happen, you aren’t obliged to give in to the devil and you have Victorious written all over your heart and mind!
God loves you and He’s for you. Proven already. Whatever it is today that is giving you fits and causing you to mourn and be despondent, God says look up at Me and I will show you the magnificence of the Kingdom! I made you, I saved you and I will carry you all the way! I will give you fresh insight, new life, fresh anointing and more joy and peace than you can imagine. He says live, beloved, with your whole heart focused on His unfailing mercy and grace!
