Heaven Is It For Real?
This past week was a sad week. My nephew works at a restaurant, and he had a co-worker who was his friend. She was murdered by an attacker that came into hes home and stole her car. We are living in a sinful world, sometimes, awful things happen to innocent people. Sometimes, people become victims of other people. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. God is not to be blamed, because He has not made those people commit the acts that have harmed others. They have freedom of choice and they were the ones who chose to become a threat to other people.

From Stress to Joy
"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh." 1 Peter 3:18.
“The cross of Calvary appeals to us in power, affording a reason why we should love our Saviour, and why we should make Him first and last and best in everything. We should take our fitting place in humble penitence at the foot of the cross. Here, as we see our Saviour in agony, the Son of God dying, the just for the unjust, we may learn lessons of meekness and lowliness of mind. Behold Him who with one word could summon legions of angels to His assistance, a subject of jest and merriment, of reviling and hatred. He gives Himself a sacrifice for sin. When reviled, He threatens not; when falsely accused, He opens not His mouth. He prays on the cross for His murderers. He is dying for them; He is paying an infinite price for every one of them. He bears the penalty of man's sins without a murmur. And this uncomplaining victim is the Son of God. His throne is from everlasting, and His kingdom shall have no end.” Lift Him Up, 233.
The Son of God, the Prince of Heaven, gave everything for you. If He loves you so much, wouldn't He help you out when you need Him?
