Click to listen to today’s Inspirational Thought:
The Bible says that Jesus died to actually take our sins away and not simply make us look better.
I just read an article about a new Smartphone App from a company called SKINNEEPIX that will take fifteen pounds off your selfie and impress your friends. The technology on the app runs your selfie through what they term a “skinny lens” and bam, you appear fifteen pounds lighter.
That sounds good, but it would really be better if it actually removed the fifteen pounds, but it does not. However, the truth of the Bible is that unlike a SkinneePix App, Jesus actually died to take your sins away, not to make you look better.
The Bible says, If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).
You can download the app if you want to “appear” thinner, but look to Jesus if you actually want to get rid of the extra baggage in your life called sin! That’s not just Good news, it’s Great news!
Think about it…and have a blessed day!
