Acts 2:38 KJV
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
I love this verse. Peter was such a rock for the Lord. Could you imagine the day of Pentecost? What a celebration to see! He was right when he said this. If we just come to the Lord, ask for forgiveness and be washed by the blood of Jesus, then we receive the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Ghost is our guide, comforter, a teacher. If we let it, our will guide our footsteps and help us to lead our lives for God! The Holy Ghost will transform your very soul and spirit if you allow!
So as the song that I grew up with goes, what can wash away my sins…nothing but the blood of Jesus!

John 12:13 NIV
They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the king of Israel!”
The whole story if you want to follow along starts in John 12: 12~19.
This week starts a holy week. Today its Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter. This is the last week of Christ’s life on Earth. From passover to crucifixion, He went through all of this so we could have eternal life with Him…What a time to celebrate!
This week, let’s stop and take the time to celebrate what Easter is all about. It isn’t about eggs or a bunny. It’s about how our Savoir conquered death, hell, and the grave. How He died on a cross and bore out sins, and rose on the 3rd day! Hallelujah! Praise The Lord!
Blessings to you all!
