Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many;
and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

READ AND WRITE SCRIPTURE TODAY.
April 6 – Matthew 4: 23-24
23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them.
When I read these verse, just now, I can see a link to the thoughts I had just typed. Jesus is the answer to all the problems.
Thank you for reading and for praying.
