MARGIES BIMS

HELLO FRIENDS;
I AM OUT OF THE HOSPITAL AND AM HOME NOW. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. THEY HELPED.

LEAD THEM TO THE CROSS;

MANY HEART-TOUCHING STORIES WERE CIRCULATED AFTER THE TERRORIST ATACKS ON THE WORLD TRADE CENTER ON SEPTEMBER 11,2001. NONE SEEMS MORE SPIRITUALLY SIGNIFICANT THAN THAT OF IRON WORKER FRANK SILECCHIA. AS HE WAS HELPING TO RECOVER BODIES, FRANK NOTICED TWO STEEL BEAMS IN THE SHAPE OF A CROSS STANDING UPRIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THE DEBRIS.

APPOINTING HIMSELF AS THE CURATOR OF THAT STRIKING SYPMBOL OF GOD'S LOVE, HE OFTEN TOOK HEARTBROKEN VISITORS TO SEE IT. MANY OF THEM SERE COMFORED BY THE SILENT TESTEMONY TO THE DIVINE PESENCE IN THE WORST OF TRAGEDIES. ONE DAY WHEN JOURNALIST BARBARA WALTERS CAME WITH TEARFUL FRIENDS WHO HAD LOST A SON IN THE CATASTRPHE, FRANK SIMPLY LED THEM TO THE CROSS.

THE ANSWER TO THE WORLD'S TERRIBLE PAIN AND EVIL IS NOT AN ARGUMENT OR A THEOLOGCAL TREATISE. THE ALL-SUFFICIENT ANSWER IS CALVARY'S CROSS, WHERE IN FATHOMLESS GRACE JESUS, THE INCARNATE GOD, TOOK UPON HIMSELF THE BURDEN OF OUR SINS AND BORE THEM "IN HIS OWN BODY ON THE TREE, THAT WE...MIGHT LIVE FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS" (1 PETER 2:24)

IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN LED TO CALVARY'S CROSS, LET ME TAKE YOU THERE. HE DIED FOR YOU AND THEN ROSE AGAIN. BELIEVE IN HIM AND YOU WILL BE SAVED (1 COR. 1:21).

HE WAS NAILED TO THE CROSS, HE WAS NAILED TO THE CROSS!
O HOW MUCH HE WAS WILLING TO BEAR.
WITH WHAT ANGUISH AND LOSS, JESUS WENT TO THE CROSS,
BUT HE CARRIED MY SINS WITH HIM THERE.

THE PATHWAY TO HEAVEN BEGINS AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS. JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS. I HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT TIME.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY
