From the Desk of Kelli Vance...
I believe that this could be one of the greatest years of your life! I want to share a powerful story with you from John chapter nine about a man who was born blind. He had never seen a flower, a face, a house, a road, the clothes he wore, or the woman he would maybe one day fall in love with. His situation looked pretty hopeless. It didn’t look like this man could ever get a miracle.
But one day, the Master passed by. Jesus, the Light of the world stopped to take notice of him. The disciples asked Jesus if this had happened to him because of his sin or maybe the sins of his parents, and Jesus responded by saying, “It was not for any sin of his, said Jesus, or of his parents: but that the works of God might be displayed through him.” It was not because of an act of sin this man suffered.
I want you to see this, because there is a powerful truth that resonates from the miracle this man experienced. It’s interesting the way Jesus handled this situation. You don’t just hear of someone bending down and making mud with their spit and spreading it on someone’s face, but that is exactly what Jesus did. Remember, the blind man’s problem was not sin. His problem was being born that way. Keep in mind where man originally came from- the dirt/clay of the earth. And what did Jesus do? Hold this thought.
When trying to find out evidence in a case to convict someone of a crime, there are three ways to get D.N.A. evidence… through hair, blood, and saliva. When Jesus bent down to mix his saliva with the dirt of the earth, He was actually going back to the root of the man’s problem (being “born that way”). Read More...

God has an amazing plan for your life! He has provided everything you have ever needed or will ever need in the future. He knows your failures, your hurts, and your struggles, and He is reaching out to you today.
What's the first step? Realize that you you are a sinner. You have made mistakes, and those mistakes disqualify you from God's quality of life. In fact, your sins condemn you to a horrible eternity without peace, victory, or anything good. It separates you from God forever. You can't walk in the amazing plan He has for you unless you...
#2: Repent. That means to change your mind. Isn't it obvious that your thoughts and God's thoughts don't always line up? How can you ever expect to live like He lives unless you change your mind and start thinking like Him?
The third step is vital. Realize that Jesus made all this possible- the plan, the awesome God-like life, freedom from sin, and eternal life. He came into this earth a perfect, sinless person. That was possible because God was His Father, and His birth was supernatural. He lived like a man on a mission. Everyday, He fulfilled His assignment by being perfectly obedient to His Heavenly Father. And the results were and ARE still amazing! He healed the sick, He raised the dead, He cast out demons and made them obey, and He preached and taught truth that liberated those who received it.
But then, God put the weight of the entire world's punishment on Him. He suffered a tormenting death by crucifixion. He became sin on that cross, and the wrath of God was poured out on Jesus...because of us. Without the shedding of blood, the Bible says that there is no freedom from sin. So He willing did it for you and me and whoever would believe. But God raised Jesus from the dead! He is alive today and seated next to God in Heaven. He still does miracles, casts out demons, and preaches and teaches the truth through His followers.
Would you like to be one of them? It's simple and amazing and life-changing. The blood of Jesus is for you. When you believe in Him and His sacrifice, God will come into you by His Holy Spirit and purify you from every sin you've ever committed! You'll be FREE- free to live God's plan for your life! Free to be one of those radical followers of Jesus Christ who does miracles and lives the way God does. Are you ready? Say this out loud:
"Heavenly Father, I admit to you that I am a sinner, and I need a Savior! I cannot live the way You want me to without Your help, and I don't want to live my way any more. I change my mind. I accept Jesus as the Lord and Savior of my life. Today, I commit to living as Your Word shows me how. I believe with my whole heart that You raised Jesus from the dead, and He is alive with You now. Make me one of Your followers; fill me with Your Spirit and Your Truth. Help me to live completely devoted to you from this moment on. Thank You for new life! In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen!"
