... so that the world may believe - John 17:21

Carnival

February 16, 2015

With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God. - Ps 84:2

Carnival is celebrated in every remote corner of Brazil, Latin America, and the Caribbean. In the US, New Orleans joins the party with Mardi Gras. There are colorful floats, excitement, music, and dancing.  But there are also days and nights of drunkenness, debauchery, obscenity, violence, and crime.  The name Carnival means the festival of "carne" - the flesh.  The party is a time to sin without shame.

Sin is nothing to celebrate. Our sins break God's heart.

To celebrate JESUS is so much better. If you love Him, you really have something to shout about. He died on the cross to pay for your sins.

Dedicate your whole being to Him.  Make noise for Jesus -  lifting up holy hands in praise!
