The Chaplains Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

Say, do you remember this; “Plop Plop Fizz Fizz oh what a relief it is.” If you’re over fifty then you probably know I’m talking about, Alka Seltzer; it brings relief.

Relief, that’s a great word and an even better feeling. Webster defines relief as, ‘the removal or lightening of something oppressive, painful, or distressing.’

The Bible says,
“In Christ we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.”
And then it says,
“Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our sins.”
(Eph. 1:7-8 & 2:4-5)
Talk about Relief with a capital R – that’s what Redemption is. There are two kinds of heart burn; physical and spiritual. Alka Seltzer can make your belly feel better – but only having Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord will relieve the pain in your heart. That’s Divine Relief; ‘the removal of something oppressive.’; your sins are gone!

Do you know what I’m talking about?
