April 1 is commonly known as all fools day. If you are a fool, that is your special day.
"The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God..." Psalm 14: 1. No God for me - no God will direct my life - no God will tell me what to do. I am my own man. Thou fool, thou knowest not what thou sayest. Know ye not that the only freedom you really have is the freedom to choose masters? Jesus said: "No man can serve two masters, either he will love the one and hate the other, or else he will despise the one and cleave to the other".
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." Proverbs 1:7.
Do you despise wisdom and instruction? Then if you do, all fools day is your special day.
"The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools." Proverbs 3:35

Jesus Christ, who is God incarnate, came into the world to save sinners. "Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, he was buried and rose again the third day according to the scriptures".
Our father's instructions warns us that :"There is none righteous, no, not one." Romans 3: 10. "For all have sinned , and come short of the glory of God.." Romans 3: 23. "The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6: 23.
