Title: Jesus Gave His life for Us
( John 3:16- For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world , but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
We are celebrating the death of Jesus today. Many of us do not know why Jesus came to die, many of us don’t understand the meaning of the death of Christ or the significance of it to our lives. God created man for man to have fellowship with Him. But Adam and Eve disobeyed God and there was eternal disconnection between man and God. Jesus came to restore that relationship which Adam and Eve disconnected . God sent Jesus to come and die for us , so that we will know the magnitude of love God has for mankind.
It is only through Jesus that we can be connected with God again. (Romans 8: 1-4) Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh , God did by sending His son in likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so He condemned sin in the flesh. In order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Through the death of Jesus Christ, He revealed what unfathomable love is , unconditional love, love that does not have any strings attached to it. Jesus showed man love by going to the Cross of Calvary to die, and spread His hands and said it is finished. This is the reason for the season. Are you ready to embrace the love of Christ into your life today? Are you ready to ask Jesus to come into your life at this time? Please confess your sins today and ask Him to come into your life and your life will not remain the same in Jesus name.
Jesus is coming soon, Stay In tuned with the word of God the same way you listen to the news every day, you will know the signs of the end time. When you begin to interpret what is going on today you will find out that Christ can come anytime from now. Let us watch and pray. Amen.
Prayer: Thank you Lord Jesus for going to the Cross to die for me. I am thankful. Please Lord, I am sorry for all the times I have refused to appreciate the work you did for me on the cross. Please help me to stay connected with you forever in Jesus name.
