KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:16 KJV “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
God showed His love for you by sacrificing Jesus for you. According to Isaiah 53:6 All men are like sheep who have lost their way. The scripture says we have gone astray, and God has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. The sheep is a creature with so much disadvantages. It is basically helpless before predators. That is the description the Lord makes about you. Your iniquities were all laid on Jesus. The scripture put it beautifully this way.2 Corinth 5:19 KJV” To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”
The above scripture is so amazing. He says God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself. To reconcile in this context means to change thoroughly. How did He do it? He did it by placing all our sins on Jesus, and as a result we were sinless. He said in the scripture, He did not count any of their sins against them, because they have all been placed on Jesus. Dear one God is not counting any of your sins against you. What is the worse thing you might have done? God is not counting it against you. They have all been placed on Jesus. This was why He died. Jesus died in our place so we could stand before God without any sin. 2nd Corinth 5:21 reveals that God has made Him to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God. This is the wisdom and love of God
Dear one, in the light of all that has been discussed above, are you going to remain defiant to His call? He says I stand at the door knocking, if any will open the door of his heart He would come in and eat and sup with you and you with Him. Any man who refuses such an offer will have himself to blame on the day our Lord Jesus judges the secrets of men’s heart. You may also die and that would also mean a judgement time for You. You would not have another opportunity to repent. After death what awaits you is judgement Heb 9:27″ And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”
THOUGHT: JESUS WOULD HAVE DIED FOR YOU, EVEN, IF YOU HAPPENED TO BE THE ONLY MAN ON EARTH
Rom 5:8 KJV But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1Corinth 15:3 KJV” For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
