did Jesus did on the Cross?
All of us have messed up in life.
We have done things we are not proud of. Those things are called
sin. All of us have sinned. No one person
is better than another in God's eyes. Because of our sin, we
are separated from God, who is holy and will not tolerate sin
of any kind. Sin is what keeps people from getting to Heaven.
God's holiness requires that sin be punished.
all have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God."
Even though God detests sin,
He absolutely loves his prized creation: You!
There's nothing you
can do that will ever make God love you more or less. Yes, God
hates sin, but He values you more than anything. You know what
you look like when you wake up in the morning? Hmmm? You know
what I mean. That person who has smelly breath, dirty teeth,
greasy hair, eye boogers, and... well, you get the picture. That's
the person God loves. He loves you just like you are!
demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still
sinners, Christ died for us."
Now we've got a problem. If God
values you so much, and hates sin so much, how can He allow someone
who has sin into His presence? It's true, He was faced with an
ultimate dilemma. He chose to give the ultimate gift to you:
Himself. God came to Earth as a man: Jesus. Jesus lived a perfect life. He never
once did anything wrong. But he lived like you and I do. Jesus
eventually was crucified on a Roman cross. People have speculated
why He did such a thing for thousands of years. But there's only
one reason: Remember when you read that God must punish sin?
Well, guess what? He chose to be punished for us. God literally
will do anything to be with you. That's real love. He chose to
be punished and die a horrible death all because He values you
so much! But then, three days later, he did not stay dead but
came back to life to prove He was truly the King of Kings!
the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life
in Christ Jesus our Lord."
God so loved the world, He gave His only son, so whoever believes
in Him will not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
Now that you know what it cost
God to love you like he does:
give your life to Him and make Him the "Master" of
You can know right now where
you will spend eternity when your body dies.
take this moment to talk with God and make Him the Master?
Say something like this:
Jesus, I know I am a sinner. But I also know that you love me
very much. I know that you came to Earth and were punished for
my sin because you love me so much. I also know that you rose
back to life three days after you died. Thank you for loving
me that much. Because you gave your life for me, I'm going to
give my life to you. I make you the "Master." I make
you my Lord. I'm sorry for the wrong things I've done in my life.
I know you will forgive me for those sins. Help me to go and
live a new life. Thank you for changing me and making me a new
person. In Jesus' name I pray, amen."
confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your
heart that God has raised Him up from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
