Jesus Christ died. I mean He was totally dead. How could anyone survive such beating, crucifixion, piercing at the side and be half conscious? The Bible confirms that he gave up the ghost. Christ died for all. God finishes what He starts. Christ couldn’t have died for half the people on the planet. I mean why would you suffer so much when everyone wouldn’t be saved? Christ wasn’t taking a risk by going to the cross. He wasn’t thinking ‘oh my, this is a horrible cup to drink but if It won’t save all of them, it will save some”. Capital NO. He wasn’t in the saving market pricing with the Devil saying, “ You see, I don’t have enough to pay for all their sins, I’ll just pay what I can so that at least some can have hope then you can have the rest. NOO. He’s not a debtor. He paid the full price. When a lamb is sacrificed, its not unconscious after its throat has been slit. It’s DEAD. It’s the death and shedding of blood that makes the sacrifice complete.
BUT Christ rose again. In this we have hope. This is the most amazing miracle in the whole of history. His resurrection is a confirmation of our victory over this world.
Why do you think Christ didn’t die for you and rise again? History makes it so glaring, the Bible confirms it. The death and resurrection of Christ is the one thing with so much evidence to prove its truth, yet it’s the most doubted. What else do you want? Even if God wrote in letters across the sky, some people will still look for one dumb scientific fact to defend it. Jesus died for all. Please don’t allow His suffering to be in vain.
Rejoice in the truth that someone loves you so much, he died for you. Some people say and believe they can die for someone. It’s true but they’ll only die for someone worth dying for. That’s the truth. Why would you die for a wretched, hard-hearted, hypocritical and proud person. Better to live your life well than waste it on such a person. But Christ did that. He died for us because He didn’t want to live without us. He died because He didn’t want us to die. That is the most beautiful sacrifice I can think of. So why take it for granted.
Friend, Jesus loves you. Whether you like it or not, He does. Whether you believe it or not, He does. He loves relentlessly and His love never fails. So you can believe all the lies you want but that one glaring truth will stand through eternity. JESUS LOVES YOU. All you have to do is love Him back. Stop looking for love in all the wrong places. If you keep filling that void with other things like money, fame and other desires, you would be wasting a whole lot of time because they are all the wrong pieces to fill that void. Only Jesus fits that hole in your heart. He’s the one who can bring contentment. And listen to this, you’ve been looking for someone to love you all your days, someone who would be true and loyal right? Well, Jesus won’t love you all your days, He’ll love you till eternity. Talk about FOREVER LOVE. I mean our brain can’t calculate the length of that. About the faithfulness, that’s just His middle name. It’s been tested and proven true. Really, would you forgive someone who has murdered innocent souls because of money, or someone who continually attacks his neighbor with evil because of jealousy? Just name it, he forgives it. So you have no excuse.
Salvation is such a beautiful thing. I’m sure science can’t explain how a wretched, hopeless soul can be transformed into a beautiful vessel of honour. Only Jesus can do that. How can someone who has been so low, suffered an unimaginable childhood, and addictive teenage years rise and face each day with such inspiring hope. Only Jesus. I’m just amazed at the work salvation brings. So beautiful. Only Jesus can make your life beautiful. Not the make-up, or the connections. Let’s face it, you only ‘make-up’ for inefficiencies. Jesus doesn’t make you up, He transforms. He doesn’t patch things up. He makes everything new. So quit stalling and accept Him.
