JESUS PAID IT ALL!!! . 17/11/2020 19:45:08
Faith and Repentance comes from hearing God’s Word. Those who have an ear to hear, hear what is said. If you don’t understand how serious God is about sin, then what Jesus did on the cross will mean nothing to you. We are ALL born sinners. Sin is when we break the moral laws (10 Commandments), which we are all born with the knowledge of (our conscience). God is so holy He CAN NOT let sin, not even one, go unpunished. Justice must be served. He tells us the wages (penalty) of sin is death (hell). Here’s an example of how serious God is about sin: Let’s say you rob a bank. As you stand before a Judge guilty of your crime, he will sentence you according to the law. You can cry, apologize and plead with the Judge promising you will never do it again but you still need to be held accountable for your crime and be justly punished for it. This is the severity God will judge each and every one of our sins. God, not wanting anyone to perish, made a way for sins to be forgiven. He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to BE the ONLY WAY to heaven. His gesture shows how serious He is about sin. Jesus, who knew no sin, was made into sin. He was crucified (nailed to a cross) receiving the full penalty/wrath from the Father for all of His believer’s sins. He took their punishment and suffered their death. The blood He shed washed them clean, making them without blemish or spot. His sacrifice satisfied the demands of justice so God could justly forgive their sins. The record of sins, the indictment of guilt that had them headed for hell, was “nailed to the cross”. Through His physical death, believer’s flesh died as well breaking the chains and bondage of sin. Sin no longer has dominion over them. For all these reasons, Jesus is our Savior. Three days later, He was resurrected (raised from the dead fully God and Man) defeating death. Death no longer has a sting. He is ALIVE. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. For these reasons, Jesus is our Lord. Here’s an example of what Jesus did for believer’s: Let’s say you have a stack of unpaid speeding tickets. As you stand before a Judge guilty of your crimes, he will sentence you according to the law. The Judge can legally order you to pay a fine or go to jail. If your fine is paid, the Judge can rightfully let you go. Jesus paid the believer's fine in full. When we put our faith in Christ Jesus as the One who died for our sins and rose from the dead on our behalf, the grace of God saves us. Salvation is received by grace (the love and mercy given by God) alone, through faith (faith comes from hearing God's Word) alone, in Christ (the Son of God) alone. We cannot work for our salvation, earn it through any human merit or boast of entitlement. It’s not by our actions that salvation is received. It’s a free gift granted by God alone. Through salvation believer’s are Born Again, a conversion experience in which a person encounters God and is spiritually transformed. Your first birth was of the flesh, just as Adam was of the flesh. Your second birth (being Born Again) is of the Spirit, just as Jesus was born of the Spirit. Heaven and hell are very real. We are ALL going to die, with NO exceptions. Yesterday is gone, you’re in today and you’re not guaranteed tomorrow. I pray this speaks to you. May God bless you.
