It’s early Friday morning and I’m sitting out back listening to the birds and the water gently spilling into a pool in our small water fountain.
If you’re a follower of Jesus, I encourage you to read this as an affirmation of your faith.
In the Garden, Jesus determined to absolutely surrender to his Father’s will – “Not my will, but yours.” Matthew 26:39 His obedience to the Father makes my freedom from sin possible.
Before he was crucified on the Cross, Jesus was flogged – beaten. Mark 15:15. He bled crimson blood so that God can see me and my sins as white as snow. His work to defeat sin and death is now finished! John 19:30
Jesus was the perfect sacrifice – the Lamb of God – for my sins. Because I believe this, my sins – all my sins – are forgiven. Forever.
Surely, Jesus is the Son of God! Matthew 27:54
In God’s eyes, I’m totally acceptable. In Jesus, I’m righteous. Romans 3:21-24 In Jesus, I’m a new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 In Jesus, I’m a child of God. John 1:12
God loves me. So does Jesus. That’s why he went to the Cross. John 3:16
Thank you Jesus… for the Cross.
I love you.
PS – If you have not accepted Jesus into your heart, and have questions about God’s love for you and the Christian faith, contact me and I’ll be happy to talk with you.
