You are loved!
Jesus loves you!
For God SO loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life.
This is the most cliche or overused yet most profound thing I’ve heard in my life.
That God the creator of the world and the one who created you and me long before our forefathers were conceived came to earth in a human form because that was the only way a sinless person could become sinful ( by being fleshy). The mere coming of God to earth I like to believe, was degrading enough. I mean an earthly king who walks on the street without his security and all the regalia is abominable not to mention of the King of kings. Right from his birth, his life was endangered, the devil through Herod tried to make attempts on his life to prevent him from going through with the sacrifice. He was persecuted and crucified. His blood was shed for you. If this was the end then He might have just been another martyr for the Gospel but on the 3rd day, Baba rose again. Hallelujah!
In His death, we also died to the power of sin and destruction and In his resurrection, we are made alive to a new life in Christ.
You see, prior to the arrival of Jesus and after the fall of man, God gave Moses the law knowing fully well that by our own efforts we couldn’t be saved. The law was given to show how imperfect man is by himself. Then Christ came, and when he died he took away all your sins. The implication of him dying is you don’t have to die again (not physically but eternal death). You are saved when you believe. All you have to do is believe that he died for you and because he died, you are saved from the shackles of sin and death and you have come into Jesus who is life himself and because of this you have eternal life!
Regardless of your flaws and your imperfections, Jesus does love you! I mean for the sins your fathers committed, your sins and for those of your descendants, he died once and for all. While we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Long before we were formed, He came to pay the price in full and for all. Doesn’t this excite you?
Salvation is a gift, you don’t need to do anything to get it. I mean if you worked for something, you deserve a reward right? But you do nothing for a gift. Salvation is a gift lest any man should boast.
All that is required of you is to believe in the sacrifice.
Good works are good, commendable even but good works cannot save a soul. Only Jesus can.
“You may go to church
Seven days a week
You may give half your salary to the poor and the needy
You may barely tell a lie
But you would surely die if you’re not born again.”
This is why Jesus came. His ambition is that all men be saved. He’s waiting for you. Please don’t keep him waiting for too long. Ignore that voice that tells you that you’re too bad or too extreme for God to love you because that is a pitiful lie. He loves you and is waiting for you. Respond in thanksgiving, joy and excitement to this good news.
Know this, you can never hear this enough. There is legit joy in my heart everytime I hear this message. This is the basis of our faith as Christians. Tell somebody about Jesus today. Be a light in this dark world. This is why you were made.
By the way guys, tomorrow is my birthday. I’m excited about that really. I doubt I’m going to actually celebrate it but I’m excited all the same. I’m working on the obligatory birthday post. Stay woke! And in case you need my bank details, add me on snapchat (@besidoneee) 😂.
I hope this blessed you. Please share. Contribute to the spread of the gospel today. 😊😊
Jesus loves you!
From BASE with love.
