Because He First Loved Us

because He first loved us

He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!

Jesus loves you!  How much?  Well this much……. He stretched out His hands and died.  The Bible tells us that even before the earth was created there was a plan for Jesus to be born as a man and become a sacrifice for our sins by death on a cross.

So Jesus loved us before we ever knew about Him.  The Bible says  the Lord chose us before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him In love. (Ephesians 1:4)

Jesus chose us.  He pointed his finger at each of us and said “I love you” with the fire of passionate love in His eyes.

“For God so loved the world that he gave is only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16,17

Jesus kept His end of the plan, He willingly became a sacrifice for our sins.  WHY?  Because the Bible says “the wages of sin is death.”

Jesus paid the price for ALL the sin of mankind over 2,000 years ago…..so our debt is already paid in full. However, if we don’t take the step and “believe in Him” we get to pay the tab ourselves. We get to receive “eternal death” upon ending our life here on earth.

I was 10 years old when I “believed in Him”.  That day I prayed a prayer of repentance for my sins and asked “Jesus to come into my heart.”  He did!

Becoming a follower of Christ is the best thing anyone could ever do!  You have nothing  to lose….and an eternity to face……someday.

I’m trading my sorrow
I’m trading my shame
I’m laying it down for the joy of the Lord
I’m trading my sickness
I’m trading my pain
I’m laying it down for the joy of the Lord
                                                                                                 (Darrel Evans)
because He first loved us
