Why Did Jesus Die?

Image“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:4

Why did Jesus die? is a question that many have often asked or wondered about. I think there are many answers to this question. The first answer is because we had a huge sin debt and only His righteous blood could pay the price.Second reason was to save our souls from suffering the wrath of God in Hell. Third reason He died was so that we could have a relationship with God. The final reason that He died was so that we could walk in newness of life.

I would like for you to think about this!! Before Jesus took our place at Calvary there was no way for us to live a life that pleased God because we would always fall short. BUT now since Jesus has died and rose again, sin and death have no more power or control in our lives. Because of Jesus we can now live a life that pleases God.

Why did Jesus die? So that we “..may have life and have it more abundantly” John 10:10.

 

Happy Valentines Day!!!

When I look back at Valentine’s Day, I remember the excitement that I felt as a child.  At school we would have a place where people would put their valentines for us and with excitment all of us would look to see who gave us a Valentine.  Even though those years have come and gone I still look at this day as exciting.

Valentines Day reminds me of the greatest Valentine that was given to mankind and that is the love of God.  John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the World that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting Life.”

I know for many this day could be discouraging but may I encourage you to let you know that you are loved.  God loves you with all His heart and He is asking, “Will you be my Valentine?”  What will your answer be?
