One of the saddest verses in the Bible is found in Luke 2:7 which says, “And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”
Can you imagine having a life so full but yet having no room for Christ? Many would say no but the reality is many of us have a life just like that. Oh we try to add Christ to our busy schedule but when other things come up we often push Him aside because we have no room for Him in our life.
The question we must ask ourselves is how do we make room for Christ in our life? Simply by giving Him the key thus allowing Him to have complete control in our lives. Things that He wants to change, let Him change. Sins that He reveals to us, confess them. When we do this we will be able to live a life that is fuller and richer more than we could ever imagine.
May you each a great and wonderful day!!!
“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.
