Jesus loves you

The love that God, the Creator of all things has for mankind seems beyond human perception. God created man and placed him in a perfect environment. However, man rebelled against God and sinned, thus sin has entered into this world since the disobedience of Adam. The Bible says all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death.”  The question then arises, “Ye serpent, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of Hell?” (Matthew 23:33).

The answer is found in the Word of God. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:36).  Because God loves us so much, He sent His only begotten son to take on the sins of the World. This is the importance of God being born of a virgin, not taking on the seed of an earthly man. By shedding His innocent, sinless blood on the cross we are redeemed.  The shedding of blood is an act God uses to redeem, thus Christ was the unblemished Lamb of God, and the final sacrifice that needed to be made as His blood was shed on the cross.

This redemption does not involuntarily fall on man. This redemption is a choice God has given to us. He cannot force us to take it. One of the biggest misconceptions is that God sends people to Hell. Hell was created for Satan and his angels, not man. It wasn’t until sin entered the world that man was appointed to go there. However, God loves us so much that He did not want to see us go to Hell, therefore he sent His son, Jesus Christ, to be that bridge back to God. Therefore, if we ask Christ into our lives He saves us from going to Hell, thus God has not left us to go to Hell, we have the choice as to whether or not to send ourselves there.

Jesus loves you, and wants to be there to connect you back with God. The Bible let’s us know that the only way to the father is through Jesus Christ (John 14:6). This is done by repenting and confessing the sins in your life to God. Tell Him you want to live righteously and follow His word and want to be apart of His eternal Kingdom. By doing this you are free from your debt of sin and will live with the Father eternally in Heaven forever. Jesus loves you and the Bible tells us all so!

“Jesus Love Me”
“Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bible tells me so; Little ones to Him belong, They are weak but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.”
