Because I believe Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead, I am SAVED! The most important statement this Lenten season is that I am saved. Jesus said that He was the way to salvation and all we need to do is believe in Him to be saved from eternal death into life, John 14:6 ” “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” He also called himself the gateway, John 10:9 “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.” Acts 4:12 says that Jesus and only Jesus can provide salvation, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Belief in Jesus saves us from God’s wrath over our sin, Romans 5:9-10 “Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!”
What about you? As I look at the cross and Christ’s suffering, I realize that He suffered and died for me, to take away my sin, so I can live with Him eternally. He loved me so much! John 3:16 says it all, “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.” Belief in Jesus cost me nothing but it cost Him everything. How grateful am I? Praise Jesus and thank God for sending Jesus as you prepare to celebrate Resurrection Sunday. The Love of God has brought us full circle from the beginning of Lent to it’s end- Jesus and His love for us reigns supreme. Jesus conquered it all to save me and you!
Loving Jesus more and more,
