We are not a bag of dust. Our value is far greater than what we can comprehend ie if we were a bag of dust Jesus Christ, The Son of The Living God would not have come down to this world to live a sinless life but die a sinners death. God The Father Loved us all unconditionally that He did not spare His Son but let Him be a propitiation for our sins so that we could be his Children in Jesus Christ. We are God’s inheritance in Jesus Christ.
When we acknowledge that we “…all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”.Then we know, How great a need, We are in for a saviour, Who can redeem us from our sins. This redemption is not attained by works of self-righteousness but by Faith in Jesus Christ, That He took on himself the wrath of God for our sins and Died and Rose Again. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.””
When we repent of our sins and accept this righteousness through Faith in Jesus Christ, God begins His Work in our mind through His Holy Spirit who will reveal the truths about God to us.
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
“And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.” “For he (God the Father)hath made him (Son Jesus Christ) to be sin for us(Whoever Believe In Jesus Christ), who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” “For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” “And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” “just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,”
But it’s up to us what we choose Life or Death and God wants us to choose Life, So that we may have Life to its fullest in Jesus Christ.
A small prayer: Father, I pray that you open my Heart to your truth that I am saved through Faith in Jesus Christ who became a sin for me and took on himself the wrath of God on my behalf and died and rose again the third day. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen
