Raised to Life
Today is Palm Sunday, our brothers and sisters came for service, and across this nation were dealt with death for their praise and worship to God, and his son Jesus! Freedom is why we’re able to love God and come to Him, but we are and will pay a price for this Freedom! We may not die, but we will succumb to ridicule and hatred from those that don’t even know us!
NOTHING surprises God! Jesus came was to die for our sins, this was in the part of obedience, the will of the Father, the plan! If Jesus can love us enough to die, how are we joy serving others and coming to others for other in Gods grace!
There was no unfinished plans from Jesus! He faced death in the face with nothing but words of grace and forgiveness! He looked at his accusers and asked his Father for forgiveness to these people! That is the LOVE of Jesus! He was compelled to walk in obedience! He was tortured, he carried his own cross, and was left by even those that love him! When Jesus died on the cross, it had been done, it was finished! This work was done and would proclaim eternity forever! Sin forever paid by Jesus with his one act of obedience by the wrath of God! All sins washed away white as snow, through the blood of Jesus! Amen!
Death is inevitable! Watching people we love die isn’t easy!
Big idea: Jesus COMPLETED what he was sent to do, bringing SALVATION to everyone who BELIEVES.
Jesus finished the work of SALVATION
Our sinful nature is going to happen, we will have consequences, but we are responsible for repentance through those sins! We have a sinful nature, we are children of wrath! We are taught to do right, not to do wrong because it is part of our nature! The world shows you happiness and there is nothing but despair when it’s not attached to a Godly way! We have been rescued! Jesus is leading us on a trajectory of Heaven! He sacrificed for us all! Salvation is through Jesus!
Receive the gift or REJECT IT
Have you allowed Christ to come into your life or have you surpassed what he has for you? There is one way to Him! Have you taken that path or have you walked away!?
“Jesus gave it all, all to him I owe!”
With his death on the cross, he delivered a gift to all of us, past, present and future! All you have to do is receive his gift!
“After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”
– John 19:28-30
Don’t reject Christ! Come to Him!
