JESUS IS ALIVE!
“Abba Father, how did you do it? How did you watch Your Son die when you had the power to save Him?”
“Then this thought came:”
“I know You were thinking about us, but it still had to be difficult to watch Him suffer. Our initial disobedience caused You to have Your Son die for us. Oh what a love!!!”
“Then I got to thinking about His love and remembered that love, real love - sacrificial love, only happens when we're connected to the Holy Spirit.”
"The trip that Jesus took to Calvary was planned before the very foundations of the world. God always had a plan to redeem us. When Jesus came to earth, everything He did, everything He said, was done with Calvary on His mind.”
“Even knowing what He would suffer, by taking on the sins of the world, Jesus still chose to suffer the penalty of our sin for us. He had us--you and I--on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had doing the will and purpose of His Father on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had defeating sin and death on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had resurrection on His mind as He prepared for Calvary. He had victory on His mind as He prepared for Calvary.”
Because He submitted to Calvary, rose victoriously from the dead you and I can live! All we have to do is accept the free gift of salvation.
If you don’t know this living, powerful Jesus personally, please inbox me. I would love to introduce you to Him so you can live too!
