His Love is For Us

 

“We know how much God loves us and we have put our trust in His love.”
1 John 4:16

 

Not everybody can say that. Many do not realize how much He loves them. That’s because they may feel unlovable. But God’s love is based on His ability to love anybody, no matter what they have done. We all need to trust in Him and in His love for us. 

 



Children of God

 

To those who did accept Him and believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.”  John 1:12

 

All but one of the world’s religions are based on the teachings of their founders.  Buddhism is based on the teachings of Gautama Buddha.  Islam is based on the writings of Mohammed.  But Christianity is different.  It is not based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, but rather on who He was and what He did.  Salvation comes not from following His teachings (which is a good thing to do) but from accepting Him by faith.  That’s how you become a child of God.

 



He did it all!

“Jesus is able to save those who come to God through Him, completely and for ever.”  Hebrews 7:25
 
The good news of the gospel is that Jesus did it all.  He paid for all of our sins on the cross.  As a result, He is able to save all of us when we come to God through Him.  We don’t have to add anything.  We never have to pay for any of our sins.  He did it all!  Praise His holy name forever!


Do you have His life in you?

“Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.”  Romans 6:4
 
This last Sunday we all celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Now Easter is behind us for another year.  However, the results of Easter continue with us daily.  His resurrection means that we are now empowered to live life differently.  His resurrected life in us gives us strength to live for Him every day.  Do you have His life in you?
