So what does it mean for us to have the love of Jesus Christ with us?
1. First of all in John 1 it says Jesus Christ is our creator.
This shows that He made us, and everything in the world, so His love in one way is shown because He made us for Him and He is the light of the world but we are in darkness and we did not comprehend His love toward us.
2. Secondly if creating us is not enough, He came to the earth in human form and in Luke 2 it says He was born in Bethlehem.
He came and just as John 1 and Luke 2 say He is light and He lived in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend Him.
3. Thirdly Jesus showed the people His love and power by performing miracles in the midst of the people.
a. Jesus healed a paralytic man Matthew 9:1-8, Mark 2:1-12, Luke 5:18-26.
b. Jesus healed a man with leprosy Matthew 8:1-3, Mark 1:40-42.
c. Jesus fed 5000 men and their families Matthew 14:16-21, Mark 6:35-44, Luke 9:12-17, John 6:5-14
d. Jesus healed a man born with blindness John 9:1-41
4. Fourthly He died upon a cross for us because we have sinned, we have not kept the 10 Commandments in Exodus 20 and we are not holy and because we are not holy we cannot see God. And because we sinned we must die for the soul that sinneth dies. Jesus is our propitiation or sacrifice for our sins which proves that God the Father accepted His sacrifice since He is holy and He never sinned. His sacrifice allows us to live with Him forever in heaven if we put our trust in Him, and repent of our sins so He can forgive us.
a. Jesus was a righteous man who did nothing wrong. Matthew 27:19, 23.
b. Jesus suffered pain and humiliation. Matthew 27:26, 28-30, 39-44, 49.
c. Jesus died on the cross. Matthew 27:35, 50.
d. Jesus was crucified not for doing anything wrong, but for who he claimed to be. Matthew 27:11.
This is what Jesus had happen to Him on the cross
a. Jesus was flogged with a whip. Matthew 27:26.
b. the Romans put a crown of thorns on Jesus' head. Matthew 27:29.
c. the Roman soldiers spit on Jesus. Matthew 27:30.
d. the Roman soldiers hit Jesus on the head with a staff. Matthew 27:30.
e. the Romans nailed Jesus to the cross with nails about this long. John 20:25.
f.The people insulted and made fun of Jesus. Matthew 27:29, 39-44, 49.
Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day and is King of the world the only name under Heaven by which we can be saved John 14:6, John 3:16.
Clearly Jesus Christ loves us, and He wants us to live forever with us. So if you have not put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ and if you have not repented from your sins which means you apologize to God for offending Him because of your sins and you begin to forsake or turn from the past sins you have committed and the lifestyle you previously lived and begin to walk in holiness which God calls us to then you should seriously consider it, and search the Bible to see if it is true. 146,000 people die every day, you could die today, pray for Jesus to cleanse you and make you a new creation in Him so you will be born again and enter the Kingdom of God.
8But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
God bless y'all and spread this note around if you want to.
