Love

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 KJV

He died and rose so that we could live. Yes, Jesus lived, died, and rose from the dead so that you and I could live.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:8‭-‬10 KJV

Why did He do It? Limitless Love.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV


Redeemed


Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; Psalms 107:2 KJV

It’s time to live in perfect liberty. You and I, dear Christian, have been set free from the bondage of sin and death. We have been (past tense, present reality) redeemed by the precious blood of the Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world.
Now is the time to rejoice and shout about this glorious truth and begin to live in the fulness of it!

Say it! “I am redeemed!” “Sin has no dominion over me!” “I am free in Christ!”

Now live like it!


The Blood


Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, Hebrews 10:19 KJV

“What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” So declares the biblical truth found in this old song of the church.
No amount of good intentions or good works can lift man out of the bondage of sins grip of spiritual death. Only the blood of the Spotless Lamb, Jesus, gives access to God’s  throne of grace,  having translated him out of darkness into God’s marvelous light. 

How does this take place? Repenting and receiving Jesus, the risen Son of God, as Lord and Savior.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3 KJV


The Lamb


For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:10 KJV

Before the fall [rebellion] of man [Adam] the Godhead [Father, Son & Holy Spirit] had a plan for the redemption of His creation [mankind] – Jesus the Lamb Slain from the foundation of the world.

He will accept all who come come to Him.
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37 KJV

Receive Him today. 

But 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;  That 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.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:8‭-‬10 KJV
Follow and obey Him before it’s too late.

If ye love me, keep my commandments.   And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;   Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. John 14:15‭-‬17 KJV


“If”


But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit that lives in you. Romans 8:11 MEV

The little word “If” is the qualifier of the promise. No “If”, no resurrected life.

Way too many professing Christians refuse to acknowledge that the promises of God are only available to those who obey the Word of God (the Bible).

If you love Me, keep My commandments. John 14:15 MEV

If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. John 13:17 MEV

If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear. Mark 4:23 MEV

If You, then, will worship me, all will be Yours. Luke 4:7 MEV

If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. 2 Timothy 2:12‭-‬13 MEV

Pay attention to the qualifiers and then you will receive and enjoy the benefits of God’s lavish grace.


The Name

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 KJV

Jesus is the only way to approach God. There are no other ways into His Presence. He is not a way, He is the way. Scripture is very clear on this point.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 KJV
By one man’s sin (Adam) all men died (spiritually). By one Man’s sacrifice (Jesus) men can live (spiritually).

But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. Romans 5:15 KJV

Receive Him today and receive the life of God. He is waiting for you.

That 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.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:9‭-‬11 KJV


Valentine


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV

Today most of the people in the civilized world celebrate Valentines Day with words of love and affection. Cards with hearts abound and commitments at wedding ceremonies are more than any other time of year.

Unfortunately way too many ignore God’s John 3:16 Valentine Card.

He’s asking for a response. Are you going to respond?

But 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;  That 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.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:8‭-‬11 KJV
