Do we believe that the love of the God is unconditional for all human beings? Yes, the God’s love doesn’t change because He had created us in His own image whether we are believers or non-believers, if we believe in his son Jesus Christ! And the God had chosen us first even before the creation of the world in Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:4-7). Amen!
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
In the olden days there was culture in few religions where people were sacrificing animals for their sins to please the God. However, animal blood was not enough to compare with the human blood. And it was not possible with human efforts to have perfect relationship and right standing with God for salvation. That’s why the loving God loved so much the world that He gave is only begotten Son Lord Jesus Christ’s as living sacrifice for the sins of all the human beings. Without the Grace of Lord Jesus Christ it was impossible to cleanse our past & present sins with our own good works/efforts. Therefore, the God in His Love had a Plan for human beings that; if we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who had given his life on cross, will be saved. Here we see the great love of the Loving God; who gave His only begotten son Lord Jesus Christ as a perfect atonement for the sins of all human beings. Amen!
Let’s read – Romans 3:22-24 this righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
According to the Word of God; we can’t differentiate that murder, seems worse than the hatred or adultery seems worse than pride. Because whether it’s small or big sin is a Sin in front of the God and had separated us from Him. It doesn’t matter who committed the sin believers or non-believers. Because, due to our sins we had fallen short of our image before the eyes of the God; who is the Sovereign God sitting on the high throne and Lord Jesus Christ sitting on His right hand in the heaven. Means as we believe in His Son Jesus Christ, we become righteous in the eyes of the God, not by our good works, but through Grace & faith in Lord Jesus Christ!
We as once be slave to sin, got freedom by believing in Jesus through His crucifixion and shedding of His Holy Blood. Because the God is so loving and people are so valuable to Him that He had given His only Son Lord Jesus Christ for us. What a privilege we have; that the God had called us the ambassadors of Christ; the chosen people, the God’s own people and the Royal priest hood to give Him the Praise through Lord Jesus Christ. This is the relationship we see through the Loving Father God we have; by accepting His Son Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal Saviour.
John 10:10 the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
The thief brings sins, sicknesses, evil desires and problems which takes away our Joy & peace in life. However, the Lord Jesus Christ had come to give us the life of Joy, health, peace & prosperity so we can enjoy our life because of his overflowing love, grace & forgiveness.
There are two ways either you keep feeling helpless because of worries, sickness, loneliness, broken-hearted and weary in the soul? Or enjoy your life successfully & happily and experience the love of the Lord Jesus Christ? Then it is the right time to call Lord Jesus Christ in your heart as your Lord & personal Saviour!
Romans 10:9-10 if you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Have you ever been asked that why I am struggling and worried that, “How my past and present sins could be forgiven and to have the abundant life of happiness, peace and eternity? It is simple & close to you” You can believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and salvation is as close as to your own lips and heart. People think it must be a complicated process, but it is not. If you believe in your heart and say O loving Father God, we believe in our heart and confess with our mouth that Lord Jesus Christ is your risen son, you will be saved.
Luke 23:39–43 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
There were two criminals who were also crucified the same day when Jesus Christ was being crucified. One thief did not believed and the other thief was also about to die, but he believed in the Jesus Christ. This shows that our deeds doesn’t save us, however, our faith in the Jesus Christ does. It is never too late to believe in Jesus. Even during the suffering on cross, Jesus had love, compassion & mercy on this thief who decided to believe in him. Our lives will be much more useful and fulfilling if we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ early. Because there was no time left for the thief, but we have whole life to worship Him and be in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We see here that the even the dying thief had more faith than the rest of Jesus’s disciples followers all together. The thief had seen that Lord Jesus Christ took all the Sins of the world upon Him, being crucified next to him and had shown great faith and said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”
By all crucifixion appearances by evening, the Kingdom work was finished. It was the evening time the sky became dark, there was an earth quake, thunder and lightning and people said surely He must be a Son of the God. How overwhelming was to see believe & faith of this thief who ALONE saw beyond the crucifixion to the coming Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ! That is the resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ after 3 days.
Do we see some time in our life that we have problems from everywhere like worries, sickness & losses seems like earth quake, darkness and thunder, then let’s come to the light of the world by believing in Lord Jesus Christ! Let’s us all pray!
O loving Father God, we believe in our heart and confess with our mouth that Lord Jesus Christ is your risen son. Therefore, Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen!
