Bible Ballistics: BBs #718 One Way-One Price- JESUS!!!
He was placed in a tomb—but my friends, HE, Jesus, didn’t stay there. HE arose triumphant over sin, death and hell! And HE did it all for YOU and me! I pray that you will seek Jesus today!
so loved the world,
that he gave
his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
17 For God
sent not his Son into the world
to condemn the world;
but that the world through him
might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him
is not condemned:
but he that believeth not
is condemned already,
because he hath not believed
in the name of the only begotten
Son of God.” John 3:16-18
Condemned or Redeemed? The choice is yours but choose wisely there is a test. And Peter gives us a most beautiful picture of the price that our Lord paid, and how we who are HIS should approach the world!
“For what glory is it, if,
when ye be buffeted for your faults,
ye shall take it patiently?
when ye do well, and suffer for it,
ye take it patiently,
this is acceptable with God.
21 For even hereunto were ye called:
because Christ also suffered for us,
leaving us an example,
that ye should follow his steps:
22 Who did no sin,
neither was guile found in his mouth:
23 Who, when he was reviled,
reviled not again;
when he suffered,
he threatened not;
but committed himself
that judgeth righteously:
24 Who his own self
bare our sins
in his own body
on the tree,
that we, being dead to sins,
should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed.
25 For ye were as sheep
but are now returned
unto the Shepherd and Bishop
of your souls.” 1 Peter 2:20-25
May you see Jesus in this special time, and when you do, may the world see Jesus IN you/me!
Jesus’ love and willingness to die for you and me says it all—
What will YOU do with HIS sacrifice?
Amen and Amen!
