HERE’S THE REAL REASON JESUS DIED
Without Jesus’ sacrifice there was no way that you and I could ever find forgiveness for our sins.
Even if we stopped sinning,we still could never be saved because we could never ever undo our sins.
The Bible says for ALL have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,”
That means everyone of us sinned and we had no way to ever atone for our sins.
Even if we stopped sinning,we would have no way to atone for our past sins, therefore they would remain and we would remain sinners before God.
But because Jesus died, now we freely have forgiveness when we put our faith in Him.
We did nothing to deserve His forgiveness, and that is God’s grace
Our slate is wiped clean and our sins forgotten.
But now we are expected to go and sin no more.(John 8:11)
Not to continue sinning.
“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.”
Now that Jesus has paid the heavy price of death for us to find forgiveness and atonement for sin,we cannot deliberately continue sinning thinking His prescious blood will wash away our sin.
That is taking God’s mercy for granted and an insult to what Jesus did on the cross!
Jesus Himself said unless you REPENT,you will perish.(Like 13:3)
The word of God fire warned of Apostates who turn the grace of our Lord Jesus into a licence to sin.
Beware of false prophets.
Your soul is prescious to Jesus.
“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The bible says God’s grace leads us to repentance,not to continue in sin.
The bible says in Hebrews 10:26-29 that if we trample on the sacrifice of God’s holy Son,by deliberately continuing to live in sin, we can only expect God’s judgement.
“For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?”
“Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?”
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
