Have you heard about what Jesus did for you on the cross? He died so you could be forgiven and sped eternity in Heaven with Him and saved from eternal torment in Hell. The Son of God stepped down from His throne and came to Earth to live among us.
These lyrics say it better than I ever could:
How Many Kings by Downhere
‘Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe, after all we’ve projected, A child in a manger?
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother’s shawl – Just a child – Is this who we’ve waited for? ’cause…
How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods have poured out their hearts To romance a world that is torn all apart How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Bringing our gifts for the newborn Savior All that we have, whether costly or meek Because we believe.
Gold for his honor, and frankincense for his pleasure And myrrh for the cross he will suffer Do you believe?
Is this who we’ve waited for?
Only one did that for me
All, all for me…
All for you…’
I believe God can take the worst sins and forgive them if you only repent and turn from them. Just think about that for a second! You’ve done something horrible, you’ve broken His laws and God with open arms says, “Come to me I forgive you!”. It doesn’t matter how many times you mess up, we all with mess up we are sinners (me included). He will still forgive you. And when we put our faith and trust in Jesus who died on the cross for you and me, we are free of our sins. He will never leave you when friends do, He is always there waiting to talk to you and God loves you UNCONDITIONALLY! When you want to scream at your sister because she’s being a pest God is there to help you hold your tongue and answer with love. When you want to smart off to your mom, He can help you. He’s helped me.
The reason I (and you too) need Jesus is because I can’t obey His laws perfectly so I fall short of what you have to be to enter Heaven. But when I put my faith and trust in Him (it takes more that just believing, the demons believe and they aren’t saved), I am forgiven and Jesus took God’s wrath instead of me. When God sees me on judgement day He won’t see my sins and wrongs, He sees Jesus. Jesus’ death saved me from having to die and be in eternal torment.
Matthew 13:41-42, 49-50 “The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
I pray God opens your eyes that you may believe and have eternal life with Him in Heaven and not have to suffer in Hell.
