Everyday I thank God for the incredible sacrifice in sending His one and only Son to die on the cross for our sins. I also thank Jesus Christ for choosing to endure and go through the incredible torture and humiliation so that we could be forgiven for our sins.
Many today don’t truly realize the incredible gift of salvation that is available to them. It is absolutely free and costs nothing more than surrendering your life to Jesus Christ, and allowing Him to be Lord over your life. This may sound restrictive or scary to some, but when you learn about His intentions for you and your life, and that all He wants to do is bless you and do good to you it really does become the deal of a lifetime.
You see the power of what was accomplished when Christ died for us on that cross was that we no longer had to be slaves to our sinful nature, and we no longer had to suffer God’s wrath as it was poured out on Christ. Unlike the old testament where the Israelite’s sacrificed animals in order to cover their sins, with Christ our sins are washed away Amen!
Now obviously when we choose to surrender to Christ, we do so with our lives, which means that all of the sinful things and lifestyle we lead before are put to death at the foot of the cross, and we turn 180 degrees from that life that is ruled by Satan, and start living our new life in Jesus Christ, a life of righteousness, blessing and reverence to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
