Christ is God. He is the humanity of God. He is the great I AM...Christ is the Spring of Water that gives us...
Whoever Enters... Through the Gate... Will Be SAVED!!!
You see Christ died on the cross for you and for me. He died so that we may live eternally (have everlasting Life) and so that we could be forgiven. Without Christ, we would be nowhere. Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice and gave the ultimate gift by giving His life when He could have just said "No, I won't do it!" But, God loved us so much He gave His only Son in order that we may live with Him FOREVER!!!
So, who is this man???
(Do you see the cross?)
So, are we really entitled to all we have??? Do we deserve the nice cars, beautiful homes, XBOX, new boots, and so on??? The answer is no, we don't even come close to deserving what we have. Thank goodness, because what we deserve is far worse than we could even imagine. Because of Christ we do not get what we deserve. We deserve a life far away from God, but Christ paid our price and forgives us of our sins and we are able to see Jesus in Heaven if we just (A) admit that we are sinners. (B) Believe that Jesus is God's Son. And (C) Confess Jesus as our Savior and our Lord. This is not of good works. You cannot save yourself. However, if you know Christ, your good works will shine through. This is because of Christ and what He did on the cross.
My prayer for all of us today is that we will one day meet our maker and hear Him say these words..."Well done good and faithful servant."
P.S. Okay, so there were more words than I had thought.
