He did this for us~
|The Last Supper|
As I write, I am reminded that this is Easter weekend. This night he took Passover… because Jesus is Jewish and that has NOT changed.(Jesus came to fulfill the Law (torah),NOT abolish it)
|His Love 4 Me|
This day over 2000 years ago, JESUS made the ultimate sacrifice. Arrested, betrayed, ridiculed, name called, accused, beaten, spit on, rejected even by those he was close to. He bore our guilt and shame upon himself whipped to the point of being unrecognizable, pain, and thirst. His GREAT LOVE for us was present in the midst of all of these things that happened to him. Read John3:16-17
~No one made him do it, as he had the power to stop ALL of this. No Jewish person made him, No Gentile person made him, He Willing lay down his life for me, for you, and for us.~ Read John 10:18
He bore the affliction, the pain of the crown of the thrones on his head , his strength depleting from him as He carried his cross after all of the man-made suffering, his body must have already been worn out from the torture just before this event.
|Just one Drop|
Then he being nailed to the cross was reminded of His LOVE for us, Reminded as to why, Innocent as He was and Innocent as he is, did this for us when he said, “Father Forgive them, They know NOT what they are doing.” Luke 23:34
He desired for them to be saved, to receive his gift for each one who comes across Jesus. Even those who wiped him, those who were nailing him to the cross to be forgiven because he loved them. Hoping and believing that they too would believe and be with him.
He did this for past, present and future generations~
|He shed His Blood for You|
He did this for ALL mankind.
The story doesn’t end there …
|He is Risen|
He suffered and died, and though he was buried… He is ALIVE today. You see Jesus rose from the grave on the 3rd day. The power of the Spirit of God raised him. Jesus was a spotless pure sacrifice like that of the Jewish people who sacrifices the spotless pure lamb for the atonement of their sins. Since he chose to die for us and take our punishment…(innocent as he was), Jesus had the authority and power to get the keys of death (Spiritual Death) back from Satan’s grip when it was taken at the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve sinned in the beginning. Jesus also set free the former Righteous people who died before him as now they can be in Heaven where God Dwells because of the death of Jesus.
JESUS IS ALIVE!!!!

He is calling you to be with him!
Jesus is calling you now. He is calling you to receive His free gift. Jesus is the free gift. Just by believing what he did for you ,by asking him to forgive you of your sins and receiving him as Lord and savior with your confession of prayer to which you can make it your own. He says in His Word ~The Holy Bible~ that he would come and be with you. There are so many reasons today to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
1. You get to go to Heaven because that is where He dwells. And you are then spared from Hell to which go those who refuse to believe and walk with Jesus in this life. For Hell is where Jesus and God the father are Not, and they respect a person wishes if that person chooses NOT to believe and receive the free gift for why would you make a person be with you if that person didn’t want to be with you now.
Jesus says that He is the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE. “No one comes to the father (GOD~ who dwells in heaven) expect through him.”
|The Way, The Truth, The Life|
2. You are NOT alone for He is with you. You also get to be a part of a larger family of God.
Jesus says in the word: I am with you always~
3. You get to have a relationship with your creator.
In his Word~ I am a child of God. And as a child of God, He takes care of His children.
4. You get all your Needs met
The bible says, seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and ALL these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
5. You get to be a part of miracles, See great things, experience great things either in yourself or others.
For the bible says, Greater shall you do. Can you imagine that you can be a part of what God is doing in the lives of people? And see wonderful fulfillment of things in your own life as well.
6. You’ll feel that He is, that He is real. Jesus comes with All his goodness. He has a lot of His goodness to share with you. Adventures a waits as you choose him.
Now I’m NOT going to sugar coat this. You will have times of facing challenges, facing things you’d rather NOT, but let those times be the moments where Jesus picks you up, Where he pours more of himself, His love into you to endure times of hardship. And there will also be days of rest from challenges, days of refreshing, days of strengthening for the Joy of the Lord is your strength.
I invite you to let Jesus in. Your Joy will be made complete as you do.
