Hi, God’s word for me today is in Ecclesiastes 8:5 which says, “Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.”
So Solomon is talking about a king, he says that whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, and he is right, but we can also take this to mean that if we obey God perfectly, then we will come to no harm, so all we have to do is you know, be perfect, only problem is that we can’t be perfect, so are we just going to be punished and go to hell, I mean that’s kind of depressing, knowing my life is useless just ’cause I’m going to hell when I die, well actually that is why Jesus died, because we would all take on our punishment of sin, but because Jesus died on the cross with all fo our sins on Him we can go free, we are free from sin, we are captive to Christ, because He drew (or dragged) us to Him kicking and screaming, but once we realize that it is because He loves us and that He died for us, wer are thankful, or we should be thankful, thank you so much Jesus.
So Jesus died for our sins, because He loves us, and He doesn’t (and won’t) love us because of anything we have done, thank you so much Jesus for dying for our sins. But that doesn’t mean we can keep on sinning, Paul says so in the end of Romans 5 and the beginning of Romans 6, he says that we are dead to sin, so we shouldn’t live in it, thank you Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins?
