Hi, God’s word for me today is in Ecclesiastes 12:7 which says (and it is saying that we should remember the man who dies when this happens), “And the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”
So in the verse before it explains this one, anyway this verse says that God gave the spirit who goes back up to Him, that kind of reminds me of what Jesus said to Pilate, ”
Jesus answered him,
“You would have no authority over me at all unless it had been given you from above. Therefore he who delivered me over to you has the greater sin. (ESV John 19:11)
So God has power of everything, everything we do, eat, say even think, God has planned it all, and He also planned Jesus dying on the cross, the disciples and Mary and other people thought it was a bad thing that Jesus died, but really He died so that we could go free of our sin, so that we wouldn’t suffer God’s wrath, thank you so much Jesus.
So God has the power over everything, if He wanted to He could have made it so that Jesus didn’t die, like Jesus Himself Pilate didn’t have any power over Him accept for what God gave him, but if Jesus didn’t die then we would still suffer the consequenses of our sin, God does still punish us for our sin, but we don’t get thrown into hell if we believe in Jesus, thank you so much Jesus.
So Jesus died for our sins on the cross, even though He was (and is) perfect, and even though we were sinners and we didn’t (and still don’t) deserve for Him to.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins?
