Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 49:13 which says, “Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.”
Why does He do that? Why does He comfort His people, I thought that since we are sinners, and God only accepts perfect people. Well first of all what did this mean to them? Because before we can go to far we have to know what it meant for them, it really meant what is says. That He comforts His people, and that meant that He comforted them, just like how He comforts us. So again why does He comfort us even though we are sinners? Because Jesus died for us! He took on our sins, and so God looks at us as though He was looking at Jesus. Of course we still sin, but the Holy Spirit is in us and He is making us more and more like Jesus, thank you Jesus.
Jesus died for our sins so that we could go free of them, of course that doesn’t give us a license to sin, ”
Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
We are dead to our sins and and alive in Christ, thank you so much Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins on the cross?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
