Hi, God’s word for me today is in 1 Peter 2:24-25 which says,
““He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,”[a]but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”
Peter is talking about Jesus in these verse, He is talking about Jesus and how He took our sins on Him. Peter says that we were like sheep that had gone astray but now we have returned to the shepherd, in other words Jesus has come and rescued us from the thorns of our sins. By His wounds we are healed, by His blood we have been made clean, by His death we are sons and daughters of God.
Jesus came down from heaven to die for our sins. He exchanged being the son of God so that we could be the sons and daughters of God, His blood was shed so that we could live. He is our shepherd and we are His sheep. Imagine a little sheep going astray, wandering off to where he thinks good grass is. Soon when night comes the little sheep becomes lost and then he gets tangled in some thorns and no matter how hard he struggles, he can’t get out. The shepherd looks at his sheep and counts them, he only counts 99 so he goes to look for the little sheep and when he finds it, he immediately starts pulling the thorns off of the little sheep. When he’s done he has scrapes on his hands, he picks up the sheep and puts it in the sheep pen. That is what Jesus did for us, we were little sheep and Jesus saved us from our sins. Thank You so much Jesus.
We should accept Jesus as our savior. His wounds saved us from our sins, His blood purified us so that we were clean before God. He was (and is) perfect and He was (and is) the son of God (and God Himself ) and He actually came down from heaven to die for our sins on the cross. We should accept Him as our savior and be saved from our sins, we should trust in Him so that we can be cleaned, thank You Jesus for coming down from heaven for us.
If you are an unbeliever you should come to Christ, you should want to come to Christ. If you are a believer you should want unbelievers come to Christ, you should share the Gospel with unbelievers and we should believe in Christ ourselves. Jesus is our savior and we should help to lead little lost sheep to the shepherd. Even though sin says that it is delicious green grass (in other words it looks desirable) but really it is a thorn-bush. We should come to Jesus and help others come to Jesus.
Thank You Jesus for dying for our sins on the cross. Thank You that by Your wounds we are healed, thank You that You are the shepherd and the over-seer of our souls. Thank You Jesus that we can trust in You to be saved from our sins. Thank You Jesus for everything that You have done for us. Thank You for being our sacrifice so that we can live, so that we can be perfect in God’s sight. Thank You for making us sons and daughters of God. Thank You for giving us Your perfection.
Are you trusting in Jesus as your savior?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
