Hi, God’s word for me today is in John 6:19-21 which says,
“19 When they had rowed about three or four miles,[b]they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened. 20 But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” 21 Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.”
The disciples were going to Capernaum and a storm hit them. After they had rowed for about three or four miles Jesus approached the boat, the disciples were afraid because they saw a man walking on the water but Jesus said “it is I, don’t be afraid” and they were willing to take Him into the boat. When Jesus got into the boat they immediately reached their destination.
When the disciples took Jesus into the boat they immediately reached their destination. Just like if we accept Jesus as our savior, if we let Him into our hearts then we will be out of the stormy water. How can Jesus be our savior? Well we were sinners in need of a savior and we were going to die with God’s wrath and our sins on us. But Jesus came down from heaven and took our sins and God’s wrath on Him so that we could live, He died on a cross with God’s wrath and our sins on Him so that we could have eternal life. If we trust in Jesus and accept Him then we will be out of the stormy seas of sin. Jesus died for our sins so that we could live.
Jesus died for us with our sins and God’s wrath on us and now if we repent of our sins and trust in Jesus, we can be saved. Jesus died for us because He loved us, and we should love Him and accept Him as our savior. We should believe in Him so that we can live, we should trust in Him so that we can have eternal life. Jesus died for us on a cross, that is truly amazing. We should trust in Jesus, Jesus is the only way to have life, the only way to be free from our sins. We should trust in Him as our savior, as our atoning sacrifice. We should believe in him so that we can have eternal life.
If we try to row our way out of the storm of sin, it won’t work. But if we are willing to take Jesus as our savior then we will be out of the storm. We should trust in Jesus and we should help others to do the same. We should help others to accept Christ as their savior. Jesus is the only way to have life and we should help others have life by giving them the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We should help others to accept Jesus as their savior too, we should share the Gospel of Jesus with them so that they can live.
Thank You Jesus for coming down from heaven as our atoning sacrifice. Thank You Jesus for taking all of God’s wrath and our sins on You and then dying on the cross for us. Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to die for our sins, thank You Jesus for dying for us. Thank You Jesus for rising again on the third day and then ascending into heaven to mediate on our behalf and to prepare a place for us. Thank You Jesus for dying for us so that we could live. Thank You Jesus for all that You have done for us.
Are you trusting in Jesus?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
