Hi, God’s word for me today is in John 12:46-47 which says,
“46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. 47 “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.”
In this passage it says that Jesus had performed many signs and miracles but the Jews still wouldn’t believe in Jesus. Some of them did believe in Jesus but they were afraid to say so publicly because they were afraid that the Pharisees would throw them out of the synagogue and they like human praise better than God’s praise. Jesus then told them that whoever believed in Him did not only believe in Him but in the one who sent Him (the Lord). Jesus said that whoever looked at Him was looking at the one who sent Him. Then Jesus says that Jesus had come into the world as a light and that whoever believed in Him would no longer walk in darkness. Jesus said that whoever heard His word but did not keep them, that person He wouldn’t judge because He did not come down from heaven to judge the world but to save the world.
How would Jesus save the world? Well we were sinners and we were going to die in our sins but Jesus came down from heaven and took our sins on Him. Jesus took our sins on Him, and then Jesus died on a cross with our sins on Him. Jesus died for our sins on a cross so that we could live. Jesus took God’s wrath on Him along with our sins and He died for us on the cross, that is how Jesus saved the world. Jesus saved us from our sins, He freed us from sin.
We should trust in Jesus! Jesus died for our sins and we should believe in Him, Jesus freed us from our sins. All we have to do is repent of our sins and trust in Jesus, He saves us from our sins and we should trust in Him as our savior. We should believe in Jesus and live, if we trust in Jesus then we will not be judged but we will be covered by Jesus’ blood (spiritually). God will look on us like He looked on His son.
“For God did not send His son to condemn the world but to save the world through Him.” (NIV John 3:17)
We should trust in Jesus! We should also give out the light, Jesus said that He was the light and that whoever believed in Him wouldn’t walk in the darkness any longer. We should give out the Gospel that Jesus died for our sins to unbelievers. We should give them the light so that they will not be in the darkness any longer, we should help them to see the light and to be a child of the light. We should help them to trust in Jesus.
Thank You Jesus for dying for our sins on the cross. Thank You Jesus for giving us the light and for making us children of the light by dying for our sins on the cross. 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 loving us enough to be our atoning sacrifice. Thank You Jesus for doing all that You have done for us. Thank You Jesus for dying for us on the cross!
Are you trusting in Jesus?
