Hi, God’s word for me today is in Amos 2:6 which says:
“6 This is what the Lord says:
“For three sins of Israel,
even for four, I will not relent.
They sell the innocent for silver,
and the needy for a pair of sandals.”
Amos tells us that Israel had turned away from God and had started doing the things that the nations around them did. They sold the innocent for silver and the needy for a pair of shoes. Even though the Lord had done so many things for them, they still turned away from the Lord. They had not repented and they rejected the Lord.
The Jews actually bought an innocent man (God-man) in order to kill Him. This God-man that they killed is Jesus, the son of God. Why was Jesus on earth? To be our sacrifice! We were sinners who were going to die because of our sins, we needed a perfect sacrifice and Jesus loved us so much that He came to be our sacrifice. He died on the cross as our sacrifice and now He is our living hope because He rose from the grave on the third day. We are saved from our sins because Jesus died for us, that is how much He loved us!
If you have not accepted Jesus’ sacrifice then why don’t you? He came down from heaven and died on the cross for us so that we could live. Why don’t you accept His sacrifice and be saved, He died for your sins so that you would live. It is amazing that the son of God (and God Himself) would love us so much that He sacrificed His love for us!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not die but have eternal life.” (NIV John 3:16)
