The Pride of Jacob

Hi, God’s word from me today is in Amos 6:8 which says:

The Sovereign Lord has sworn by himself —the Lord God Almighty declares:

“I abhor the pride of Jacob 
    and detest his fortresses; 
I will deliver up the city
    and everything in it. ”

The Lord said that they abhorred the pride of Jacob, or Israel. Israel had turned away from God and Israel was prideful. God abhorred the pride of Jacob and He detested the fortresses of Jacob. God would deliver up the city and everything in it. Because Israel had turned away from the Lord, He was going to destroy them.

The same was for us! We were going to die with our sins on us, we were prideful and we were sinners. We were going to be destroyed because of our sins. But the son of God died for us so that we could live! Jesus loved us so much that He died for our sins on the cross! Now we are saved if we trust in Jesus! We can’t possibly be prideful after how Jesus died for us on the cross! It is amazing that Jesus would die for us on the cross! He actually died for us on a cross!

If you have not trusted in Jesus then why don’t you trust in Jesus and live? We were going to die with our sins on us, but Jesus died for us on the cross! If you have not believed in Jesus then why don’t you? He loved us so much that He died for us, if you have not trusted in Him then you are not saved from your sins. We would have been destroyed but now we are delivered because Jesus died for us! Why don’t you trust in Jesus and be saved from your sins?

Thank You Jesus for dying for us on the cross! Thank You Jesus for dying for us so that we could live! Praise God that we have been saved from our sins because Jesus died for us. Praise the Lord that we are delivered from God’s wrath because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross! Thank You Jesus for loving us sinners enough to die for us so that we could live! It is amazing that Jesus actually died for us so that we could live, the son of God (and God Himself) actually died for us so that we could live! Then He rose from the grave on the third day and ascended into heaven! Thank You Jesus!

Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
