Hi, God’s word for me today is in Amos 8:9 which says:
“9 “In that day,” declares the Sovereign Lord,
“I will make the sun go down at noon
and darken the earth in broad daylight.”
The Lord is telling the Israelites that He is going to darken the earth in the day, the sun was going to go down at noon! Does this point forward to anything? Yes! The Gospel! Jesus (the son of God and God Himself) died for us on the cross with our sins on Him. At the cross sky became dark and the sun did not shine even though it was not night. Why would that happen? Because God was pouring out His wrath on His son, so that we could live!
Isn’t it amazing that Jesus would actually die for our sins on the cross? Now if we trust in Jesus then we will live! We lived in a permanent black hole, we lived in darkness, but if we trust in Jesus then we will have light! Why don’t you trust in Jesus and be saved from your sins? Jesus went through complete darkness and He had our sins and God’s wrath on Him for us so that we could live!
As Christians we should share the Good news that Jesus died for us on the cross! We should tell unbelievers the Gospel so that they can be saved from their sins and live! At the cross everything was dark because all of our sins and God’s wrath were on Jesus because Jesus died for us. Jesus loved us so much that He atoned for our sins on the cross, we should tell that to unbelievers so that they can trust in Jesus and have the light! Jesus is the light, and now we should share the light!
Thank You Jesus for dying for us on the cross!
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
