Has Anyone Told You What God Has Done For You?
My text will be drawn from Romans 5:8. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (To commend is to speak in favor of or to praise.)
So the love that God showed us is praise worthy because even though we are sinners Christ still died for us. That’s true love. A few might die for a loved one but even fewer, if any, would die for an enemy, however, that’s just what God did.
You see we are all sinners by nature and by birth. That’s why you don’t have to teach a children to lie. They know that by nature. That is, it is in their nature to do wrong. What you have to teach children to do is to do right and they don’t always like it and if you are an honest person you don’t always like doing right either…if you are honest. Age doesn’t matter and you are still a sinner whether old or young—according to the Holy Bible.
So because of our sin nature and because God is holy we are automatically an enemy with God. We just can’t get along with a holy God and he won’t get along with us. He’s holy and we are not. So out of his love for the world the Bible declares in John 3:16…For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
So one day God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ volunteered to come down here to earth to die for us sinners and for the ungodly. …Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6
That’s the good news! For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures… 1st Corinthians 15:3-4.
The Lord Jesus Christ came down here to die on an old rugged cross to pay for our sins with his own blood. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins… Colossians 1:14.
He was buried and three days later he came up from the grave to defeat death. Now those that trust him for their means to go Heaven will be able to defeat death also. …because I live, ye shall live also. John 14:19.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:10.
What about it, reader? Now that you know what God did for you wouldn't you want to go to Heaven when you die? If you do, why don’t you call on Him right now to save you from your sins and Hell? The Bible says, For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13.
Don’t wait till tomorrow. That’s a trick of the Devil. For you, tomorrow may never come.
