R E A L I T Y con’t: He Died For You!

post featured image

Because of Easter, I decided to do a little mini-series called “Reality” about the promise of Jesus. Stick around if you haven’t heard this promise, and if you have, I’d love for you to read this anyway!

On Friday, we talked about how we have all sinned and how we could never save ourselves. Today, which is Easter Sunday, we’re going to talk more about Jesus’ death and the gift of salvation.

null

What I’m going to talk about today can be summed up in many verses (a big list is below), but the main one I’m going to use is 1 Corinthians 15: 3-6

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep.

This passage says that…

  • Christ died for our sins (in accordance with the Scriptures)
  • He was buried
  • He was raised on the third day (in accordance with the Scriptures)
  • He appeared to the 12 disciples

Today is Easter Sunday, which is the day that Jesus rose again. He died on Good Friday (Friday).

Jesus was crucified because the religious leaders of the Jews at that time didn’t like how Jesus was captivating the people. They had believed that their promised Messiah would be a political king who would save them from the Romans, but Jesus, their promised Messiah, came to save them from their sins.

When Jesus died, he took all of our sins on his back if we trust in him.

But if Jesus had just died, there would be no point in trusting in him.

But Jesus didn’t just die! No! He rose again three days later, defeating sin and death forever. And he did it all for you and me.

If you trust in God’s free gift through Jesus and want to have salvation, you can pray and ask God for it.

There’s no specific prayer you have to pray, but you should confess your sin and accept and believe in Jesus Christ.

 

Thank you for reading this post! ❤

These bible verses all sum up the Gospel- if you have some time, reading all of them is really helpful:

He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed (Isa. 53:5)

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45)

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16)

All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name (Acts 10:43)

Through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the Law of Moses (Acts 13:38-39)

He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification (Rom. 4:25)

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Rom. 5:8)

Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures … he was buried. . . . The third day he rose again from the dead, according to the Scriptures . . . and he appeared (1 Cor. 15:3-6)

God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not counting men’s trespasses against them (2 Cor. 5:19)

God made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in him (2 Cor. 5:21)

Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David: this is my Gospel (2 Tim. 2:8) 

He gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good (Titus 2:14) 

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:4-7)

Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him (Heb. 9:28)

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed  (Peter 2:24)

Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God (1 Peter 3:1)

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John 4:10)
