Jesus came to die

     Recently, an email from a friend included the words, “Jesus came to die! Amen.”  This is the gospel; and this gospel is written over the pages of the Word.
     Jesus Christ came to die…  “For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” (2 Cor 5:14,15)
     The intent and the provision is that Jesus Christ came to die..to give himself as a ransom for all(1 Tim 2:6) So that… those who live (eternal life) might no longer live for themselves (the flesh) but for him who for their sake died and was raised…our Redeemer and King.
     The provision of grace through the Cross…through Jesus Christ, broke the power of sin. Now we reflect the glory of the Cross…the glory of grace…the glory of Christ, as we ‘no longer live for ourselves, but for HIM…’
Amen.
