In His Word Wednesday
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (NIV)
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.(NIV)
This week we remember the work done on the cross. Because of our sins, we deserve death. But, though he was sinless, Jesus took our place. By putting our faith in his redeeming work we can live forever. Nothing we can do can earn us salvation . . . all we need is a child-like faith in the ONE who sacrificed himself on that tree. Have you put your faith in Christ's redeeming work? If not . . . why not now?
And if you have . . . REJOICE in the new life we have been given!!
