So often times we focus on the power, miracles, and healings of Jesus; that we forget the greatest gift given to man. We are excited about the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the anointing and the prosperity. We want to have abundance, blessing, and favour, and live a good and prosperous life on earth that we forget about the best and most precious blessing. We forget the greatest most important point of following God. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him will not have to die and perish forever in hell, but so that we can live for eternity with Jesus in heaven. Hell is a terrible and hideous place; it is full of pain and horror that never ends. Hell is a place of torment where there is no hope, no life, no joy, and no peace. It is constant and continual torment. Hell is a place of fire and brimstone, and a place of never ending torture and pain. There is no escape, no relief, no ending; people hang on crosses, burning, and screaming out in pain; demons torture and flames consume; the most unimaginable pain and hopelessness, full of darkness and scorching heat. This is what Jesus came to rescue us from!!! This is why Jesus came, so we did not have to endure such a thing. And we have forgotten to an extent the significance of this very precious gift. Oh, how much God loves us!!! If only the world knew! If only the world knew of this precious and priceless gift! It’s unimaginable!!!
The church is so busy condemning the world when God came to not condemn but to save!!! John 3:16 clearly states: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
If only, us, the Church, the believers of God would stop pointing out the sin in people, and start showing people how great God’s love is for them. Jesus loves us so much! He came to die for us because if He did not then everyone of us would die and eternally burn in Hell. God’s love for us was so great, and He saw that we only live here on earth for 100 years but then when we die we don’t cease to exist, no, we instead would die forever in Hell, not being able to escape never ending pain and torture. God wants the world to know what He did for them; His great endless and unconditional love for them. We need to live in love, God’s love. We need to live the way Jesus did, in compassion and love. And tell the people around us that Jesus died to save them from eternity in hell. Jesus died to rescue us out of unimaginable, never-ending pain. He loves us that much!
The greatest gift ever given, and that will ever be given, is the death of Jesus on the cross for us, how He died a pain filled death that He did not deserve so that we could live forever with Him in Paradise….If only we believed….If only the world knew such an amazing gift of God!!!
“Thank You Daddy God for your great love for me! Thank You, for dying for me, and taking my place, my sin, so that I did not have to go to hell; but I can now live with you forever in Heaven. Thank You for the great price that You paid so that I could have a free but priceless gift. Thank You for coming into this world for me. I pray, Father God, that I will not forget all that You did for me, and that I will remember the cost and the sacrifice that You bore so that I could know You. I want to know You, love You, and walk with You, God. Thank You for dying for me!”
Shalom, and let the love of God consume and change your life,
