Rejoicing

Verse: Hello, God has given me something in 1 Kings 8:66 which says,

“On the following day he sent the people away. The blessed the king and then went home, joyful and glad in heart for all the good things the Lord had done for his servant David and his people Israel.”

God did so much: So, what God has given me, is that God did a lot for Israel and for David,  and He also did a lot for us, He sent His only Son, to die on a cross in our place, to save sinners (also known as us), and those who have done wrong, and are thinking to themselves, ‘How am I suppose to live up to that, I’m not perfect?’ But Jesus lived up to that for us, and He gave us His righteousness, and took us into His fold.

Jesus: JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR US!!!! How complicated is that? Not very, it’s simple, Jesus died in our place, and He took our punishment, and now we can go to heaven! But that does NOT meen that we should sin all we want and say, ‘Jesus took my sin, so it’s okay.’ BY NO MEENS! Paul says so in Romans 6:1-4 which says,

“What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”

Believing: Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross in our place?
