Saviour and His love

Hello, God has given me something in 1 Chronicles 16:34-35 which says,

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
   his love endures forever.
Cry out, “Save us, God our Savior;
   gather us and deliver us from the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name,
   and glory in your praise.”

David: This is David’s Psalm of praise. God is and was and always will be good, not only good but great. David said this and the most important event in history, the most amazing event in history had not happened yet. David knew God could save him and the Israelites from their enemies, that’s why he said to cry out to God to save them. God was a saviour even before the most saving event in history. David was very thankful to God.

Us: How does these verses apply to us? We should give thanks to God, but our passage also says to cry out to God for saving. Why would we need to be saved? Because of sin. We are sinful. We cannot escape from our sin, and neither could the Israelites, so that is why they had sacrifices. But we don’t have sacrifices, and were not dead, even though we are sinful.

Why aren’t we dead? Because of Jesus. The most important, the most amazing, and the most saving event in history was the cross. When Jesus died on the cross and rose again three days later. Some people say Jesus swooned. Here are some reasons against that: #1 Jesus was speared in the heart. #2 He had a Roman soldier pronounce Him dead, which is the equivalent to being three times dead. #3 He had 1 hundred pounds of sticky stuff on Him in the grave (the things Mary put on Him). Jesus was dead. If He hadn’t died then we would still be stuck in our sin. God sent Him so that we would be saved.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for sending Your only son to die on the cross for us. Thank You, Jesus, for giving Your life up for us on the cross. I pray that I would be closer to You. I pray that I would love You more, and be kinder to those around me. I pray that those Brothers and Sisters in Christ who are suffering would be able to stand strong. I pray that those of us who are in comfort would be able to stand strong against the temptation of not needing Christ like the Laodiceans. Thank You for dying on the cross for us on the cross. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
