"I'm not guilty!" Think Again...
"I'm not guilty!" Think Again
by David Brenneman
Oh the countless multitudes that will one day stand before Jesus at the final judgment. Oh the millions per day waking up in Hell, convinced that they shouldn't be there. That God had somehow made a mistake.
Not exactly what thoughts you might have right before Christmas, a time of joy and celebration, huh?
Well, when you consider that in all truthfulness Jesus is the reason for the season...it makes perfect sense.
Jesus came to die for what you and I are born guilty of. Adam and Eve's sin has been perpetuated throughout history. It's in our DNA, our blood. Jesus knew that only a perfect, holy, sacrifice could possibly answer the verdict of "guilty!".
The Father’s plan included His Son willingly giving His life after living a sinless life to make it possible for His greatest creation to be able to be with Him, with them.
We are born in the guilt and shame of sin. Jesus's shed blood, and the salvation that comes through it, washes away all the guilt and judgment of sin.
Without salvation in Christ Jesus there is no remission of sin. That's what the Bible says clearly.
Any who die, knowingly rejecting salvation in Jesus Christ, will never escape the judgment of God.
My Dear Reader, Jesus left everything to make it possible for you to never have to see Hell. To make it possible for you to know the true love of God. To show you a still better way. That you would know the love of God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
The celebration this time of year isn't meant to only be for the 25th of December. We should celebrate all year round. Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so, little ones to Him belong they are weak but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.
The Heavens broke out in song at the revealing of Jesus being born. The heavens rejoicing. They knew that the love of God was reaching out to sinful man and woman.
The worst mistake anyone can make is to die believing that on their own merits they don't deserve to go to Hell.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Jesus is ready to wash your sins away, removing the guilt of your sin.
Let Christmas have a new meaning for you in that you have a new life in Christ Jesus.
See what life is really meant to be.
