Jesus died for ALL of our sins on the cross. But, Jesus wasn’t a criminal, or a sinful man. He was perfect, he had no mistakes, he had no sins, yet, he died for ours. Even though we turn our backs on him and sin, he still loves us and continues to pursue us. Think about it, if your best friend betrayed you and turned her back on you, what would you do? Honestly, I would not try to be friends with her again. I wouldn’t pursue her and continue to love her and be her friend. I would go and find other friends. But, Jesus still wants to be your friend, even though your were super rude to Him.
We deserve death. He didn’t, but he still died for us. With all the power in the world, he still died for us on a cross. The cross is where our slates are wiped clean from the dirtiness of sin. He washed them white as snow. Isn’t that just AMAZING! Lets all take a moment to think deeply about this…
Jesus loves us so much that he died for us and took all our sins away. He wants us to be his best friend and loves us no matter what. No human could ever do such things. But Jesus can and will. Because he loves us that much
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
