Jesus didn’t have to

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” No sin = no death. Jesus was and is immortal. He didn’t have to die. Jesus GAVE His life for us.

At its core, sin is rebellion against God. Rebellion against God is what happened in the Garden of Eden. It is what separates us from God today. “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith,”.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,” . Sin is what prevents us from seeing the glory of God. Perhaps even from seeing God. However, through Jesus, by grace and faith, we have salvation.

Jesus chose to give His life to offer us a way to see God. Many accept Jesus and yet don’t see God. To see, one must look. I hope that all of us will understand and look for God. God isn’t that hard to find. God is all around us.

Blessings to you,
