mother closed her eyes forever .


Jesus loves you so much that He did

this. How can you keep yourself from
loving Him for what He has done for
you? No one has given more to you
than Jesus and God the Father. No one
cares for you more, no one wants to
give you more, no one wants you to
succeed more than they do. How
blessed are you that God loves you so
much? God humbled Himself to
become a man like you and to die for
you so that you could know the joy of
living an abundant eternal life not in the
flesh, but in the spirit, not in the midst of
sin but in the kingdom where every tear
will be wiped away and there will be no
more pain or sorrow or death
(Revelation 21).

Jesus became the perfect sacrifice to

pay for your sins. He accomplished
many purposes in His coming and the
first was to learn what it was like to be
human. He was human without
sinning. He became a living sacrifice for
mankind. Then he became an offering
for all sin when He had the sins of
mankind laid on Him through a terrible
beating (Isaiah 53). And finally, He was
put to death on the cross, paying the
death penalty for sin.

The offer of Christ’s sacrifice to you is

this: Jesus says, let Me take your sins
for you and I will give you my
righteousness. That is a deal you can’t
pass up. Make Jesus the Savior of your
life. Allow him to take all your sins and
impute to you His own righteousness
(Romans 4:5-8). Make Him the Lord of
your life. Follow His teachings and live
by His ways so that your life can be a
blessing both to God and to
others. Only when all who live turn and
live God’s way will there be peace and
righteousness, goodness and mercy,
