7 Reasons Jesus Came To Die For You!

Did you know that Jesus, God in the flesh, chose to die in your place—so that you may have life eternal?

That surely is a hard concept to wrap one’s brain around, the fact that someone else would die for us. However it is the truth—Jesus sacrificed Himself because He loves us. It is also truth that humans, with an average life span approximated at 72 years world wide, die. But when we die, what happens? Are the lights now “permanently out”? Is it really “game over”?

Through Jesus’ teachings, Christians know our hope remains in Him for a life after death. Jesus knew His appointment to earth was as the final sacrifice for all sin. He fulfilled that appointment as only the King of kings, the most victorious of all, could. And He did it all for you!

Jesus–The Sermon On The Mount

Matthew 5-7 is known as The Sermon On The Mount. Jesus’ own words comprise all three chapters, save for the first two verses in chapter five and the last two verses in chapter seven.

Matthew 5:1-2 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. He said:

In His sermon, Jesus does not hold back regarding His position on the law—He proclaims God desires heartfelt faithful obedience from His kingdom followers over rote followers of the many manmade religious laws. On this hillside near Capernaum where enormous crowds gathered, those in attendance included some believers and some curiosity seekers coming to find out what this popular man, Jesus, represented.

Was this “man” really the Messiah, The Chosen One, the Savior that Israel had been waiting for since the prophets of old? History reveals this sermon would eternally change many hearts for God.

God’s Response To Prayer Has Many Facets

No two diamonds can ever be the same because of their color, cut, imperfections, and complex characteristics. Each is unique in size, weight, and sparkle.  And just like diamonds, no two prayers are ever the same. Each person praying is unique in their being, and each instance of prayer includes different circumstances and individuals with unlimited problems and requests.

As Christian adults, we experience how prayer works from our time spent studying God’s Word, and, from years actually participating in a daily prayer pattern. Christian adults also know prayer may sometimes happen fast, but often God chooses to use prayer as a way to grow our faith.

So how does God grow us when we come to Him with our requests? The answer has many facets.

Christians—Live Your Faith Through Love

Christians know as fact that God declares us favored in His eyes. We also know we are here by His grace, to worship and proclaim His mighty name. And though some may try to tempt, persuade, lure or belittle the faith of a Christian, no one can ever take Christ’s light away from us.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Knowing attacks would rage against the Christian body to cause harm, God in His wisdom gave us rules of conduct which Christians are to follow, so that Christians will not imitate the ways of evil.

So, how are we to live our Christian faith and declare His praises even while under verbal attack by those of other faiths, doubters, and especially those with pure hatred of Christ followers in their heart?

I would love you to read five important Bible verses where God offers us instruction to this question:
