Why Jesus Died Part Three
JOHN SHIRK – First John 4:9 and 10 says, “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Only through Jesus can we be restored to a right relationship with God, the Father. According to the Bible, the message of the cross is the source of God’s power to the Christian. (First Corinthians 1:18) Through Jesus we live and move and have our being. He is our source of strength, by which we can do productive things for God. Without Him, we can do nothing. (John 15:5) The message of the cross humbles us to rely on God’s strength instead of depending on our own.
By faith in Jesus Christ to save us, we have the reality of eternal life and the power to live a productive life that brings glory to His name.
That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.
