Daily Challenge-Remember Why Jesus Died

March 31st, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to remember why Jesus died for us.

Here are three Bible verses that give us compelling reasons.

From Second Corinthians 5:15, “He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” That’s godly purpose.

From First Thessalonians 5:10, “He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.”  That’s a forever relationship between God and His people.

And First John 4:9, “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.” That’s power to live out the good news.

The common thread is that Jesus died so that we might live. His grace moves us to live with godly purpose, in meaningful relationship, and with the strength to press on in the faith.

Take the daily challenge to remember why Jesus died to give us life on the journey of faith.
