“Because He Lives !!”

 

  Written by bruce r. mills for “God’s group”  @ www.Godsmanforever.com

Jeremiah 29:11…   For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  (ESV)

1 Peter 1:3-5…  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the deadto an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (ESV)

What an amazing day I had this past Sunday !!  We as Christians all over the world had reason to celebrate…because Jesus Christ rose from the grave !!   “Because He Lives”, was one of the worship songs we sang in Church this past Resurrection Sunday…and was the inspiration for today’s writing…  [See 2. at the end for a YouTube video of this song]

Here is the chorus for this amazing song…”Because He Lives”…   If you have not heard this song…take the time now and listen to the words of a song filled with the hope and the love of the Lord Jesus Christ, because He lives in us !!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

 

 

Do you have any fears…any anxiety…any doubt about your eternal destiny after you pass on from this life ??  The Apostle John pens this, in…

1 John 4:18…  There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love (ESV)

So how does one become a born again, redeemed child of God, who has “been perfected in love??    If you place your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ…and learn to live a life of obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit that God has indwelt His redeemed children with…all your fears will be gone !!

How do we place our faith and trust in Christ, you ask ??  God has given us the “Good News” Gospel message of the cross, to share with those seeking this perfect love which casts out fear… This Gospel of Christ message is all about our understanding and believing that Jesus died on the cross…was buried…and rose again the 3rd day… We must in saving faith alone (given to us by God), believe that Jesus Christ shed His blood to cover our sins…and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we must repent and turn from our sins with godly sorrow…asking the Lord Jesus Christ to come into our heart and take control of our life…  Jesus Himself tells us this, in the beginning of His ministry, in…

Mark 1:14-15…  Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”  (ESV)

If you have not professed Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior…now is the time to humble yourself, understanding that you can in no way save yourself by any good works done in the name of the Lord… It’s not about going to church every week…  It not about fulfilling all the requirements your church sets before you… Jesus Himself warns those around Him (and us) about believing we can get into heaven by good works done in His name, in…

Matthew 7:21-23…  Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’  (ESV)

Seek the Lord while He may still be found (Isaiah 55:6), and open the link in 1. below for a presentation of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…  By God’s grace, and in God’s perfect timing…you too could be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

Gracious God and heavenly Father…  I am ever so thankful for the hope within me, that I have absolutely no doubt I will be with the Lord Jesus Christ, face to face in heaven one day…  I thank you Father, that You sent Your Son Jesus down to earth…to shed His blood to cover my lifetime of sins…  I pray Father, that You would draw all of those that have yet to obeyed the Gospel of Christ to Yourself…John 6:44…  I pray Father that this would be the day that You regenerate their heart, and redeem them as Your children, saved by grace alone…  I pray for these lives to be born again in Christ…in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ,  bruce
