Jesus Died For Us

Jesus Died for Us, Roy Lessin, Series, photo by Marina Bromley

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NKJV)

Jesus died for us!

Jesus died for us because we needed a Savior. Sermons will be preached throughout the world during this time of year that proclaim this precious truth, “Jesus died for us.” The Gospel proclaims that God not only loved the world, but He loved you; that God not only sent His Son to die for the sins of the world, but He sent His Son to die for your sins.

Jesus died and rose for you. Does this not say it all?

Jesus died and rose for you!
If you only knew this one truth, it would be sufficient.
If you only had this loaf of spiritual bread to eat, it would satisfy your hunger.
If you only had this living water to drink, it would quench your spiritual thirst.
Jesus died and rose for you.
This is the taproot from which the tree of life grows.
This is the headwater from which the healing river flows.
This is the pen from which the great doctrines of faith are written—justification, sanctification, redemption, salvation—Jesus died and rose for you.

Jesus died and rose for you.
This is your true hope, your eternal hope, your blessed hope.

Does God love you?
Yes…Jesus died and rose for you.

Does God care about you?
Yes…Jesus died and rose for you.

Does God forgive you, save you, receive you, and call you His own?
Yes…Jesus died and rose for you.

 

The New

I came with my struggles and found Your peace,
I came with my bondage and found Your release.
I came with my burdens and found Your care.
I came with my loneliness and found You there, 

I came with my weakness and found You strong,
I came with my heaviness and found Your song.
I came with my questions and found You true,
I came with my tattered ways and found the new.
