What is the best kind of friend anyone ever had? One who laid their life down for you. Jesus laid his life down for us, even when we didn’t know him. He died for us to make us his friends, to save us from sin and death, and to give us life eternal.
Life beyond death’s grasp
100% of those who live will come to the end of their lives. This is because we are separated from our Life Giver. So Jesus came to earth and died for us to break the power of death and to make a path through the shadow of death into eternity.
If we die with Jesus, we will live forever with him.
Life for God
Jesus not only died to give us eternal life, but also to reclaim us from that thing which brings death, which is sin (Romans 6:23).
Thus, we intend to live free of sin, because “No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God.” (1 John 3:9)
We now live for God, no longer for sin.
Trust in Jesus’ work on the cross and in the resurrection. Live for Him. Read your Bible, and pray daily. Seek God while He is calling you.
