If you have read my previous blogs you would have read the answers for the basic questions- Who is God?, What does God do?, Where is God?. I want to share the foundation of all these and the good and amazing news that you will ever hear, carry on to read with an open mind and see the Holy spirit do the rest.
The foundation is the good news, the good news is the cross. If I talk about everything else about the love of God and his awesomeness and don’t talk about the cross I will be missing the whole point and not minimising His unconditional love He has on you and missing the whole plan of inclusion and redemption of the world to himself.
The cross is very important, not the wooden cross itself but what God did on that cross and what happened to us. “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”- Romans 5:8. The cross was Daddy God demonstrating His love for us by sending His ONLY son Jesus to the world to live, die and raise again for us. Let me ask you a question, how many of you who would die for your friend, I think there would be a few people like that but how many of you would die for people who are against you and might not even value you and your life and wouldn’t accept the price you paid- I am sure nobody would do that. You will ask why should you die for people who will not even recognise it. That is what God did, He sent His only Son to die for you on the cross to show He will do anything for you even though you might not even want Him, that is love.
When you accept Jesus’s sacrifice and accept Him as the Lord the Triune God [Father, Son(Jesus), Holy Spirit] lives in you. The cross was never God’s plan to become a religious symbol but an expression of His love to show that He will go any distance to show that He loves you. I want to point out to everyone that there was more that happened on the cross.
Paul tells us what happened on the cross “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”- Galatians 2:20, when Jesus was crucified on the cross He took your place and died instead of you so that you will not be judged under sin and that the righteousness of Jesus Christ is imputed[ascribe to someone by virtue of a similar quality in another] to you. Once you accept Jesus, Jesus lives in you and His life[righteous, holy, blameless and sinless] becomes yours, that is your reality when God sees you.
Without the cross and Jesus’s death and resurrection there is no life and hope. Everything- righteousness, holiness, joy, peace and love can and will be experienced in a person’s life when they know what happened in them because of what Jesus has done on the cross. The cross is where the reversal from sinner to saint happened.
The Good news is, this is all free and all it takes to live a God life is to accept God and the sacrifice of Jesus and it is a gift to you from God. Knowing what happened on the cross and knowing who you are in Christ is the secret to tap into the supernatural and live your life to the fullest.
