October Devotions 2018: THE CROSS
The cross is the symbol of our Christian Faith. Without what Jesus did by dying on the cross for our sins we would not have eternal life. Being a good person or giving a large sum of money to help others or trying to live a moral life are fine things to do, but nothing you can do will be enough to assure you a place in heaven. We have all sinned. God sent His only son that whosoever believes in Him will have life forever. God did not send His only son, Jesus, into the world to condemn the world but that through Him, we might be saved. (from John 3:16,17) All those good deeds are fine and we will want to do them when we believe. Most importantly, we want others to see their need to know Jesus and believe in Him as their Savior.
Have you thought you could get to heaven without the CROSS? My friend, you are mistaken. Come to Jesus. His love is there for you. Life is not perfect. Ask Him to help you along this way in life and He will. You have to believe in Him. Please sincerely have faith in Him.
