Devotion – October 1, 2015 – Christ Died To Bring You To God

1peter3_18For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.
—1 Peter 3:18

“Once and for all.”  It’s a pretty amazing statement when you think about it.  We don’t have many things today that are forever.  Promises are broken.  Friendships drift apart.  People get divorced.  We die.  But Jesus died for sins once and for all.  It’s done.  Your sins are covered by His blood.  It won’t run out.  It won’t end.  No sin is too great.  The righteous one, the Son of God, died for us unrighteous…why?  To bring you to God.

Jesus had a purpose in His death.  He became a man, lived, and died for a reason, to bring you to God.  In Christ, you are no longer separated from God.  Christ has called you and has brought you to God…and this is forever.

Dear Jesus,

You loved us so much that You gave your life in order to bring us..to bring me to God.  Thank you.  When doubts creep up in my mind and I wonder if all my sins have been forgiven or if Your death was really enough, remind of this promise, that you died for sins once and for all to bring me to God.  It is more than enough.

Amen
