Title: BECAUSE JESUS DIED


1
BECAUSE JESUS DIED ROMANS 56-8
2
The darkest day that ever dawned on earth was the
day Jesus was crucified.
As for His disciples
One had betrayed Him
One denied Him
All had forsaken Him.
He was
beaten
spat upon
humiliated.
Then He was led to Calvary to die an excruciating
and painful death.
But because Jesus died great blessings are ours.
So on this Memorial Day weekend as we remember
Jesus, we should also remember the blessings we
have because He died.
Because Jesus Died
3
We Know The Love Of God That Passes All
Knowledge.
Ephesians 313-19
Therefore I ask that
you do not lose heart at my tribulations for you,
which is your glory. For this reason I bow my
knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is
named, that He would grant you, according to the
riches of His glory, to be strengthened with
might through His Spirit in the inner man, that
Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith
that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may
be able to comprehend with all the saints what is
the width and length and depth and height to
know the love of Christ which passes knowledge
that you may be filled with all the fullness of
God.

Who can understand the love of God?
4
Psalms 84
What is man that
You are mindful of him, And the son of man that
You visit him?
Why would He send His Son for such unworthy
people as us?
Romans 510
For if when we
were enemies we were reconciled to God through
the death of His Son, much more, having been
reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
He sent His Son to die for His enemy.
Can you explain this?
5
Isaiah 558-9
For My
thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways
My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are
higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than
your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
Though we cannot comprehend why, we should know
that God did send His Son to die for us.
John 316
For God so
loved the world that He gave His only begotten
Son, that whoever believes in Him should not
perish but have everlasting life. For God did not
send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved.
I John 49-10
In this the
love of God was manifested toward us, that God
has sent His only begotten Son into the world,
that we might live through Him.
6
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that
He loved us and sent His Son to be the
propitiation for our sins.
Romans 56-8
While we were
still weak, at the right time Christ died for the
ungodly. Why, one will hardly die for a
righteous man--though perhaps for a good man one
will dare even to die. But God shows his love
for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ
died for us.
Romans 832
He who
did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up
for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely
give us all things?
Romans 838-39
For I am
persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels
nor principalities nor powers, nor things present
nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any
other created thing, shall be able to separate us
from the love of God which is in
Christ Jesus our Lord.

7
We Have A Great Divine Companion.
Christ has promised to always be us.
Hebrews 135-6
For He Himself
has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake
you.'' So we may boldly say "The Lord is my
helper I will not fear. What can man do to
me?''
He intercedes for us.
Hebrews 725
Therefore He
is also able to save to the uttermost those who
come to God through Him, since He ever lives to
make intercession for them.
He is our Mediator.
I Timothy 25
For there is
one God and one Mediator between God and men, the
Man Christ Jesus.

There Is A Gospel To Be Preached That Can Save
People From Their Sins.
The word Gospel means Good News.
If a person is sick in the hospital and the
doctor says that he is cured, he can go home,
thats good news.
When a person is deep in debt and they learn that
they have fallen heir to a million dollars,
thats good news.
Soldiers coming home from war, thats good news.
The greatest news of all is that of
SALVATION AND HOPE FOR A LOST WORLD!
9
Jesus died for a lost world to give everyone hope
and the opportunity to receive eternal life.
JESUS DIED
We are called to this good news through the
gospel.
II Thessalonians 214
To which He
called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of
the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Surely we would want to tell others about this
good news.
Mark 1615-16
"Go into all
the world and preach the gospel to every
creature. He who believes and is baptized will
be saved but he who does not believe will be
condemned.
We need to tell others about this gospel because
all have sinned, but some do not know about the
salvation that is found in Jesus Christ.
10
Romans 623
For the wages
of sin is death, but the free gift of God is
eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 116-17
For I am not
ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the
power of God to salvation for everyone who
believes, for the Jew first and also for the
Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is
revealed from faith to faith as it is written,
"The just shall live by
faith.''
I John 17-10
But if we
walk in the light as He is in the light, we have
fellowship with one another, and the blood of
Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive
ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we
confess our sins, He is faithful and just to
forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness. If we say that we have not
sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not
in us.
11
We Have A Home Waiting For Us At The End Of The
Way.
II Corinthians 416-51
Therefore we do not lose
heart. Even though our outward man is perishing,
yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a
moment, is working for us a far more exceeding
and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look
at the things which are seen, but at the things
which are not seen. For the things which are
seen are temporary, but the things which are not
seen are eternal. For we know that if our
earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a
building from God, a house not made with hands,
eternal in the heavens.
12
There is only one way to the this home.
Jesus Christ
He is preparing a home for us.
John 141-6
"Let not
your heart be troubled you believe in God,
believe also in Me. In My Father's house are
many mansions if it were not so, I would have
told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
again and receive you to Myself that where I am,
there you may be also. And where I go you know,
and the way you know.'' Thomas said to Him,
"Lord, we do not know where You are going, and
how can we know the way?'' Jesus said to him, "I
am the way, the truth, and the life. No one
comes to the Father except through Me.
13
Because Jesus died many great blessings are ours.
We Know The love God.
We Have A Divine Companion.
We Have A Gospel That Can Be Preached To Save
People From Their Sins.
We Have Home Waiting For Us In Heaven.
ARE YOU TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF THESE BLESSINGS?
