Romans 8:2,3 “And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent His own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving His Son as a sacrifice for our sins.”
The Law given through Moses (the 10 Commandments) could not help man in any way to overcome sin or its effects, man just could not keep the laws. He always failed no matter how he tried. That’s why the Father had to send His Son in a human body so that He could subdue and overcome sin in our behalf. He became the sacrifice. When He died on the Cross, ALL sin for ALL man was punished! When He resurrected from the dead, He conquered sin, hell and death! Only He could accomplish that! And He did it for us. He did it for you. So now, when you ask Him to be your Savior and Lord, you can reap the benefits of what He did for you. Now, you have a chance of a better future. You have a chance of a changed life by having a changed heart.
“Jesus, You are my Hope. I have made so many mistakes, but You love me so much, You stood in my behalf and suffered for me so that I can have a future I can look forward to. I don’t understand Your love, but I accept it. Thank You for saving me. Thank You for changing me. Let my life reflect You. Be glorified in my life Lord. Amen.”
