But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7
Why did Jesus die for us? The answer is simple, because Christ loves us. When you understand the price Jesus Christ paid for our souls, and the only reason this was performed was because God loves us, you understand how deep our relationship with God is and should be.
You might ask “how do I know God loves me”? All you have to do is look at the cross, God demonstrated his love towards us, even though we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8) Imagine the Creator dying for his creation, even when his creation didn’t deserve it. That’s why God is “rich in mercy”, Gods grace and love, is so much deeper than our human minds can comprehend.
How did we get saved? It’s very simple, by grace you are saved! We didn’t do anything to “earn” our salvation or “work” our way into Heaven. It’s impossible for us to be able to save ourselves, it’s only by the grace of God that we are saved. As the scripture says “even though we were dead in our sins” even though we were depraved godless sinners, Christ saved us. We became Born Again by the blood of Christ and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It’s only by grace that any of us are saved, period
And one day, we will be raised up, meaning we will be resurrected, with an immortal perfect body, and we will reign with Christ in the Heavenly realm. Think about that, before you were dead in your sins, you were separated from God because of our transgressions, however not only were you forgiven, but you were made a new creature. You were reborn and reconciled back to God as his child, hallelujah to the Lamb of God!
Did we deserve this grace and mercy? Absolutely not, again it’s only because God loves us, that we received his grace and mercy. Can we comprehend this deep love of Gods grace? No, because human love will always fail us, humans will always let us down, but Christ has already redeemed your soul, Jesus will never leave or forsake you, because you were bought by the price of his own blood, Amen!
