Well today my eleven year old Amish neighbor girl came before 8 o'clock this morning to wash our car and our neighbor, Dawn's car. I think she was having to much fun. She asked if she could play the radio and put on some country tunes. Of course who doesn't like to have music when there working. The best part was when Dawn came over with her car, Dawn held up an earring to show Cindy and told her that she lost an earring just like this one and if she found it in her car there would be a bonus for her. Well wouldn't you know Cindy came in the front door with a big smile and an earring in her hand. I'm not quite sure if Cindy did as good of job as she did the last time but Grandpa reminded me she is eleven years old. She was so excited to have a job and earn a few dollars. She will wash the car every other Saturday.
(How Jesus Came Into My Life)
I believe I ended yesterday with I wanted more information on what Jesus did for me. This information I'm going to give you comes from a Discovery Series Bible Study.
The word gospel means "good news." The gospel of Christ is that God Himself loved us enough to send His own Son into this world to rescue us from ourselves and our sin (John 1:1-4; 3:16) That is the Book of John, Chapter one, verses one thru four; and chapter three, verse 16.
The good news is that Jesus lived the quality of life that God intended for us to live. Without flaw. He loved His heavenly Father with all of His heart, soul, and mind. Without fail, He showed us what it means to love our neighbor as ourselves.
Then , to solve the problem of our lost relationship with His Father, Jesus died in our place, offering Himself as a perfect sacrifice to pay the price of sin. Because He was not only man but God our Creator as well (John 1:1-14). His death was of infinite value. When He rose from the dead, He proved that He had died in our place to pay the price of all sin--past, present, and future. With one sacrifice, He paid for the least--and the worst --of our sin.
THIS IS WHAT JESUS DID FOR ME AND FOR YOU
Tomorrow will be what we need to do.
