Someone may ask why would I want to give my life to Jesus. They might ask what is in it for me?When we realize what Jesus has done for us the better question is what can I do for Jesus. However, to answer their question here are just a few things Jesus has does for us.
“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Phil 2:13
Jesus Died for You. God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. "There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." John 15:13 (NLT)
Jesus Works in You. “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Phil 2:13 It is amazing that by His supernatural power God works in us to be what He wants us to be.
Jesus Pours Out His Love on You. “But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him." Ps 103:17 (NLT) It is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit’s nature to love unselfishly. He pours it out on you. Receive it.
Jesus Stands with You. "The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage!" Acts 23:11 (BSB). Jesus wants to meet you in middle of your struggle. No matter what your struggles or circumstance if Jesus doesn’t deliver you ‘out’ of them He wants to stand with you ‘in’ them.
Jesus Prays for You. "Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us." Rom 8:34 (ESV). He covers you in prayer even when you aren’t aware of dangers all around.
Jesus Sings with You. He says: “I will proclaim Your name to My brothers; I will sing Your praises in the assembly.” Heb 2:12. When we gather as disciples of Christ and sing praise to the Father Jesus joins His Bride and sings with her. Can you sense His presence next to you as you stand with the family of faith? He not only stands with you He sings with you.
Jesus Comes to You. “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends." Rev 3:20 (NLT) Jesus said to the lukewarm church do you know I am at the door knocking and I want to come in and have intimate fellowship. I want to spend warm relational time with you. He doesn’t break down the door but patiently waits for you to open the door to Him.
Jesus is Preparing a Place for You. John 14:2 says, "...I am going there to prepare a place for you?” (BSB). Jesus is making arrangements for you in heaven. He is making preparations for you to be with Him forever.
Jesus is Coming Back for You. “When the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels,” 2 Thess 1:7. "When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.” John 14:3. What hope! What a promise!
Jesus has done so many things for you they are too many to list here. These I trust will encourage you this week and remind you Jesus is with you and working in you to fulfill His will which is the best possible outcome for you and your family.
