I’ve sent this video out as a God Gold of the Day many times but each time the truth in it is magnified even more. How can it be? Me and you, we’re Barabbas in this story, just an undeserving sinner who doesn’t deserve freedom. How can it be that Jesus loved us to the extreme of dying the death that we deserved so we could have the eternal, free gift of life from the Heavenly Father. That doesn’t make any sense right? How could somebody love us so much that they literally die for us knowing we may never accept this free gift or love Him back, but Jesus loved anyways and set the chains of Barabbas free. He set the chains of me and you free. The gospel is the most beautiful story a human heart can ever hear written by the ultimate Creator of this world and the author of our lives. I’ve written so many God Gold of the Days on here and sent messages out but no gold from God is any greater than this. I find myself overlooking the importance of the messages God decided to make a thing and not seeing it for the opportunity it truly is, a chance to share the greatest news of all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His love for us. This is the only reason I send these messages out to you to tell you that I’ve struggled and I still struggle but there is a difference in my struggle now. That difference is Jesus. For all who read this and think any of the thoughts that I too have had, “I’ve done too much bad, I don’t deserve anything good especially not Jesus.” Hey Barabbas, yeah you, Jesus doesn’t care about your past or what you’ve done, He loves you just the way you are in all your brokenness. What you’ve done doesn’t matter in the Gospel message, neither does what you do now, the only part that’s important is what Jesus has done because He’s given us the free gift of life through Him so our days of despair and hopelessness are gone. Jesus died on the cross and rose on the third day with the only reason being to tell you that it is done, it’s finished, you’re free from that former life and by accepting this free gift of eternal life with Jesus your new life begins. As Jesus rose up from the grave from death to life, receive Jesus Christ and His love into your life, accept Him as your Lord and Savior, from death He rises you up to LIFE.
I share these messages everyday because of Jesus, He brought me from death to life, hopelessness to hope, and guess what? He can do the same with you!!!
“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”/Romans 10:9
P.S.- If you want to know more about Jesus and receiving Him into your life, you can contact me on the God Gold of the Day Facebook page, the blog page under “contact”, and at (864)784-3592. Call me anytime, day or night and I’d be excited to talk to you! And if you’re reading this and you’ve already made this decision to follow Jesus, share this with somebody who hasn’t, tell them about this Good News, just get the Gospel out there!!! Don’t worry about what they may say or if they say no, we’ve been called to plant the seeds, God takes care of the growing. This news of what Jesus has done for us is too big and there’s too many lives at stake to keep it hidden.
