What Do You Mean
“Jesus Died For ME?!?!

“But God shows his love for us
In that while we were still sinners,

Romans 5:8

gernade If there is one phrase that many people mis-understand, or mock or think is silly or stupid, it’s “Jesus Died For You.”

Objectively, I can see their point.

How could someone - who died two thousand years ago - have anything to do with my life here and now? But actually, this is very easy to understand — and here’s why.

In war, there have been many stories of a hand grenade being tossed into a foxhole. Death was certain for all the men there, yet one selfless soul voluntarily sacrificed his life by throwing his body on that gernade and spilling out his blood to save his friends from death. The Bible says exactly the same thing about what Jesus did on the cross:

  • “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. ” - John 15:13
  • “By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us.” - 1 John 3:16
  • “You were not redeemed (i.e. saved by) with corruptible things like silver and gold…but with the precious blood of Christ.” - 1 Peter 1:18,19
  • “This is my blood…which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” - Matthew 26:38

You see, just as we honor those that shed their blood for those in ONE foxhole, Christ died for ALL by covering the destructive power of death with the only blood powerful and wide reaching enough to cover the lives of everyone that has ever lived in the entire world.

We are all fellow souls in that foxhole of impending death, and we all have the choice to receive his life to cover and save our life, or reject this act of sacrifice as 'silly or stupid.'

Friend, no one is forcing you to believe this, but the Bible says for those that do “It is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes this.“ (Romans 1:16)

Do you believe this, or is it 'Silly and Stupid?'
