Why did Jesus? penalty for sin need to include physical and emotional pain - why not just spiritual separation from God?
He was both human and Divine. He was born brought up and had the same emotions as a normal human being. Had he not been a human being it would have been difficult for the simple men to understand the Good News that he preached. Specially, his desicples who were just ordinary men. The parables also contained things that were related to us. Had he been only Divinical, which he could have opted easily, then we would have never related ourselves with His sufferings, pain and agony. We could have said that He has the supernatural powers to bear the pain. Thank you JESUS.
The death of Jesus gave us life and that too life eternal. What a gift that we have received without any price. Priceless and easily available to all those who seek and ask for it. People struggle here and there for peace, money and status but God gives us all these FREE. We donot know the price of all these that is the reason we lack in faith. Just beleive and ask and it shall be given. Thank u Jesus Thank you Father and Thank u Holy spirit.
How does Jesus link intimacy to him with obedience to him? a New commandment?
We can be close to anybody if we have the perfect tuning with him. Tuning means knowing, observing, following, copying and telling others about him. If we are able to do all these things which Jesus did then we are sure that we are on the right track because we know that Jesus never Fails.
It is quite obvious that unless and until we invite nobody is going to come to our house. So is the case with Jesus, we have to invite then only will he step into our lives. He is the one who is waiting anxiously for us to invite Him. Once we confess our sins and invite Jesus for the strength and protection to walk an upright path, he will surely help us and guide us. He is the once who secrificed his life on the cross for us. He is the one who consoles, protects and uplifts us when we are down trodden. He is our protector, master and friend. We should make it sure that what ever we do should be for the glorification of the Almighty.
One of the greatest commandment that Jesus gave us was To love one another. What is lacking in our lifes today is Love, Peace and Harmony. If we love everybody as we love ourselves then there will be peace and harmony and all the corruption will be removed from the face of this earth. The work of the satan is easier when there is jealousy, war and disharmony amongst all men on earth. Keep loving one another and all the problems will be solved.
The Son of God came into this world to save all sinners. His parables and teachings were all concerning Admitting, Repentance and ask for Forgiveness of sins. We all are born sinners and that is why we sin. By the death of Christ on the Cross all of us were set free from he bondage of sins. His resurrection was victory over sin, satan and death. It is high time we submit ourselves to the will of God. Admit and ask forgivenesss and walk on he path which Jesus has paved for us to be heir of he Eternal Life and HIS Kingdom. Ask and u shall be given, Knock and it will open are the words to Jesus and we do not invite Him to come into our hearts he will keep on knocking.
The second greatest work that Jesus did on this earth was Spreading the Good News, first being shedding his blood and giving his life for our sins. He proclaimed the Good news to all the people in the last 3 1/2 yrs of his life on this earth. Whenever, wherever, whoever he met he passed the good tidings to him. The first of the three steps was to Accept your sins, repent and lead a righteous life and proclaim the same steps to your fellow men. This was the great commission that Jesus left us with. We all sin because we are born sinners. The link between God the father and men was reconciled by the death of Jesus on the Cross. What a great sacrifice? Come let us also admit all our sins, repent for it and in future lead an upright and righteous life so that people around us may change their lifes too.
