Jesus Christ died on Calvary because he was a matryr and his blood washed away our sins. The fact that Jesus died on the cross and three days later rose from the grave is foundational to the Christian faith. However, many today find miracles difficult to believe - especially the idea of someone dead suddenly being alive.
Jesus Christ is full of miracles. Last night I nearly passed out when he came to me. I was not slumbering. My eyes were still wide open when I heard a saintly voice in my room saying :
"My heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay"
For a minute I thought I was demented. I nearly yelled at that voice, but I couldn't because I was so horrified. I asked myself a rhetorical question; "What if tonight is my last day on Earth?". I then covered my body with one of the blankets I always wear when I slumber. Within a minute, the same voice uttered these exact words; "fear not for I am Jesus Christ of Narazeth, your Lord. I am here to lift you off all the burdens you have been carrying all the days of your life".
Funny enough, I chucked the blanket away from me after hearing that saintly voice again. When I looked around I saw a flashing light next to my wardrobe which faded in about ten seconds. I nearly passed out. Surprisingly, I found a job two days after the whole incident. Today was my first day at work as a chartered accountant.
In a nutshell, Jesus desires to set you free from your compulsions. He also desires to enable you to break free from your fears and inhibitions by learning to depend upon and draw strength from His power. It amazes me that there are people who underestimate the power of Christ and his ability to change and transform lives. Many of you would be surprised to know that some of the best Christians have no idea what Jesus can do for them.
Religion can be very different than having a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Religions are man-made and are based on trying to get to God through rules, regulations, and works. Man-made religions all are based on people’s efforts at reaching God and being made right with Him through their own efforts. He keeps His promises and covenants to bless His people and that means you! He is a God of mercy and tender compassion.
