5 Things Jesus Has Done For Us

Out of hundreds of different examples of what Jesus has done for us, I have chosen five of my favorites. They are :
   1. Jesus Loves Us - Jesus has shown his love for us many ways throughout our life. But the most important and best way he could have shown his love for us was by stretching out his arms and dying on the cross for us!                                                                                                                                          

John 15:12 "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."
John 3:16 ~ For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
  2. Jesus Gives Us Victory - People in sports often experience victory when they beat/conquer their opposing team. Even people that do not play sports still battle sin and if they have faith in God they will overcome and have victory!
 1 John 5:4 ~ For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
   3. Jesus Supplies Our Needs - Jesus will supply our needs. Please remember the difference between a need and a want while reading this. Just have faith and God will take care of you!

Philippians 4:19 ~ And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
   4. Jesus Knows Us By Name - He knows our name and everything about us out of everyone on earth. He knows our prayers before we even speak or pray them. He is an AWESOME God!
Luke 12:7 ~ Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
John 10:3-5 ~ 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”
   5. Jesus has overcome the devil - When the devil tempts us, we can hold onto the Lord because he has defeated Satan!!  When Jesus took on Satan's area of speciality (humanity and death), he took it and then defeated it by rising from the dead and taking away our sins!

Hebrews 2:14-15 ~ Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

I hope everyone continues to have a great week and please keep tornado victims throughout the country in your prayers and thoughts. God bless!
