Saturday, April 11, 2009 – Jesus is laid in the tomb – Matthew 27:57-61

The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. – 1 John 2:17

God lives forever. Jesus died on the cross for all sin. Jesus died and was laid in the tomb only to rise again to be with His Father our God. He lives the life of a perfect man only to receive the sins of all of us. Live in Him. Everyone should take example of this. No matter how hard you think your life is Jesus will provide. How much do we have to give up compared to what he gave up for us?

People today continue to sin and lose faith. Everyone will always sin no matter how hard we try not to. Everyone may want to give up because things are hard. That is the easy way out. Believing in what Jesus did for us is not always easy but it is the right way. When judgment day comes all of us who believe and keep the faith are going to have everlasting life. This is a wonderful feeling; to live your life the way Jesus wants us to.

Jesus, please help us to live our lives the way You would want al of us to live. We know the challenges will be hard but the reward will be great.
