THOUGHT FOR TODAY - What Did Jesus FREE You From?

Thought for Today –

What were you LOOSED from?

Sin entered the world after Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil – which God warned them what would happen if they did. They willingly disobeyed and all of us have been held in bondage to sina.
THAT IS - until Jesus went to the Cross! He paid the price for all of our sin, died, was buried, went to hell, got back the keys of death and hell, and rose again from the dead.
Death and hell could NOT HOLD JESUS! Jesus LOOSED the PAINS of DEATH and HELL! He freed us from all the consequences of sin! He freed us from the curse of the law – becoming that curse for us!
Galatians 3:13-14 NKJV
13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed [is] everyone who hangs on a tree")
14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the
promise of the Spirit through faith.

What did that mean for…

Thought of the Day - What did the RESURRECTION accomplish for YOU? Part 2

Thought for Today:  RESURRECTION Part 2 –

What did it accomplish for you?

What did Jesus accomplish through His death, burial
and resurrection?

1. He paid the penalty for our sin - death and hell could not hold Him – because He was sinless – He gave us His righteousness (right standing with God – if we are in Him).

2. He got the keys of hell and death back from the devil – so death and hell cannot hold us any longer – if we are in Christ. 

3. Because He was resurrected – we can be resurrected! Our bodies will one day be reunited with our spirit – if we are in Christ - and we’ll have a new resurrected body!

4. Because Jesus was resurrected – we can receive the PROMISE of the Father – which is the Holy Spirit. The Lord will fill those who are in Christ with His Spirit and power! Why? Because we are HIS BODY on the earth and He wants us to be effective and powerful for Him so others will see and want Jesus too!

Rev 1:18 NKJV

"I [am] He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forever…



Martha was asked the questions “Do you believe?"
Jesus finally arrives and Martha’s thinking: “You’re late! – my brother’s been in the tomb for 4 days and he stinks by now!!” Jesus, in His love reveals Himself in the midst of her crisis that "HE is the RESURRECTION and the LIFE!" He’s the answer!
John 11:20-26 NKJV
20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him, but Mary was sitting in the house.
21 Now Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.
22 "But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You."
23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."
24 Martha said to Him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
26 "And whoever lives and believes in Me…
