Jesus Died… For You! | Self Image


You are special. How do you know? Because the truest thing about you is what God says about
you, and God says you are special. Well, how am I special? You are special because Jesus Christ died for you to forgive you. In the word of God it says, “Your sins are forgiven. He is so rich in kindness that he purchased our freedom through the blood of his son, and our sins are forgiven.” you say, well I don’t feel forgiven. Well then you’re saying that your opinion is more imortant than God’s opinon God says you are forgiven, and if you’ve trusted Him as Savior and Lord
and confessed your sins, you are forgiven. And what is the truest thing about you? What
your feelings tell you, your emotions? No, what God says about you, and He says you are forgiven. You know, you’ve probably heard this passage before. It’s out of Psalm 103 verse 12 in the Old Testament. Listen to what the word of God says. “He has removed our rebellious acts, our sins,
as far away from us as the east is from the west.” You’ve heard that before, haven’t you? Do you know what that means? Now what do you mean, he’s removed my
sins as far away as the east is from the west? Did you ever wonder why he didn’t say “I’ve removed
your sins as far away as the north is from the south”? Now why? You know, everything God says in His Word has a purpose for it, and this is why God said from east to west,
not north to south. Why? For this reason: you can measure north to south. You see, there’s a North pole and there’s a
South pole. So if you’re circumventing the earth from north to south, you can only go
north so long then you’re going south. You can only go south so long then you’re going
north. In other words, you can measure north to south. But you realize you can’t measure east to west? There
is no east pole and west pole. You start going east, you will go east for eternity. You start going
west, you will always be going west. And God said, “I’m not going to put your sins as far away
as the north is from the south, where it can be measured. I’m going to put your sins as far away as the east
is from the west, and it cannot be measured.” You say, well I really don’t feel forgiven. It doesn’t matter how you feel, because the truest
thing about you is not what your feelings say. It’s what the word of God says, and the word of God says Jesus died, to forgive you.
