The Gospel, The Good News 18 of 41

God’s work on My Behalf

Jesus, God the Son, God incarnate, loved me so much that He willingly laid down His life for me. No one could love me more, or better than Jesus.

John 15:12-14

This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

God’s work on My Behalf

God loved me so much that He was willing to not only suffer the loss of His son, but to allow His son to suffer the loss of Him while He hung on the cross and died. God, in this moment on the cross for the first time in all of eternity past, present, and future, turned his back to His son and could not look on Him for His son took the sin of mankind on himself and paid for it with His shed blood. A holy God could not look on sin, and turned His back on His own son for My sake.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Mark 15:34

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

God's Work on MY Behalf

Because of my sin against God and my helpless state that I am in, I can do nothing, and I am worthy of nothing. But God did it all by sending His Own Son into the world to die on the cross for my sins showing me unfathomable love. 

Romans 5:6
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Romans 8:3
For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,

Romans 5:7-8

 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
