For God So Loved The World

An Easter Greeting
For God So Loved The World

For God so loved the world
A world condemned and lost
That He gave His only Son
To die upon a cross;
His one and only spotless Son
Who had no sin in Him,
Who bore the sins of every soul
And was condemned for them;
He suffered sickness, grief, and shame,
Wretchedness, unending pain,
Betrayal, persecution, death,
The curse of hell in the end…
He took upon Himself the curse
God’s righteous Law said we deserved
Because all souls from Adam’s race
Are born in sin and must be saved.
Adam is a word that stands
For each and every soul of man
Women, children it includes,
~Adam sinned for me and you.
Though we were never born as yet
His sin affected all his race.

When Jesus died upon the cross
He bore the sins of all the lost,
That all who might believe in Him
By faith be made righteous within.
Adam disobeyed God’s Law
And all in Him became sinners…
Jesus Christ obeyed God’s will
To take upon Himself man’s sin…
And all who will believe in Christ
Who in His cross choose to abide
Have their sins by Him removed
In Christ by faith they are made pure
For Christ, their Adam, God obeyed
And by His act many souls saved
Through faith in Him and by God’s grace.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURES FOR MEDITATION

God gave Jesus as a way to forgive people’s sins
through their faith in Him.
God can forgive them
because the blood sacrifice of Jesus
pays for their sins
.

God gave Jesus to show that
He always does what is right and fair.
He was right in the past
when He was patient
and did not punish people for their sins.

And in our own time He still does what is right.
God worked all this out in a way
that allows Him to judge people fairly
and still make right any person
who has faith in Jesus.

God makes people right
through their faith in Jesus Christ.

He does this for all
who believe in Christ.
Everyone is the same.

All have sinned
and are not good enough
to share God’s divine greatness.
They are made right
with God by His grace.
This is a free gift.

They are made right with God
by being made free from sin
through Jesus Christ.”
Romans 3:22-26 ERV
(Easy to Read Version)

“When Adam sinned,
sin entered the world.

Adam’s sin brought death,
so death spread to everyone,
for everyone sinned.

Yes, people sinned
even before the law was given.
But it was not counted as sin
because there was not yet
any law to break.

Still, everyone died—
from the time of Adam
to the time of Moses—
even those who did not disobey
an explicit commandment of God,
as Adam did.

Now Adam is a symbol,
a representation of Christ,
who was yet to come.

But there is a great difference
between Adam’s sin
and God’s gracious gift
.

For the sin of this one man, Adam,
brought death to many.

But even greater
is God’s wonderful grace
and his gift of forgiveness to many
through this other man, Jesus Christ.

And the result of God’s gracious gift
is very different from the result
of that one man’s sin.

For Adam’s sin
led to condemnation,
but God’s free gift leads to our
being made right with God,
even though we are
guilty of many sins.

For the sin of
this one man, Adam,
caused death to rule
over many.

But even greater
is God’s wonderful grace
and his gift of righteousness,
for all who receive it
will live in triumph
over sin and death
through this one man,
Jesus Christ.

Yes, Adam’s one sin
brings condemnation for everyone,
but Christ’s one act of righteousness
brings a right relationship with God
and new life for everyone.

Because one person disobeyed God,
many became sinners.

But because one other person
obeyed God,
many will be made righteous.

God’s law was given so that all people
could see how sinful they were.
But as people sinned more and more,
God’s wonderful grace
became more abundant.

So just as sin ruled over all people
and brought them to death,
now God’s wonderful grace
rules instead,
giving us right standing
with God and resulting in eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
