Be dead to sin and live for what is right


Verse: 1 Peter 2:24

'He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right.'

- The death of Jesus Christ our Saviour was unlike any other death.
- His death was significant in every way.
- His dying was different because He carried our sins in the process.
- Now you and I can be dead to sin and we can live for what is right.

PRAYER: Lord, thank You for going to the cross for me. You paid the price so that I could be free. Because of You, life is worth living. Amen.


Have you read the story of the cross,
Where Jesus bled and died,
Where your debt was paid by the precious blood
That flowed from His wounded side?

Refrain

He died of a broken heart for you,
He died of a broken heart;
Oh, wondrous love! for you, for me,
He died of a broken heart.

Have you read how they placed the crown of thorns
Upon His kingly brow,
How He cried, They know not what they do;
O Father, forgive them now?

Have you read how the dying thief was saved
While hanging on the tree,
When he looked with pleading eyes and said,
O Lord, remember me?

Have you read how in anguish He cried aloud
And died on Calvary?
Have you ever said, I thank Thee, Lord,
For giving Thy life for me?

He died of a broken heart for you,
He died of a broken heart;
Oh, wondrous love! for you, for me,
He died of a broken heart.

Have a blessed Easter.

God bless.
