Why Did Jesus Died for Me, people who are not religious family not understand what it means. This question is what people keep on asking day to day but some have not been cleared with the answer and some are disturbed.
Answer: God created Adam and Eve according to Genesis 5:1 to occupy Garden of Eden where He has good plan for mankind that they may live, praise and enjoy but the lost it.
How Do They Lose It?
The bible recorded that through Eve the devil deceived mankind into sin. The bible said in the book of Romans 3:23 New International Version (NIV) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, that leads to the separation of mankind from the God.
What was God’s Plan Over the Sin of Man?
God had good plan for the man to come back to Him that is why God send, His begotten Son Jesus to come to world to die for us that who so ever believed in Him shall be saved John 3:16.
The mankind should be grateful for God sending His Son Jesus concern us, but some don’t embrace His coming rather being embarrassed because they don’t understand what I am talking about.
What Should You Understand? The Reason Why Jesus Die For You
7 Reasons why Christ Suffered and Died for You and I
You should understand and believe the reason why He died for us and His coming is to save mankind from sin. In your heart you should have a hunger for God, because He loved us so much. I pray you won’t reject that hunger. Jesus said, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled” (Matthew 5:6).
7. To achieve His own resurrection from the dead
But what did I mean by resurrection; the death of Christ did not merely precede His resurrection – but it was the price that obtained it for us to resurrect with Him on the last day.
In book of John 11:25, the Lord Jesus says explicitly, “I am the resurrection.” God is the resurrection. Even in the Old Testament, God is already the resurrection.
6. To show His own love for us.
The death of Christ is not only the demonstration of God’s love (John 3:16), but it is also the supreme expression of Christ’s own love for all who receive it as their treasure. The sufferings and death of Christ have to do with your personally understanding. It is my sin that cuts and separates me from God, not sin in general.
I am lost and was perishing; all I can do is pleading for grace and mercy of God through faith. Then I see Christ suffering and dying. For me and you? Ephesians 5:25 says, “Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” And John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends.” And Matthew 20:28, “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” And I ask, Am I among the “many”? Can I be one of His “friends”? May I belong to the “church”? And I hear the answer, “To all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12). My heart is swayed, and I embrace the beauty and bounty of Christ as my treasure. And there flows into my heart this great reality–the love of Christ for me.
5. In order to cancel the legal demands of the law against us.
What a foolishness to think that our good deeds may one day outweigh our bad deeds.
First, it is not true. Even our good deeds are faulty, because we don’t honor God in the way we do them. The lord says our righteousness is just like filthy rage. “Whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.” Without Christ-exalting faith, our deeds will signify nothing but rebellion.
Second, this is simply not the way God saves us. If we are saved from the consequences of our bad deeds, it will not be because they weighed less than our good deeds. There is no salvation by balancing records. There is only salvation by canceling records. The record of our bad deeds (including our defective good deeds), along with the just penalties that each deserves, must be blotted out–not balanced. This is what Christ suffered and died to accomplish (Colossians 2:13). He endured my damnation. He is my only hope. And faith in Him is my only way to God. Jesus said He is the way, truth and life no one cometh to my father except through me.
4. To provide the basis for our justification and to complete the obedience that becomes our righteousness
To be vindicated or justified in a courtroom is not the same as being forgiven from sin. Being forgiven implies that I am guilty and my crime is not counted. Being vindicated or justified implies that I have been tried and found innocent. The verdict of justification or vindication does not make a person just. It declares a person just. But it is through faith in Christ Jesus that makes man Just. (The moral change we undergo when we trust Christ is not justification. The Bible usually calls that sanctification–the process of becoming good.) Justification is a declaration that happens in a moment. A verdict: Just! Righteous! In the courtroom of God, we have not kept the law. Therefore, justification, in ordinary terms, is hopeless. Yet, amazingly, because of Christ, the Bible says God “justifies the ungodly” who trust in His grace; however, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness (Romans 4:5) NIV. Christ shed His blood to cancel the guilt of our crime and cleans them:
How much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him
“We have now been justified by his blood” (Romans 5:9) NIV; But canceling our sins is not the same as declaring us righteous. Christ also imputes His righteousness to all man. The claim before God is this: “not having a righteousness that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ” (Philippians 3:9). Christ fulfilled all righteousness perfectly; and then that righteousness was reckoned to be to all man, when I trusted in Him. Christ’s death became the basis for our pardon our perfection because our righteousness is of Him says the Lord Isaiah 54:17(KJV).
3. To obtain for us all things that are good for us
“He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for a ransom for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32). What is the logic about the verse? The logic about this verse is that He God can do all things for us for not sparing His son Jesus because of His Love Romans 8:32. If God did the hardest thing of all–namely, give up His own Son to suffering and death–then it is certain that He will do the comparatively easy thing, namely, give us all things with Him. God’s total commitment to give us all things is surer than the sacrifice of His Son.
What does “give us all things” mean?
He will give us all things that are good for us. All things that we really need in order to be conformed to the image of His Son (Romans 8:29) KJV. All things we need in order to attain everlasting joy. “In any and every circumstance, I have learned the 4 secret things of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:12-13) KJV. Notice “all things” includes “hungering” and “needing.” God will meet every real need, including the ability to rejoice in suffering when many felt needs do not get met. The suffering and death of Christ guarantee that God will give us all things that we need to do His will and to give Him glory and to attain everlasting joy.
2. To bring us to God
What is the ultimate good in the Good News? Isaiah 61:1 (KJV) God Himself anointed man to preach good tidings unto the mankind.
5 Major Point Of Good News
- Salvation is not good news if it only saves from hell and not for God.
- Forgiveness is not good news if it only gives relief from guilt and doesn’t open the way to God.
- Justification is not good news if it only makes us legally acceptable to God but doesn’t bring fellowship with God.
- Redemption is not good news if it only liberates us from bondage but doesn’t bring us to God.
- Adoption is not good news if it only puts us in the Father’s family but not in His arms.
There is no sure evidence that we have a new heart just because we want to escape hell. It doesn’t take a new heart to want the psychological relief of forgiveness, or the removal of God’s wrath, or the inheritance of God’s world. The evidence we have been changed is that we want these things because they bring us to the enjoyment of God. This is the greatest thing Christ died for. “Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18). We were made to experience full and lasting happiness from seeing and savoring the glory of God.
1. To give us eternal life.
In our happiest times we do not want to die. The wish for death rises only when our suffering seems unbearable. What we really want in those times is not death, but relief.
We would love for the good times to come again. We would like the pain to go away. We would like to have our loved one back from the grave. The longing of the human heart is to live and to be happy. God made us that way. “He has put eternity into man’s heart” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
We are created in God’s image, and God loves life and lives forever. We were made to live forever. And we will. The opposite of eternal life is not annihilation. It is hell. Jesus spoke of it more than anybody, and He made plain that rejecting the eternal life He offered would result not in obliteration, but in the misery of God’s wrath: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him” (John 3:36). And it remains forever.
Jesus said, “These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life” (Matthew 25:46). All that is good–all that will bring true and lasting happiness–will be preserved and purified and intensified. We will be changed so that we are capable of dimensions of happiness that were inconceivable to us in this life. “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined … God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). For this Christ suffered and died. Why would we not embrace Him as our treasure, and live?
What does it mean that Jesus died for you?
Let me summarize it this in 2 ways. First, it means that we are by nature separated from God. God created us, and He wants to be our friend—but we have ignored Him and gone our own way (which is what the Bible calls “sin”). As a result, we are separated from God.
Secondly, God doesn’t want us to be separated from Him! He loves us, and He wants to forgive us and cleanse us and restore us—and that’s why Jesus Christ came into the world. He was God in human flesh, and He came for one reason: to bring us back to God. He did this by becoming the final sacrifice for our sins through His death on the cross. Yes, Jesus died for us!
Finally, we must respond to what God has done for us. We must believe Christ died and rose again, and we must commit our lives to Him as our Savior and Lord. And that’s what I urge you to do today. God’s promise is for you: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31).
