Day 8 - How Much Does He Love You? - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

Used by Permission:
Galatians 2:20 - (NIV1984)
"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

Sometimes I wonder how Peter could deny Jesus at all, much less three times.  I often ask myself how much easier faith would be if we lived in the time of Jesus, and saw him and his signs and wonders.  

If Peter only knew how much He was loved by Jesus, he never would have betrayed him, I say to myself.

It's not true though.  We have much more the Peter had, even though he had the living Jesus.  We have the entire story, and we know exactly how much Jesus loved us.  We know he died for us and we know of his Resurrection.  We know it all because we have the bible and 2000 years of witness.  Peter had none of that.

We know without any doubt that our sins have been washed clean, removed, and all the guilt that goes with knowing your are a sinner is also gone.  Clean.  Live with God Forever.  We know that.

Yet, there is even more good news.  We have been crucified with Christ.  The Price has been paid forever and for all sin in us.  With the Crucifixion comes the Resurrection, if it is with Christ. We get the Resurrection too. Just to make sure we get it, we are told that Jesus LIVES IN US ...  wow.

How would you behave if You know how much Jesus Loved You?
