31 Jesus-Benefits: Not Just Good Intentions

“He cancelled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross” (Colossians 2:14).

We’ve thought a lot about Jesus’ life, so today’s post in this series should be no surprise. We also greatly benefit from:

The success of Jesus’ death.

Fellow-Write31Days blogger Rachel wrote a post about Jesus’ death earlier in the week. It’s just beautifully-written if you want to click over and have a read. The truth is that if Jesus had merely died, everything would be different. We’d appreciate this man who wanted to take away our sins, and to conquer the last enemy (death), but they’d be just good intentions. Thankfully, they’re more than that.

“It is true! The Lord has risen” (Luke 24:34).

A Shining Success

I’m going old-fashioned for a change, because I’ve read Proverbs 4 and I really like the wording in the old King James Version.

 

“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18).  That ‘Perfect day’ will be when Jesus comes back and takes us to be with Him, and His followers are becoming more and more glorious (getting brighter and brighter) until then.

 

This verse is also beautiful and true.  “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established” (Proverbs 4:26).  As we live right, we can pray for God to make us successful.  Do you see God as the Source of your success?
