Seven Good Reasons To Praise Jesus as Lord

"Seven Good Reasons to Praise Jesus as Lord"

1. Because of Jesus, I am forgiven.
" Whom God set forth as a propitation by His blood,
through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness,
because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins
that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the
present time His righteousness, that He might be just
and the just and the justifier of the one who has faith
in Jesus."~Romans 3:25-26~

2. Because of Jesus, I have peace with God.
" Therefore, having been justified by faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."~Romans 5:1~

3. Because of Jesus, I don't have to live with guilt or condemnation.
"There is therefore now no
condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who
do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit."~Romans 8:1~

4. Because of Jesus, I have a great inheritance.
"If children, then heirs-heirs of God & joint heirs
with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we
may also be glorified together."~Romans 8:17~

5. Because of Jesus, I always have someone
interceding for me.
"Who is he who condemns?
It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen,
who is even at the right hand of God, who also
makes intercession for us."~Romans 8:34~

6. Because of Jesus, I have eternal life with Him.
"If Christ is in you, the body is dead because
of sin, but the Spirit is life because of
righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in
you, He who raised Christ from the
dead will also give life to your mortal
bodies through His Spirit who
dwells in you."~Romans 8:10-11~

7. Be cause of Jesus, I can have more life
in this life.
"The thief does not come except to steal,
and to kill, and to destroy. I have
come that they may have life,
and that they may have it more abundantly."
~John 10:10~
