The Best Deal Ever

The Best Deal Ever

The Best Black Friday Deal Ever

Black Friday is the craziest shopping day in the U.S.A. But no matter how many hours people spend shopping, the best deal ever can’t be bought. Because it is free yet so precious. It was shed and given on Good Friday almost 2000 years ago. It is valid every day until the end of the world.

By dying on the cross for our sake Jesus gave us the best deal ever: we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus. By sending Jesus to die for our sins God brought us back to himself. By raising Jesus from death on the third day, God promises resurrection for everyone who believes in Jesus. 

Our firm decision is to work from this focused center: One man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the same boat. He included everyone in his death so that everyone could also be included in his life, a resurrection life, a far better life than people ever lived on their own. (2 Cor. 5:14-15, MSG)

Christians proclaims the death of Jesus, celebrates the cross of Christ because it truly is the best deal ever. That’s why we can never forget death, redemption or forgiveness of sins.

Without death there is no resurrection.
Without redemption there is no forgiveness.
Without Jesus there is no life.

Because Jesus already died for us, we will never die.
Because of Jesus we can live forever.

That’s why we don’t despair when physical death occurs. That’s why we don’t give up when  something bad happens. Because after any kind of death, there will be resurrection. All because of Jesus. That’s why Jesus is the best deal ever. That’s why we celebrate the death of Christ. It brings life and more life. It proclaims God’s love for us. It empowers us with grace and more grace.

God did not promise easy life for Jesus and he is not promising easy life for us either. But God promises and gives us so much more, the best deal ever: resurrection and eternal life with him.
