Stamp- He Died to Save Us by StarrySky116 Stamp- He Died to Save Us by StarrySky116
So do you remember the stamp that said, "You are worth every drop that Jesus shed"?

Well, here's the remake. A couple people pointed out that we really didn't reserve what Jesus did, and that's completely true. So I thought that this stamp makes more sense.

"If you ever feel unloved. . . Just remember that Jesus loves you so much that He died to save you from the punishment that you deserve."

Fits more, doesn't it?

Be honest: how many people do you love so much that you'd die for them? It's easy to say that you will. But will you really? I don't mean to sound harsh. What I'm trying to say is that it's a big thing for someone to die for you. Especially in Jesus' case. 

See, our punishment is Hell. We're sinners. We're wicked because sin is wicked. Why wouldn't we deserve Hell? Not a single hint of sin can enter Heaven. But Jesus loves us so much, more than I can even begin to understand, that He came down to Earth from Heaven and shed His blood on the cross for us. He paid the price for our sins, a price that we could never pay even if we wanted to.

He didn't have to do that.

He didn't have to die for us. He could have stayed in Heaven and continued doing His thing.

But He did do it.

Why? Why would He do that for us? We're horrible. We wallow in our own sin.

Because He loves us.

It's as simple as that. God loves us.

Romans 8:38-39:

"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Nothing at all can separate us from the love of God. Nothing.

You are loved, even if you don't currently feel like it. Trust me, I get my moments too. We're human. It's a part of life to feel worthless and unloved at some times. But we're told to trust the Truth, not our emotions, and the truth is that God has always loved us and always will love us. 

And nothing will change that.

Favoriting it only adds it to your favorites. To put it on your profile, you have to use the thumb code. Scroll down and look at the the "details" section at the lower right of your screen. It's under the "Featured in Groups" section. There's a thumb code there. In this case, it's:

:thumb573918911:

So then you copy that and paste it to wherever you want it on your profile. As for needing permission, most owners of stamps don't really care if you use it or not. For me, I'd prefer it if you'd let me know if you're going to use it. c:

This is beautiful.  Thanks for making it.  It reminds  me of something that I heard, that kind of goes along with it.  "May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering" - Moravian slaves

In other words, we are the reward that Christ died for...so in a sense we really are worth every drop that He shed.  We don't deserve it...we deserved to die...but we are his reward, which is a priceless thing too. :aww:

Thanks for making this stamp :love:
