As I write this, it is Easter Sunday. That’s the day Christians celebrate the conquest of the grave by our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
Have you thought that through? The almighty Creator of the universe cared so much for people, that He gave up heaven to save us.
We’re all sinners; we cannot get around that fact. We can try to hide it, ignore it, or pretend it doesn’t matter. But, in our gut, we know that we are.
But, there was one exception: Jesus never sinned. Because he was fully Man, He was tempted. But, He was also God, whose very nature is to not sin.
Being the exception means He did not have to die. But, He chose to anyway. Did you catch that? He chose to die. For us. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t really care much for Him or His rules when I was younger. But, He died for me anyhow.
We couldn’t earn our way to Him for eternity. Nope, there was nothing we could do. But, He could, and did.
To take hold of this amazing gift, again, there’s nothing we can do. All we need to do is believe. Accept that He paid my debt. Have you? if not, it’s time.
