Death to Life!

We have spoken of Jesus trials and His will to pay our sin debt. It all started at the beginning when Adam chose to believe satan rather than God. It was high treason requiring a death sentence. Satan laughed at his conquest thinking it totally ruined God’s plan of having human beings to spend eternity with Him. 





However, God is God, and He had a plan to counter satan’s attack. A man committed a treasonous act against a deity; the penalty must be paid by a God-man. So Jesus, Son of God, chose to give up His divinity and come to earth as a fully human being. 





Jesus lived and taught us about the loving nature of the Father, and about His will. When Jesus came to the cross at the end of His earthly life, it was the culmination of His life purpose. Why so willingly? [Quote from BSF study on John 18] It was the whole purpose of His earthly life. Jesus came to earth to bind His loved ones to Himself and to His Father with cords of love. It cost Him His life, untold sufferings and humiliation to deliver His people [that’s us] from the power of evil and give them/us eternal life.

We celebrate His death and Resurrection on Easter. Hanging on the cross, Jesus last words were, “It is finished”, and all the prophesies had been fulfilled.  Then He bowed His head and died. 

Romans 3:21-24 (MSG)
. . .The God-setting-things-right that we read about has become Jesus-setting-things-right for us. And not only for us, but for everyone who believes in him. For there is no difference between us and them in this. Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them) and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, 

God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with himself. A pure gift. He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ.

Jesus had preached that He would rise again in three days. The rulers were afraid Jesus friends would attempt to steal His body and say He rose; so they stationed guards at the tomb. But despite their unbelieving actions, on the third day, Jesus did rise from the dead!! 


Hallelujah! . . .  . . . HE IS RISEN!. . . . . . . .Hallelujah




It is the final proof of His divinity. His last days including it’s ending scene were planned and carried out at God's direction. What joy filled the hearts of His disciples and friends! 

He is risen!

Joy fills our hearts too, because now we are free! Jesus, the Son of God, freed us from our bondage to evil. We are able to choose a life lived according to God’s Love, and we know that is the best. He loves us so much, that we can entrust ourselves completely to Him.
It is such a good life with Jesus who now can live in us! Settle on Jesus, alive forevermore and live with Him alive in you and me! Alleluia!
