Easter is getting close & plans are being made in order for us to appreciate & realise its significance as we continue to worship God the maker of heaven & earth & the God of all grace. At one moment in time God became sin for us. In as much as we see a wooden structure with the saviour nailed to it suffering in agony accompanied by criminals, we also ought to appreciate a willing sacrifice…God provides, as He did on the mount of Moriah. Gen 22:1-19.
Without the Old we cannot understand the New. The Lamb of God comes to take away the sin of the world. Without the shedding of blood there can be no forgiveness of sins. God sets the terms. Heb 9:22.
In this we should appreciate great cost…life is a miracle & it is precious. To take it is a huge thing as it is to give a life to save others. It is something that we can easily lose sight of as spiritual darkness & meaningless seeks to rob us of its powerful meaning. Col 1:20.
Jonn 18:11 Jesus commanded Peter, “Put your sword away!
Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?”
