Enough Red Kings
Enough Red Kings
As I play Solitaire on the computer, my mind wanders.
A red card covers each black card. The rules demand it.
The player can never cover one black card with another.
The player can never defeat the programming and change the alternating succession. (I've tried.)
Each game must end with a win or a loss.
Jesus' death on the cross, and the red flow of His blood, covers each of our black sins. God's plan arranged it.
The forgiven one can never be found guilty of that sin again, it is forgiven; in God's book it is gone.
The one who refuses to repent of his sins and find forgiveness before God through the sacrifice of Jesus will face his punishment; God offers no other route between mankind and Himself but through Jesus.
After death on earth, every soul will face eternity in heaven or in hell.
God's plan of salvation offers us a way to escape what we deserve. In a sense, salvation breaks the old rules, rules like "...an eye for an eye."
God's plan differs from the game of Solitaire, though. The flow of the blood of Jesus, our Red King, will never cease; no matter how many black cards of sin a man might play, the sacrifice of Jesus provides the red necessary to cover the black.
There are never too few Red Kings; there are always enough.
