Jesus Breathed His Last (Mark 15:37-39)
By Roberta Adams

Before Jesus Christ paid the price for us on the cross, there was a room called the Most Holy Place, which the high priest was only allowed to enter once a year the Day of Atonement for the sins of the people (Exodus 26:30-34, Hebrews 9:1-3). Jesus being both God and man left his place in heaven in order that we might be saved. Just before Jesus agonized in the garden of Gethsemane, the first disciples who were closest to him said they’d never disown Jesus (Mark 14:27, 31). But “then everyone deserted him and fled” (Mark 14:50 NIV). Jesus knew his children would desert him and he still died for them and forgave them. We like Peter and the others have said in different ways “I will never disown you” but the truth is we all fall short. Jesus said, “…The spirit is willing but the body is weak” (Mark 14:38b NIV). And Paul said this about his weak body, “For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Romans 7:19-25 NIV) When Jesus, our Savior, breathed his last the old system of atonement for sins (tireless sacrifices) were deemed worthless because by Jesus’ blood the curtain was “torn in two from top to bottom.” Our perfect God, our Father, with his perfect love experienced horrible pain and anguish so we who believe shall come into the Most Holy Place through our Lord Jesus Christ. I cannot begin to understand or know how Jesus must have felt to take all the sins of the world upon him. Can you begin to imagine taking all evil upon yourself? What love! Our Jesus, our God, He died for the unworthy and because of His blood, His pain, and His walk on this earth the curtain was torn in two! Hallelujah! Yes indeed, “what a wretched man I am!” but thanks be to God Jesus says, “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life” (John 5:24 NIV).


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
