God's love really is beyond our boundary of imagination.
On reflection, for one to die on behalf of everyone else and be raised again had to be spotless Himself or i don't suppose it could have been justified, or make sense.
It is incredible to think that if you were the only human being on earth, Jesus would still have gone through the same death-the cruelty,that pain and torture for you alone.WOW.
We now have a second chance of eternal life since Jesus wiped the slate clean.If God has done this unexplainable gesture which i can't find the words to define, it means that there are also no bounderies to His patience with us-His mercy and forgiveness when we still just can't help ourselves.
That single and humble wooden cross that held our Saviour as He died, means EVERYTHING to us.It means significant and dramatic change in life, in death, in law, sin, in fact everything crucial to everything that God made.The greatest power in heaven came down on to the earth to be among us, talk, share food, , teach and reason with us in the most humble way. Shame to man, who could not recognise in his heart his saviour-the walking love of his very creator, and instead, in his ignorance, struck Him down, and sent Him to die.
The prophecy however, had now been fullfilled-Jesus had performed something that even hell could not foresee.
As it goes in all classic films and story books, good allways prevails in the end, it is destined-but not without a battle!
We can take up our crosses in confidence though, because Jesus in on our side sharing the load, and He has already won the War!
