Before Jesus’ death, loving God felt like helplessly chasing perfection.
Kill a perfect lamb to obtain momentary forgiveness and access to God,
knowing that later, you’ll have to do it again.
A sacrifice must cover every sin.
It broke God’s heart, but it was justice.
It was necessary since He cannot be in the presence of impurity.
So He fixed it.
He loved us.
So He came to die for us.
HE became the perfect & final sacrifice.
He made us pure.
He imposed Jesus’ sweet Holiness onto us.
Then, on the third day, He gloriously rose from the dead.
Three, the Jewish number of perfection.
Three days dead.
And then He rises to conquer death.
He conquers death, and sickness, and poverty, and all of those things that are the result of a world eaten up in sin.
We cannot see the full results yet.
But we have faith…
“Take heart, for I have overcome the world.”
And He has.
On Easter, and on every day,
What is your problem?
He has overcome it.
He has overcome it all.
He has conquered the world.
And we are all conquerers through Him who loves us indescribably.
If you cannot fathom the depths of His love for you,
They are unfathomable.
If the incredible, all-powerfull, God-over-all LOVES you endlessly,
what do you have to fear?
