The Cross 2
Dec. 4, 2019
The Chariot Eye
|Pr. Patrick Buwemba|
John 19:30 When Jesus had tasted it, he said, "It is finished!" Then he bowed his head and released his spirit.
Jesus at the cross tasted all evil that would take us to hell and he dealt with it, once and for all. At the cross he paid our price and from hence forth we no longer be slaves unto sin but slaves of righteousness. Now we are the righteousness of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Jesus' action on the cross displayed the greatest liberation act ever, when he bought our freedom through the most disgracing death, when he said its finished, it only simply meant their is no need for any more sacrifice now.
Jesus who knew no sin did what the blood of goats and bulls could not do. Yes even today, there are people who strive to be in terms with God through their own works but its a waste of time and a sign of unbelief, if Jesus finished it.
Yes surely there is no remission of sins with out shading of blood and by the blood of Jesus, now am free. So as Christians, we ought to look unto what Jesus has done, what we would not have done to set us free. Stop condemning your self and embrace what Jesus did for you.
Thank you for the cross Lord.
