We are all guilty of saying that or wondering about it. Did I cause Jesus to be nailed to that cross? Is it really my sin that caused Him to go through so much anguish and pain? Am I responsible for that, really? In a word, yes!
Truthfully, if you or I were the only person that God wanted to save, Jesus would have gone to the cross for us. That is hard to understand, but from God’s point of view it is the only way to do it. The sacrifice had to be a spotless, sinless one and Jesus was the only one capable of taking care of the debt that was owed. He took care of all of the sins for everyone, past, present and future! All that is required of us is to accept it and believe it!
Our Creator did this for everyone so that it only had to be done once and never again! It is hard for us with our limited understanding to grasp this but it is the most wonderful gift we could ever receive! Christ is our Savior, there is no other. The sooner that fact is realized by more people, the better off our world will be.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
When this scripture and your life come together as one in Christ, everything is changed! Your life, what you do and say, everything takes on a different meaning and one that can impact the world! Especially today, when your words can be in so many places at once. The Word of God is so powerful and it has a message for all. Each person gets something different from the same passage which is proof that it is the Living Word of God! He loves you and wants you to come to Him because there are many blessings that will be given to you if you do. These may not be material or worldly blessings but they are His blessings.
