As I reflect on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, I realize that the cross is where justice met mercy, and now every believer in Jesus Christ has been given a second chance. By choosing to do the will of his Father, Jesus paid in full the sin debt that no man could have ever paid. Without laying down his life, we would have no hope – no hope for spending eternity with our heavenly Father. When Jesus declared ‘it is finished’ he not only accomplished everything that God required by the shedding of his blood, but he also made it possible for us to live with peace and possess the power and authority to overcome our sinful nature and not live in bondage to the enemy of our soul – Satan.
No one should live without knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. No one should face death not being certain that they will spend eternity with Almighty God. If you are a believer, embrace your salvation. If you are not a believer, seek the truth. The Bible tells us that if we seek Jesus with all of our heart, we will find him. God loves each of you so much that He gave his only begotten Son to become a ransom for all. Jesus is a precious gift. Draw close to him today and as you continue to walk with the Lord, your entire life will change and you will find your purpose in life.
