For many people, life has significant value, and many of us will not die for the salvation of others. However, there is a man who died for the salvation of all humanity. Jesus is the GOD-MAN who died and resurrected for every human being. “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” (Matthew 28:6 NIV).When I first heard of this man who encountered an awful death for the salvation of my soul, my human mind could not conceive such love. I did not understand how anybody would take place on a cross and be crucified for the forgiveness of my sins. But a thought popped in my mind that said: ” only with the power of God or God himself.” We are incapable of carrying all the sins of every human, every disease, and every pain. Only God Yahweh can send His only Son Jesus to pay for our debt. Again, no man on earth would take place on a cross for the salvation of all humans. Only God Himself can take this load. I started to think more about His immense and unfailing for love for us. Although we are unfaithful, God’s love does not give up, and it does not separate from us; it is unconditional. God’s love is so great for us that he came to this earth to die for us and give us freedom through His Son Jesus. For instance, do you see what is going on in this world? Can you notice that we have so much hate, anger, poverty, unbelief, murder, war, and other evil things that occupy our society? We need salvation, and that salvation comes through Jesus and accepting Him as our God and savior. Salvation will not come from our governments; it will not come from technological advancements or any other thing created on this earth. Salvation, joy, and peace come from the Lord of heavens, The God of Israel, Jesus! “While we wait for the blessed hope the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.” (Titus 2:13-14 NIV).
We live in a fallen world, and we will have difficulties, but do not give up! Believe in His promises. Even though we have afflictions, we pass through the fire without being burned. Jesus holds us, and our job is to worship and believe in Him, pursue His presence through prayer to encounter His incredible peace and joy in the middle of life’s issues. “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25 NIV).
I hope you have found joy and refreshment in these words. I pray that you encounter God’s salvation and peace in your life, in Jesus’ name, Amen!
