Your personal Hero – Experiencing LIFE Today – June 29, 2020

Christ is the Son of God. He died to atone for men’s sin, and after three days rose again. This is the most important fact in the universe. I die believing in Christ. — Watchman Nee (note found under his pillow, in prison, at his death)

War stories are filled with heroes—men and women who put themselves on the line for the good of others, sometimes using their own bodies to protect someone else. That’s what Jesus did for you.

When coming to our rescue in the depths of humanity’s greatest crisis, Jesus “took the hit” for us. Separated from God by sin, He paid the ultimate price to purchase a restored intimacy with the Father.

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

When Jesus was hanging on the cross—perfect and sinless—at a certain moment in time, God poured the sins of every single person who ever lived—past, present, future—into Christ. Not only did He receive all of our sins, but God’s wrath, because of those sins, was poured out on Christ, too. So, we can understand why Jesus, hanging there, said,

“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). (Matthew 27:46)

In that moment, Jesus experienced the consequences of sin for all humanity. The separation caused by our sin—by your sin—came between Jesus and the Father. Your personal Hero intervened. He took your sins to the cross, and He received the wrath that you deserved. Thus, you don’t have to carry your sin anymore, and you have escaped the wrath that you deserve.

Jesus, I only ask today that You would somehow take the cross and all You accomplished there and make it real in my heart and in my mind. It makes sense in theory. Help me to envision it as true so that I experience it as my reality. Amen.

  1. Bless you. He did not die on account of your sins, you do that for yourself in your own judgement’
    The sacrifice was His own way of avoiding a calamity about to descend on the Earth, and was orchestrated to occur at the precise date with the assistance of Judas.
