In Christ alone, who took on flesh, fullness of God in helpless babe
This Gift of love and righteousness, scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied For every sin on Him was laid, here in the death of Christ I live
In three weeks there is a day called Easter. Easter is all about the verses above. Easter is about the death and resurrection of Christ. Its about a day when all the love and righteousness of God was shown to the world, was given to me, was offered to you.
Every sin that I committed yesterday and every sin I commit tomorrow, the Big Ugly ones and the ones that go unnoticed, every one was laid on Jesus. He freely died on that cross so that I could live. So that I could have hope in being reconciled to a just God. Someone needed to pay for my sin. It was my debt to pay, I scorned God, I have turned from him, I have defiled His name and brought Him shame, BUT Jesus fixed it. He bought my righteousness back from God with his own blood. Jesus did that. I did nothing. I humbly receive it and so can you.
There in the ground His body lay, light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day, up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory, sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ
Death didn’t keep Jesus, he gave his life and experienced my death and felt the wrath of God on him for my sin, and God took that sacrifice to satisfy my debt. Then God resurrected Jesus, brought him back from the dead. Death could not keep him. He burst forth and rose again and he stands in victory over death, his victory is our victory. Death and sin’s curse no longer has a grip on me.
FOR I AM HIS AND HE IS MINE….He bought me.
For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form and in Him you have been made complete. Colossians 2:9-10a
