For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. ~1 Corinthians 2:2
As we commemorate and celebrate during the High Holy Days, many of us will reflect upon Golgotha and Calvary’s Cross where our Lord Jesus gave up His Life as a sin offering for all of mankind. It’s amazing that God from the beginning of creation and even before the foundation of the world, had a plan to save us from certain eternal death. God fore-knew that mankind would fall yet His great Love for the man that He would create caused Him to set in motion a plan to save His beloved creation. From the beginning of the first Bible verse in Genesis to the very last verse in Revelation… EVERYTHING POINTS TO THAT CROSS.
From the Cross, every defining moment in the believers life evolves and there is no victory that we have in this Way of Life that has not originated from the Cross.
“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.” ~2 Corinthians 2:14
Let us praise our Lord God for Jesus the Christ, Who willing and with great Love offered Himself on our behalf that we could be eternally in the presence of God. Jesus chose obediently to endure horrendous suffering and unfathomable pain not only for our Salvation and redemption but He chose to bear our punishment. There was found no Holy, Pure and Worthy sacrifice to save mankind to the place of ETERNAL redemption to God except our Lord Jesus. Apart from the Cross of Christ Jesus we ALL deserve death. The Cross is the defining point, the fork in the road and the path that we are all free to take. Yet I tell you in all truth it is the ONE and only path that leads to Eternal Salvation.
“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” ~Acts 4:12
