SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/20- “It Was An Absolute Necessity—That He Had To Do It All—Just For Us!” (1 Peter 2:24)
Premise Question: Why was it an absolute necessity, that Jesus personally take upon Himself, by carrying in His physical body, all the sins of humankind?
He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
(1 Peter 2:24 NLT)
He, The King of Kings and The LORD of Lords, The Creator of Heaven and earth, while hanging on the cruel cross, personally received and took upon Himself, in His body, all of humankind’s iniquities, transgressions and vile sins. This, so that we would no longer be subject to the power that sin has over us; thereby, enabling us to completely die to the depravity of our pernicious ways and evil desires, so that, we can begin to fully realize all that He’s done for us and then, live righteously for Him. The wounds and afflictions He received in His body, now produces and provides healing and release in ours. (1Peter 2:24 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Jesus Christ personally took upon Himself, by carrying in His physical body, upon the cruel cross, all of humankind’s transgressing sin. Furthermore, He willingly took upon Himself, as a direct result of sin, their deserved death sentences, by dying for them in their place.
This was all absolutely necessary, in order to fulfill and satisfy completely, the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy Law. For without the offering up of Papa God’s only Son, the perfect sacrifice, on behalf of humankind, no amount of sacrificial offerings, work or humankind effort, on our part, will ever suffice, procure or produce a righteous life of being absolutely set free to live life victoriously, and then, ultimately, life eternal—living in the glorious light and personal presence of The King of Kings and The LORD of Lords—to forever experience the fullness of His joy and perfect peace, without end.
Something to take note of is: Papa God’s provision of His gracious favor and His merciful redemption was made on behalf of all of humankind, each and every individual, even for those who choose to reject it, by not believing and receiving His only Son as the provision of payment for their sin and death sentence; for Jesus bore their sins, as well!
He lavishly poured out His great love upon all of humankind, but each individual must choose to believe and accept personally, Papa God’s love, grace and mercy offered through His Son, our Savior Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
Let each one of us, of humankind, believe and accept personally, Papa God’s most merciful and gracious provision. Then, let us choose to die daily to self and the sinful desires of the flesh, in order to live victorious and free.
And, finally, always be ever thankful for the wonderful provision of healing, made available to us, because of the afflictions and wounds Jesus endured and took upon Himself! Blessings…
