God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that.
The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us. (Romans 8:3-4 The Message)
Unable to fix our
Never ending problems,
God, the Father
Down with death, Jesus lives!
Imagine if, we could buy some magic glue to mend our broken hearts. But no, it takes blood. A body and a cross drenched with blood heal our dead-end attempts at life. That’s it! That’s enough!
