With recent distracting events (Barcelona, Charlottesville, North Korea) many have been forced to re-focus on what life is about. Here’s my take.
I’m sure you’ve wondered and asked: What is life about?
Well, actually, it’s about God rescuing us, isn’t it?
It’s the Exodus story, right?
It’s about God delivering us from the penalty and slavery of sin.
I’m saying until God did something we were trapped in bondage without any hope of anything changing.
So God did something about our mess by sending someone like Moses—yet different from Moses—to liberate us from our messiness.
Jesus saves us from sin’s certain destruction.
Making Freedom Possible
Yesterday, Moses sprinkled lamb’s blood on the doorposts to rescue the Hebrew people from death.
Today, Jesus’ shed blood on the cross is able to rescue us from eternal death.
We no longer have to be slaves to sin because our deliverer has come.
- Jesus is the sprinkled blood on the doorpost.
- Jesus is the one to put our trust in to free us from bondage.
- Jesus rescues us from eternal death.
- Jesus replaces hopelessness with hope.
- Jesus gives life.
The life and hope of Jesus offer’ deliverance from our misery.
This is good news, right?
Exodus is real.
Salvation is here!
This is what life is about.
