Thought of the Day September 3, 2020 Mystery: Salvation

By 9:56 AM

 

That we have been redeemed, reconciled and saved from the eternal consequences of our sins is a mystery revealed to us by God. How else would we know that the death of the Son of Man by crucifixion was to this end? Imperfect as we are, we could not save ourselves by any human sacrifice, even if we gave up our lives. Only the sacrifice of a perfect person, God become Man, could become our justification.

 

Jesus, though sinless, took upon himself the sins of the world, so that through his death of expiation, he might nail them to the cross. He paid the price in full. His death for our salvation; his suffering for our freedom! What pleased the Father was not the death oh his beloved Son. Rather, it was the choice of Jesus to do the will of the Father out of filial love, even it meant giving his life so we could have eternal life.

 

So what should our response be for such a great gift?  “Stand firm, and do not be willing to be again held by the yoke of servitude. (Galatians 5:1)
