You never left us!
Right from the start.
In the beginning, when we chose sin. We chose to live separate from You. We said we wanted to know everything: good and evil, even if that meant sacrificing our relationship with You. The only One able to satisfy our deepest longing. We chose something other.
Yet You loved us.
We were naked, clothed with sin and shame.
But You didn’t leave us there.
You prepared the skin of an animal to clothe us.
“Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.”
Genesis 3:21 NKJV
You reached out to us!
You continue to…
And the covering You now offer us is to be clothed with righteousness.
“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”
Isaiah 61:10 NKJV
He bore my sin and my shame on that cross.
On the third day…
He rose again.
He was and is the only One worthy to take on Himself the sins of this world. He was and is the only acceptable sacrifice. His blood– our atonement.
Christ, the only One spotless, blameless, perfect, right before God.
Your Sons life traded for my very own.
He endured the ultimate suffering for me. I will never be separated from my Father. Thank you, Jesus!
