#147 Legislative Recap & A Look at the Week Ahead Part 2 of 2

 

'Since all his “children” have flesh and blood, so Jesus became human to fully identify with us. He did this, so that he could experience death and annihilate the effects of the intimidating accuser who holds against us the power of death. By embracing death Jesus sets free those who live their entire lives in bondage to the tormenting dread of death. For it is clear that he didn’t do this for the angels, but for all the sons and daughters of Abraham. This is why he had to be a man and take hold of our humanity in every way. He made us his brothers and sisters and became our merciful and faithful King-Priest before God; as the One who removed our sins to make us one with him. He suffered and endured every test and temptation, so that he can help us every time we pass through the ordeals of life. '

 

This scripture explains that Jesus came to set us free from the accusations of the enemy about our guilt and about the fear of death. Because He died, we are not subject to the bondage that once weighed us down. Because Jesus came as a man and took our sin upon Himself and conquered death through the resurrection, we are not bound by sin any longer. We’re not bound by death any longer. We’re not dominated by the enemy and his accusations any longer. We are more than conquerors because of what Jesus did for us. We have every reason to live in freedom, in thanksgiving and in joy, because no matter what we face, He has equipped us for them and He walks with us through them all.
