Recently we went to our grandson’s birthday bowling party. The youngest grandson would walk to the kiddie ramp, thrust his ball down and watch for it to knock over a few pins. Then he would turn around, dust his hands off and triumphantly proclaim to his parents, I did it!
I chuckled to myself. I couldn’t help but think of Jesus when He arose from the grave, having conquered sin, hell, and death, and returned to His Father in heaven. There He was…..the Son of God and the Son of man. Was there just a small portion of His humanness that wanted to dust His hands and triumphantly proclaim to His Father, ‘I did it!’ ?
Jesus Christ did indeed “do it”! He earned the right to be our Savior.
Revelation is the name of the last book of the Bible, and the name Revelation means “the revealing of Jesus Christ”! It is not the end but the beginning of eternity with our triumphant Savior Jesus Christ! Read it for yourself. It’s an amazing book. 🙂
Acts chapter 4, verses 10 -12, read: “10-let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.
11-This is the stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.
12-Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name given among men by which we must be saved.” (NKJV)
Even after all the amazing miracles and ways that God provided for the Israelites, they murmured against the Lord. They still had to be told over and over again: Fear not! Stand still! See the salvation of the Lord!
What was their salvation? The same as it is today – the Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace! Praise His Name!
