31 Jesus-Benefits: Not Just Good Intentions

“He cancelled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross” (Colossians 2:14).

We’ve thought a lot about Jesus’ life, so today’s post in this series should be no surprise. We also greatly benefit from:

The success of Jesus’ death.

Fellow-Write31Days blogger Rachel wrote a post about Jesus’ death earlier in the week. It’s just beautifully-written if you want to click over and have a read. The truth is that if Jesus had merely died, everything would be different. We’d appreciate this man who wanted to take away our sins, and to conquer the last enemy (death), but they’d be just good intentions. Thankfully, they’re more than that.

“It is true! The Lord has risen” (Luke 24:34).

    • Just editing this now because I’ve realised you’re Rachel G and the Rachel whose post I shared is Rachel D. 😉 I’ve met so many people through this Write31Days; didn’t mean to mix you up. Anyway you’re right; good intentions don’t make for salvation, but thankfully Jesus is our Saviour. 🙂

    • I don’t know whether this happens where you come from, but in some of the more traditional churches over here, on Easter Day the vicar says: “Christ is risen”, and the congregation respond with: “He is risen indeed, alleluia.” Your comment reminded me of that.

  1. I have been stuck on the song Forever by Kari Jobe this week, which talks about that moment when Jesus died and how even God the Father looked away, but in that moment death was defeated! It gives me goosebumps just to think about it!
