An Upsurge of Generations (Part 2):
The Cross Stained Red
The blood ran down His body and onto the cross, seeping deep into the wood. The crowd roared as the Romans crucified His body. All of history built up to this one moment. Everything would change from there on out. His cry roared out above the crowd. His agony was bouncing back and forth in His body.
As Jesus hung He lifted up His head saying the greatest words ever said, “It is finished”. His head bowed and His spirit lifted. Dead. No life.
One day went by, then the next, and finally the third day came. Air propelled deep into His lungs. His lungs expanded. His heart began beating faster and faster. He has risen! He broke the chains, rolled away the tomb, shattered, and crushed, destroyed, broken the sin that lies within our hearts!
Our sin is demolished under Jesus’s feet. The stains of sin have been covered by the stain of the cross. Past, present and future sins, mistakes, and failures have been completely washed away. “It is finished”.
Nothing, nothing can separate us from love of God,
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8: 37-39
Whatever sin, failure, and mistake you have done or will make will not separate you from the love of Christ. Fix your eyes upon Christ and believe (John 14:6).
The layers of blood seeped deep in the cross, layer by layer, covered all sin, each failure, all faults, and every error. All because of the cross stained red.
