Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
Have you ever seen a rescue mission? People being rescued from a burning house? From drowning? Or car accident on the road? One thing in common in rescue operations is that there is someone who is in need of help.
We don’t hope to experience being in the situation of disaster or accidents. Do you know that it is said in the bible that we needed to be rescued? Rescued from what?
When Adam and Eve sinned, we became a curse pronounced by the law. It is because we fell short of the glory of God, we are in danger of God’s wrath and judgment.The good news is someone rescued us from God’s danger. That person is Jesus Christ.
Imagine the most impossible situation that you have been. Or maybe you are in that situation right now where in you need to be delivered and be rescued. A situation of fear, uncertainties, and darkness. A circumstance where you feel you are losing hope because it seems like no one can ever deliver you... No one cares to help you. No one cares to listen to you. No one wants to love you.
Look up, child. Jesus wants to rescue you. He wants you to come into his marvelous light out of your darkest past. He wants to love you with His everlasting love. He already absorbed the wrath. The curses of the past. He took upon your wrongdoing for your righteousness, for you to experience His blessing from curse. His faithfulness over your fear. His light over darkness.
You can be secured because you have been rescued by God. May you embrace this reality as you jumpstart your week.
