Jesus: The One Who Died For Us

In the beginning God created the heavens and earth; yet, before He had created a single thing, He had already formulated a plan to save all of creation through the redemptive blood of Jesus (Ephesians 1:3-13; 1st Peter 1:17-21).

2 Corinthians 5:21 (CSB) states, He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Jesus did not want to be separated from His Father in heaven, but He knew that if He did not take on the punishment that was meant for us then we would be eternally separated from God. Jesus endured the betrayal and abandonment of His friends, a deforming beating, and the cruelty of the people He loved and came to die for. However, He still willingly walked toward a torturous death knowing that it would be incredibly painful, and He did all of this because it was all part of the plan.

Jesus’ death on the cross paved a way for a new definition of love. It was unheard of for a god to die for his people, people died for their gods. But we must remember that a plan was formed before the foundations of the world to save the world before it ever fell. That contingency plan was put in place because of God’s love for His people.

Jesus, God in the flesh, walked among His people showing them how to be righteous and holy because He loved them so much that He did not want to be eternally separated from them. He showed them how they could remain connected with Him while still on the earth.

Jesus’ resurrection implemented that His love was real. If it was unheard of for a god to die for his people, it was probably unimaginably devastating to see God killed by His own creations. However, the return of Jesus in all of His glory with all of His power instilled so much hope into His people that they knew and understood what He said was true. They knew the love that He had for them was outmatched and it was deeper than they could possibly fathom. This love that they had witnessed led them to share about Jesus, the God who took on our punishment and died for our sins.
