The Mystery

Star

What a mystery that Jesus would willingly leave the order and peace of heaven to be born into the chaos of this peace-starved earth.

It is beyond my comprehension that Christ was willing to die under the shame of the cross so I could live in the favor of God;

That God’s only Son would choose to be separated from His “Abba” Father so I could be reconciled to Him;

 

That Jesus poured out His life

so I could be filled with His presence.

He was pierced

so I could be made whole.

He was tempted

so I could find His Way of escape.

He was accused and condemned                                                                                                                            

so I could be justified and acquitted.

He was wounded 

So I could be healed                                                                                                                   

He was broken

so I could be restored.

He was sold for 30 pieces of silver

so I could be redeemed.

He descended into darkness

so I could be raised up into the light

He went like a sheep to the slaughter

so I could follow The Good Shepherd.

He was despised and rejected

so I could be cherished and accepted.

He took underserved punishment

so I could receive unmerited favor.

He was imprisoned by death for 3 days in the pit of hell

So I could be freed to live for eternity in the glory of Heaven.

 

“Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom His favor rests.’” Luke 2:13-14
