The Crucifixion Of Jesus; Love Made Him Die For Us.

The Crucifixion Of Jesus was the most significant execution in history. Jesus was killed for doing nothing except making the establishment angry. This happened because he told the truth and this threatened their perceived power.

The Crucifixion of Jesus was planned by God. He was sent to die for all of humanity, so we could reconnect with god. Therefore the crucifixion of Jesus, Is A Symbol Of Love. During His Life Jesus Said The Greatest Love Is A Man Who Gives His Life For Others And With His Death On The Cross. That’s Exactly What He Did.

The crucifixion of Jesus happened over 2000 years ago. He was an innocent man, who died because of love. Why was there so much anger and hatred against him? He was reviled, hated, but ultimately loved. We can learn a lot from Jesus’s last words.

When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

John 19:30

His last words came out; “it is finished.” What was finished? How could the Son of God come from heaven and allow himself to be killed?

The Crucifixion of Jesus, He Came To Give his Life For Us.

The crucifixion of Jesus was the reason he came from heaven to earth. He came to die, and be the sacrifice needed so his blood would cover our sins.

Then 3 days later he rose again, defeating death and the grave. This happened so we could be reconnected with God, and ultimately live forever with him.

This is the beauty of the cross.

The Crucifixion of Jesus, Reconnected Us To God

The crucifixion of Jesus is a bridge reconnecting God with the people he loved and created. The cross itself spans a great chasm, that our sin and disobedience created.

I know this all sounds pretty heavy, but God created us all. He made us so we could know him, and live with him. If everything that is good comes from him what would the absence of him be?

Literally, it’d be hell.

So when we sin, we’re choosing hell. It’s not God who sends us there, but us. In the Old Testament when Abraham asked who should I say sent me? God called himself I Am and 5000 years later Jesus said the same thing. It doesn’t seem like it at first, but saying I AM, is pretty profound. It saying you exist, you have existed, and in the future, you will exist.

God is the preexistent one, the present one, and the God of the future.

He just is. That’s why sin is so detrimental to a relationship with God. If everything that is good comes from him, separation from him also removes all that is good. Hell is the absence of all that is good.

John 19:30 It Is Finished; The Crucifixion Of Jesus

There are a lot of similarities between traditional Jewish law and the death of Jesus. The law states that an unblemished lamb is needed for the sins of the family and/or people. (it depends on a lot of variables/customs/time periods any extra knowledge would be amazing in this subject.) However, I do know, that the shedding of blood is needed for the remission of sins.

Jesus’ blood was needed, in Romans Paul wrote:

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—

Romans 5:12

Adam sinned and so we all have the tendency to sin, but God told Adams’s wife eve that by her seed the serpent’s head would be crushed. Fast forward 4000 years, and the, virgin Mary gives birth, her seed conquered (now and in the future) the serpent.

What Was Finished In The Crucifixion Of Jesus?

Jesus came here for a purpose. To find the lost and bring them back into a relationship with God. In John 5 he talks about knowing the father, and in the gospel of Luke, he talks about lost sheep, lost coins, and a lost son. There’s a huge pattern there.

He came to earth and fought for us, knowing full well that he’d have to die. many times the Bible says he was headed somewhere and healed someone on the way. it says he was moved with compassion. Jesus stated his mission early on in the book of John.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” 

John 10:10
John 19:30 It Is Finished; The Crucifixion Of Jesus

I think Jesus is speaking about something different than most of us would think of. The life Jesus came to give, was eternal life. His crucifixion and resurrection gave us access to God, heaven, and eternity with him.

If we surrender and give our lives to Jesus, we can live that full and amazing life that Jesus came to give us. Right now we live in the shadows. I always think of a shadow world like stranger things have or a sci-fi evil dimension.

That is essentially what we’re living in, but through the crucifixion of Jesus, we have the power to change things, and we have the authority to help others find their path.

He Didn’t Die Until The Job Was finished.

Jesus’ mission wasn’t complete, he had to die with our sins upon him. It was the only way we could be cleansed, and reconnect with God. When he said, “It is finished,” He made a statement of reconciliation. At that moment he’d won, and Jesus did all he needed to do.

I’m not saying he isn’t doing anything today. Jesus is God, and as God, he is the I am (say that out loud 10 times fast). He exists outside of time and space. When Jesus went through the crucifixion, everything that was ever done could be covered. Past, present, and future, his blood covers all. We just need to ask and surrender.

That was the sacrifice he made for you when he said, it is finished.

After The Crucifixion Of Jesus, What Is Our Part?

During the crucifixion of Jesus, he did his part, and now it’s our turn. Our goal in life should be to connect with him, receive guidance and let his spirit, presence, and words flow through us.

Many people think coming forward in church, and saying a prayer saves them. While I believe that’s a good start, you need to live your life following him.

Otherwise, what’s stopping you from turning back to a life of sin, and constantly asking for forgiveness? It’s unhealthy to live that way.

The Crucifixion Of Jesus Finished His Part, Now It’s Our Turn

With Jesus dying and rising again he did everything he came to do. Past, Present, and Future. All fell under his rule, and now we have a choice. How will we live with our choice?

  • Will we accept the life Jesus came to give us?
  • Can we love others with the acceptance Jesus gave?
  • Will you take up your cross and follow him?

Tomorrow, I gotta wake up, and when I do there’s a choice to make.
