Praise God, He is risen!

Praise God, He is risen!

I've been reading the book of Leviticus this week, through my personal devotions, and reading about the types of offerings the people were commanded to give. In Leviticus 13, it speaks of the process that they were to follow if someone had leprosy, and it really spoke to me.

This was not a book I have ever read or thought interesting. But GOD brings you to the most amazing passages of scripture at the right time.

It was verse 46 in particular, that I saw Christ so present.

When someone was unclean like this, they were cast out until they were deemed clean again by the Priest. But we have a greater High Priest who can cleanse us eternally from the worse disease of all, and one that plagues us until we come to him for cleansing - sin. If we don't repent, on that day when we stand before Him, He will cast us out but this will be forever.

Even though we will always have sin within us, it no longer reigns our lives. Once we are dead to self, we are alive in Christ.

This really spoke to my own heart coming up to Easter weekend.

Knowing what Christ endured at the garden of Gethsemane, asking His Heavenly Father to remove the cup of wrath IF it was His will. Then seeing one of His disciples, Judas, betray Him. (Matthew 26:36-46)

Knowing what Christ endured at his 'hearing' with Pilate, from reading in the lies that were spoken, the mockery that took place. (Luke 23:1-24)

Knowing what Christ endured on the cross, not just the physical pain of the thorns on his head digging in; or the nails being hammered into his hands and feet; or when the nails were the only thing holding up His bodyweight. The pain must have been excruciating. BUT the weight of the sin of all mankind… that was incomprehensible. For Him to bare, and for us to understand. (Mark 15:15-37)


Knowing what God’s plan was before the beginning of time, and that Christ would be delivered BACK INTO glory, but with a promise that, even though “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”, Christ took our place on the cross, at Golgotha, “that whosoever believeth in Him, shall not perish but have everlasting life”.

Praise God, He is risen!
