People die every day. It’s tragic. But it’s reality.
Why do people care so much about the death of a Jewish rabbi some 2,000 years ago? If death is common, what makes his so special?
He died for you. Even if you’ve never met him, he knows you. As God, he saw your face. He saw the danger this world’s moral messed up-ness meant for your soul. And it made him sad.
But he loves you. Enough to take the punishment in your place. So you can be okay forever. So, even though you die, you can actually live forever. So you can know his love and be in his glorious presence in a place called heaven.
What does it matter that a man named Jesus died on a cross outside of Jerusalem?
“He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification” (Romans 4:25).
