we can be saved
Finally, they located one person who had had measles and had overcome, defeating the sickness. They withdrew some of his blood, let the cells settle out and injected the convalescent serum into the veins of the little girl. As a result, she was healed, saved from death. She overcame measles not by her own strength or resistance, but by the blood of the one who had defeated the sickness in their own body.
Jesus, the second person in the Holy Trinity, came down to earth to sacrifice His life on the cross and shed His holy blood, not as a way to appease an angry, vengeful God, but to become one of us, going through temptations, pain, suffering, brokenness and death in His sinless body so that His holy blood would be the saving “serum” for the sin of the world (see John 1:29; Hebrews 2:10, 2:18, 4:15, 12:2).
What an amazing gift we have been given. We have been saved, not just from the devil, sin and hell, but for something positive and wholesome—to be in communion and union with the Living God.
During this Holy Week, let us take the time to think on these things and all that Christ has done. Let’s reflect on God’s great love for us. It is because of this that we have hope.
