This is the air I breathe

  

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us– Galatians 3:13

 

God is holy. God is perfect. And because God is perfect, He demands perfection of us. He reflects His perfect expectations for us in the perfect law that He has given us.

 

But we have not perfectly obeyed God’s law; and so now we are in a perfect mess. We are in the terrible predicament of being sinners who must one day give an account to a holy God for our sinful actions. What hope do we have of surviving the judgment day that God says is coming?

 

The only hope in all the world is that your sins were paid for by Christ when He died on the cross. Because if Christ died for you, then He has taken upon Himself the punishment for your sins.

 

The curse that the law demands was put upon Christ as He hung on the cross. If your sins were put upon Christ, then your penalty has been paid and you have been redeemed from the curse of the law! There is no better news than to know that those that are in Christ are now blessed because Christ has taken their curse upon Himself.

 

What is your hope? Will you stand before God on your own, or are you represented in the finished work of Christ? If you are Christ’s, then Christ has redeemed you, being made a curse for you.
