Today is the day when Christians everywhere celebrate one of our highest holy days ever: the day when we were restored to life by the rising of our Savior, who being the perfect leader He is, gave of Himself so that we might be free of our sins.
Today is the day we celebrate the glorification of the Son of Man as the unblemished sacrificial Lamb sent by God the Father, the Creator, who would take upon Himself our sins and be slaughtered and crushed by their weight, but having done so willingly will destroy their power by His rising.
Some say it is impossible for a human being to free us from our sins because up to that point all human beings had been subject to the original sin of the progenitors Adam and Eve. But this is where divine intervention came in.
If I were to burden someone with my baggage who was already burdened with his own baggage of the same kind, that person would rightfully say: You idiot! Can’t you see I’m loaded down with my own burden?!?!?! So it is that the Son of Man by his very nature would have to be specially created by God to be able to carry the burden of the sins of the people. So that means this Son of Man, this sacrificial Lamb, would have had to be originally created without sin Himself, for it would make no sense to raise up as the One who saves us from our Sins one who was created with sin himself. And because He took this burden willingly, and willingly allowed Himself to be crushed by their weight, the power of this burden was nullified, allowing Him to rise to eternal life so that the people might be restored and refreshed by the victory of the sacrifice of this unblemished Lamb of God. Because God is our perfect leader is how this came to pass.
Happy Easter everyone!
