He Paid It All; Pay Nothing!
HE PAID IT ALL; PAY NOTHING!
“Wisdom on How to Benefit from the Price Christ Paid for You”
Knowing that Jesus died for you isn’t enough. Actually, there’re lots of people who know that Jesus paid it all through His vicarious death on the cross yet they’re still struggling and suffering in this life. What is the problem with such people? What can they do to utilize and partake of all the benefits from Jesus’ sufferings and death?
The book of Exodus 12 gives us a discourse of the Children of Israel whom God was about to rescue from the hands of the Egyptians. He gave them some instructions on what they were supposed to do (as they were about to take the Passover) in order to benefit from God’s rescue mission. He said:
And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the Lord’s passover (verse 11).
Do you know what that entails?God instructed them to eat with a readiness of mind and with greater expectation because it was Him who was eager to rescue them—it was His Passover. They weren’t expected to fight their enemies; they were supposed be still and wait upon the Lord’s doing.
This is where a lot of people miss it: they feel they need to fight for them to benefit from what Christ did for them. They feel that they must combat for them to get the job, the promotion, the healing, the marriage, the business et cetera, that they are looking for.
Instead of believing and trusting what Jesus already conquered for them on the cross; such people keep on fighting. So sad!
You must understand that Christianity is more of what you see (in the Scriptures) than what you should do. In other words, the victorious Christian living is more of you seeing and believing what Jesus Christ already accomplished and conquered for you than on your efforts.
By the way, Christianity is the grace life. We believe on what Jesus already did over 2000 years ago and we walk in perpetual victory.
Christianity is the walk of faith; and through that faith we access the grace of God. (Romans 5:2).
Am I trying to stop you from working with your hands so that you entirely wait on the grace? Absolutely no! Am I trying to stop you from making investments? God forbid because faith has works—the reciprocating actions to the promptings of your faith. (James 2:17-22).
Here’s is my point: study the Scriptures and see for yourself what Christ did for you. Then faith will be infused in you. Such faith is what will give you access into His grace. The grace then will make you soar to greater heights in this life. (Romans 5:17).
