JESUS PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE
MAIN TEXT: REVELATION 5: 9
And they sang a new song: ‘you are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seal, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. (NIV)
Hebrew: 2: 17
For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and a faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for sins of the people. (NIV)
Man chose to disobey God in the Garden of Eden in which he transferred his authority and dominion power to Satan thereby losing his eternal life. Consequently curse came upon man; pain, suffering and death became his passion.
God needed a being that has his likeness so as to return it back to man then God made the request in heaven, but there was no being compassionate and courageous enough to open the seal or scroll because of the weight of the price to be paid, except Jesus and God endorsed him (Heb 2: 4).
He was bruised for our iniquities; he was made poor that we might be rich. Jesus made available his blood and the Holy Spirit to help us. It was fitting that Jesus through whom everything was made was the author of reconciliation/salvation of man and said “it is finished”. This means that every ransom, punishment and pain you ought to receive for your redemption or reconciliation with God, Jesus has settled it on the cross.
Therefore, if you want to go back to your original Godlikeness then, you must acknowledge what Jesus did for you on the cross. Acknowledge that on your own, you can’t save yourself.
JESUS HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD FOR YOU, YOU CAN NOW CALL ABBA FATHER
