The Final Infusion: Christ In Us

Jesus steps on the scene like an older brother you look up to and want to be like.

He does life as fully man and fully God and teaches us to steward the Holy Spirit that will again be trusted to us. Relationship and access to The Presence will soon be ours. But there is a real price to pay for sin, you can’t just sweep it under a rug. Evil has its consequences and before death could be replaced with eternal life there had to be an exchange. A life…for a life…for my life and yours. God, through Jesus, pulled into Himself all of the sin of the world. If anyone else had done so, say you or me, the death would have been justified. The punishment would have fit the crime. Eternal life was a bloody business that only God had the capacity to orchestrate and ultimately do. When Jesus says, “It is finished,” that’s His way of saying put your money away and accept this from Me – us trying to earn this shows how little we understand the value.

The keys of death are snatched from the enemy and the Righteous One gives you the keys of life and leaves you with this, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you….Receive the Holy Spirit.”

So stop striving for eternal life…work from a place of restful receipt and unwrap what's already been given.
