“He Himself bore our sins” in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by His wounds you have been healed.” I Peter 2:24 New International Version
Shalom! There is a well known saying that says, “If you want something done right, then do it yourself.” Today let’s get a real in-depth understanding of the difference between doing something yourself and sending someone to do it. But we are not going to talk about you, we are going to talk about God the Father and Jesus. Do you realize the difference between The Father sending an angel to die, save and redeem you versus sending Jesus? Because of His Love, The Father did not leave so precious and important a task to an angel. He sent His own Son, and thereby in essence He sent HIMSELF.
Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 2 Corinthian 5:18-19 New American Standard Version
So you can see by this scripture that it was really God the Father ‘Himself’ in Christ who was reconciling or bringing people back into right standing or righteousness with Himself all because He desired this and planned this in and out of Love. This is pure GRACE given to men, unmerited, undeserved. This is a stark contrast to the law or the ten commandments which was given by Moses. God gave Moses the ten commandments and then Moses gave the commandments to the children of Israel, not the world.
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17 New International Version
Moses was the servant of God. Jesus is the Son of God as are you. Moses gave the children of Israel, not the world, the law. God so loved the world that He gave them His Son. Moses gave the law. Jesus gave HIMSELF!!! Moses taught them the law. Jesus taught them about HIMSELF.
Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning HIMSELF. Luke 24:27 New Living Translation
When you understand how truly personal your salvation, your protection, your provision, your life, your health and your well being is to God the Father and Jesus, you will then understand the importance of why He did these things HIMSELF. He did not trust it or leave it to anyone else. When it came to Him making sure that you are righteous He did it HIMSELF to make sure it was done RIGHT. Meditate on that.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
