the day of our Lord

Today is Sunday, the day of our Lord, Jesus, who is the testimony of what God wants for us. I know that we knew what Jesus death and resurrection meant for you and I but would like to write about the atonement aspect of Jesus sacrifice and God’s testimony in Jesus of His will for us.
The most obvious benefits about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus is the exchange of our sin for his righteousness, the trading of our sickness and disease for his healing, our shame for his acceptance and our death for his life. But Jesus is also God’s testimony to mankind of what he wants for us. God did in Jesus what he wants for all of all of us. He set him free from death, he gave him eternal life after the resurrection, he gave him a place next to his own seat of authority in his eternal kingdom, I could go on and on; these are all things God wants for us.
God did not give us the example of Jesus for us to live up to, he gave us him as an example of what he wants to do in our lives. God knows we can’t be good enough, holy enough, righteous enough, heal ourselves, provide eternal life for ourselves so he gave us those things in Christ (Philippians 4:19). The fact that God put all of your and my sin on Jesus and Jesus died with that in himself then God set him free from death because Jesus remained faithful to God and his promises is the evidence that God wants those things for us.
Let’s take some time today to look at the resurrection and all that Jesus endured as a promise to us of what God wants for us.
The apostles, with great power gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all (Acts 4:33). Just like the apostles, we shall give our own testimony and it will be very great, may we not miss this in Jesus name. I pray that the grace and peace of God will be upon you and your family today and thereafter in Jesus name.
Good morning and have a glorious Sunday.
