Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“His Life For My Life”
“And Moses took the blood, sprinkled it on the people, and said, “This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with you according to all these words.”
Life is on the menu for Breakfast this morning. “His Life For Our Life.”
The blood represents Life, “..the life is in the blood” (Lev.17:11). This Covenant between God and Israel was sealed and covered with the blood (life) of an animal. This was a symbol or type of our Covenant between Our Commander Jesus and you and I, as His Warrior. His Covenant with us was sealed and covered with His blood, His Life, Perfect and Divine - an everlasting covenant of eternal life.
In this covenant both parties must die to become one.
Israel put their sins on an animal that was without blemish, innocent of our guilt.
Our Commander ‘took our sin upon Himself’ and died the death of an innocent victim, in the place of a guilty humanity!(Heb.10:12-18)
This Covenant was EXPENSIVE! It cost our Commander His Life - and costs you and I our life as well! Listen up Warrior! When we enlisted as a Warrior in the Kingdom of God, at the Altar of Repentance - we died! We laid our life on the altar as our Commander laid His life on the Cross! Two people had to die - our Commander and You and I.
His death on the cross was once and for all, for all who surrender their messed up life to Him. Our death is continual, as a living sacrifice presented to our Commander Jesus! (Rom.12:1) We die to our self interests every day like Paul the Apostle did (1 Corin.15:31). Now, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Gal.2:20). Ooooh Rah!
