For the one who seeks, searches and yearns to get to know the Savior, there is one moment in time unlike any other.
This flash of revelation makes sense of everything.
The why, what, who, when and where of life is answered in an instant.
It is a “coming together” of the spirit, soul and mind centered on Jesus.
Questioning how a person can be the solution to every problem that has ever existed seems impossible, but it is what it is.
In the blink of an eye God will reveal truth; pure, unadulterated truth in the form of his son. Genuine life given to all mankind out of the simple love of God for his children.
Beginning this journey can come in the humor of God’s character even for the seriousness it represents.
God is God and he can do what he wants, when he wants. He has a wild imagination when it comes to saving souls; even to the inspired use of props unlikely fitting for his purpose. But it works.
Whatever he uses, be it a friend, book or movie the end result confirms the death and Resurrection. Somehow it leads to that hill of death.
As the horror sets in of the Cross of Christ, that moment in time places the searching soul at his bloody, pierced feet and nailed hands. Noticing the beaten and bruised body, and the disfigurement of hatred the reality that the lost soul had as much to do with Jesus crucifixion as the Roman soldiers did who physically hung him.
Understanding his misery, pain and agony is the stepping stone of why he went through the worst death in history. Every sin is re-posted on that cross but his blood shed cleared the defendants who committed them.
The repentant sinner’s heart is cleansed, purified and saved from eternity away from the Father. He has opened the gate and let us in.
There really is no comparable to match this outcome.
The “coming together” lends itself to total redemption for humans that don’t deserve anything good. If that doesn’t change a person, they haven’t truly been to the cross.
Folks this is no movie.
The hill of death may be today,
Jesus was looking at Sunday.
