Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice so we could receive the ultimate gift.
Matthew 27:50 changed history. In this moment, Jesus took on the weight of the world. He bore the wrong-doings of every man and woman that has ever lived or ever will live. Jesus paid the sin-debt of death for all of humanity. In the beginning, God and humankind enjoyed a perfect relationship, spending everyday together. But sin changed that. God is perfect and holy, and He can not associate with sin, evil, or injustice. He is against His very nature. By our own sin, we had separated ourselves from God. And only one penalty could heal our sin-debt: death. Blood would need to be shed. It was the only way. Until Jesus came to earth. He lived a perfect life in an imperfect world. He was innocent, the one human that did not need to appease the blood-debt. But He stood in our place. He took on our debt and paid the price with His life. Now, through His death, our debt has been paid. And through His resurrection, death and hell and sin have been conquered once and for all! The gift of true Life is now available to anyone who will place their trust in Jesus, recognizing our need for a Savior who gave everything for us.
