When Christ died on the Cross, “He carried our sins in his body so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right” (1 Peter 2:24). Heaven’s work of redemption was finished. Whatever barrier that had separated us, or might ever separate us from God was gone. The nagging questions are gone: Am I good enough? Will I achieve enough?
The legalist finds rest. The atheist finds hope. God is not a god of burdens but a God of rest. He knows we cannot achieve perfection. Jesus invites, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me. For I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28-30). What a promise! And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakeable!
