I had the privilege of preaching the word of God at Rustburg Correctional Facility today, where I delivered a message about what is arguably the greatest promise God has ever made to humankind. I sought to remind the inmates of God’s incredible love displayed in it, and to “not compromise that promise”.
You might wonder just what that promise is. Well, it starts and ends at the cross. I believe that the crucifixion of Jesus Christ speaks volumes to us about how we are to live… yes, live! Jesus’ entire life was not only the required sacrifice to save us from our sins, but it was also the prime example of what it means to live in relation to the God of heaven. Everything from his reliance on the Father for food, clothing, shelter, and miracles, to his continual conversations with the Father about all that pertained to his life and purpose for being born.
And there were only a couple of times in Scripture where we can see that there is an apparent dis-connect between God the Father and Christ the Son. And I emphasis “apparent”, because of course we know that there was and never will be a complete disconnection between the Father and the Son. But by God’s design, there appeared to be one for a very, very good reason.
This is a great article on the greatest promise ever made to humankind. Written by Keith from The Bellwether Sounds this article details why that promise is so wonderful and what we need to do with it. The promise of eternal life, but more, the promise of this life and the fact that God is with us…always.
