Charles Warner | The Union Times The sacrifices Jesus made on behalf of the human race did not begin at Golgotha, but in His mother Mary’s womb. Jesus left the perfection of His heavenly home for the imperfection of this world. He who was immortal and would have otherwise never have experienced death became human, became mortal, and thus, like all human beings, destined to die. Having become human He lived an earthly life with all the challenges that comes with it and then, in the final three years of that life, began His ministry, a ministry that, like His entire earthly life, followed the path that lead to His death by crucifixion. That, however, was not the end of His sacrifice, because in addition to suffering a brutal and agonizing death, Christ, who had never known sin, took upon Himself the sins of the human race to provide each of us with the path to eternal salvation. In doing so, He did what no one else could do, become a living sacrifice for our sins with His shed blood cleansing us in forgiveness. He then did something else no one else had ever done or will ever do, He rose from the dead and then, after a brief resumption of His earthly ministry, He ascended into Heaven where He continues through the ministry and life story He left behind and through the Holy Spirit He has sent down since the first Day of Pentecost to change lives and save souls and will continue to do so until the end of time. Christ has done a lot for each and everyone of us and what He has done no one could have done or ever will do. With all that in mind, ask yourself what you have done for Christ who has done so much for you.
