Don’t Trample The Blood

26 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. 29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? ~ Hebrews 10:26-29

God didn’t just choose a righteous man to die for all of the unrighteous people of the world. God chose His Son. He chose the one who bore His very Image from before the very beginning. God chose someone who bore His very own Divine Nature. So, 2,000 years ago, God the Son set off His God-Divine nature and took on our nature. Our weak, easily tempted, ignorant, finite flesh. Why? One word, love.

He loved the creation He had created, for nothing was created without Him, and all things were created through Him and for Him. This is who died for us. The very Word of God became flesh to die for a wicked, ungrateful, evil, slothful, and treacherous world. The love of God is shown through this single act of love because even as they mocked Him and laughed at His pain, Jesus prayed for them.

He prayed for the forgiveness of the Father on their behalf. He prayed that they might be shown mercy instead of the righteous wrath of God that they deserved. Every time we sin and give into temptation, we trample on the blood of Jesus, yet just as He prayed for those mocking Him that day on the cross, He prays for us now. Not just for mercy but that the Spirit of Grace might convict and lead us back to Him. What can we do to repay such a great love? Nothing we have of value but this life He has given us. Therefore, the only way to pay Him back is to give ourselves to Him. This is all He requires in return. Love for love.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Don’t Trample The Blood.
