This is Our Salvation

Re:Verse passage – Job 13:15-16; 14:1-2, 14-17 (day seven)

This also will be my salvation,
For a godless person cannot come before His presence. Job 13:16

This is our salvation. Our Savior was “born of a woman.” He came to walk in our shoes. He came to feel our pain and agony. He came to live our life. Yet, He came to die our death. He came to us so that we could come to Him:

For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things just as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15

This is our salvation. Our Savior “does not observe [our] sin” because He became it. He became our darkest secrets. He became deepest regrets. He became the very thing we hate. He became sin so we could become like Him:

He made Him who knew no sin to be sin in our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Cor 5:21

This is our salvation. The stone is rolled away. He conquered sin and grave. He lives so that we can “live again.” This is our salvation.
