Trust Christ

Re:Verse passage – 1 Peter 3:18-22 (day four)

Prior to Christ, the picture we have of redemption is the work of the priests bringing a sacrifice to atone for sin.  The sacrifices had to be repeated over and over, because they could not pay the full price.  At the right time, Christ came…the sinless, spotless lamb of God…to die once for our sin.  Hebrews 9:24-28 tells us that story.  Christ was able to pay the full price for our sin.

When we die…which we all will…we will stand in judgment…which we all will…before God.  If we have received the gift of salvation through Christ, we will stand before God, not in reference to sin, but rather for salvation.

If any message can be learned from Peter, it is ‘trust Christ’.  His sacrifice, given for our redemption from sin, was planned before the beginning of time.  God is an infinite God…He transcends time.  The work of Christ seems to us to have been long ago, when in God’s timetable, it is as fresh as your last breath!  Trust Christ!
