That Christmas night the right hand of the Lord was revealed as a character of trouble, (the authorities even hunted him as a baby) rejected, overlooked, hated, mocked, bullied, & blamed. The virgin bore a child born to die as a scapegoat, to carry all the curses of all peoples, He absorbed the consequences of all evil, sin, transgression, iniquity, sickness and death. He did all of this for all of us. He did this for you. By whose once-shredded flesh healing now flows to all who are willing look upon him (who loved us & gave himself for us) & live. The sacrificial lamb foretold; foreshadowed by the ancient ceremonies, both substitute & surety, humanity's representative, surrogate & proxy. The punishment that brought peace, fell on him who tasted death for every single person who ever existed, exists, or will exist & settled once and for all the blood debt owed by the entire human race Stake your claim for the benefits accrued by what he did for you- because the transaction is already accomplished, unrepeatable, done, paid for. and this is proven by the fact that he rose up as the prevailing master of the universe. Own him as the most incredible gift life has to offer, and he will own you as his friend, child, and coworker.
