Perhaps you heard of great battles that had been won, but do you know the greatest battle ever won?
2000 years ago, it occurred upon Golgotha’s hill where heaven and hell, justice and mercy, sin and forgiveness met. In that battle, the Saviour took our pain and punishment of death and nailed them to the cross making a public display of His triumphant sacrifice and love that embraced even the worst of sinners.
There on the cross, our certificate of sentence to death was cancelled, erased because it was paid by the precious blood of the innocent Lamb, because of His immeasurable love.
How do I know who won the battle, for it seemed that for a moment He had lost when He said, “it is finished!” and breathed what seemed His last? Because upon the third day, He concurred the grave, He broke the chains of hell and death and now reigns victorious – forever.
“having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him. Colossians 2:14-15
