“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”–Galatians 3:13-14
A middle school teacher recently shared some of the answers he received from students on assignments. One student said, “The pistol of a flower is its only protection against insects.” Another thought the word germinate meant to “become a naturalized German citizen” and that a vacuum was where the pope lived. A fibula, said another student, is a small lie; and a terminal illness is what happens when you get sick at the airport.
Job had a lot of questions, but he and his friends kept getting their answers mixed up. But on the final exam, Job got it right when he said, “I know that my Redeemer liveth” (Job 19:25).
All our great and confusing questions can be answered in our living Redeemer. If you’re suffering, He can ease your pain. If you’re confused, He can clear your mind. If you’re fearful, He can give you peace. If you have bad habits, He can help you conquer them. If you struggle with guilt, He can forgive your sins. If you’re afraid of death, He can give you eternal life.
Our Redeemer is the answer to all the questions in our hearts.– Turning Point
