Jesus Paid It All by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Jesus Paid It All by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him;
he hath put him to grief: when thou
shalt make his soul an offering for sin…
(Isaiah 53:10).

The Lord Jesus suffered and endured the pain
and shame of the Cross, not on account of
His sins or for Himself, but for us. He took
our place and suffered for us.

At a stage, while on the Cross carrying the
burden of our sins, He cried out in anguish, “…Eloi, Eloi,
lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God,
my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34).
God turned His back on Jesus because our sins were
laid on Him. Habakkuk 1:13 tells us God is holy and
doesn’t behold iniquity.

It was in anticipation of this that Jesus prayed in
the Garden of Gethsemane: “…saying, O my Father, if it
be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not
as I will, but as thou wilt” (Matthew 26:39). The Bible
specifically records that sweat came out of His body
like great drops of blood.

He prayed with such anguish and agony of soul.
He wasn’t willing to be cut off from His Father, because
He loved His Father so much, but the Father wanted
Him to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world.

So, Jesus died on the Cross, and descended into
hell; punished by God in hell on our behalf. He didn’t
just go to hell, He was put to grief, and according to our theme scripture, it was God who did it; howbeit, for our
sakes. And after He had taken all the punishment that
was necessary, the Bible tells us that Jesus Christ was
justified in the Spirit (1 Timothy 3:16).

Today, because of His vicarious suffering and
sacrifice in your behalf, sin and its consequences have
no dominion over you. The Bible says through Him,
we’ve been justified—declared righteous! Now, you’re
free to serve the Lord and live joyfully in His presence
for eternity, all because of Jesus.

Dear Father, I thank you for sending Jesus to die
in our place, thereby paying the full penalty for our
sins. I rejoice, knowing that His sacrifice for sin was
the ultimate sacrifice by which I now stand justified
in your presence, and ushered into this new life of
righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
