Have you ever wanted a “do over”… a “second chance”? Christ is just that. In the beginning…in Eden, the Spirit moved upon the earth that was formed in the image of God and it became living flesh. This Adam became negatively charged, fell and drug the world down with him. A second time, the Spirit moved upon a virgin (made of the same earth) and the second “Adam” was born…this time not to fall…this time to keep the positive “+” charge from above and regain the fallen earth.
I was concerned that I would forget in Heaven what was done on earth to save me because I am so prone to forget right now. I felt that if I could just remember, then I wouldn’t fall. Scared that sin might rise up a second time in me, I prayed and asked God to help me to remember at what great price my place in Heaven was bought…then immediately my prayer was answered when I read these words:
The cross of Christ will be the science and the song of the redeemed through all eternity. In Christ glorified they will behold Christ crucified. Never will it be forgotten that He whose power created and upheld the unnumbered worlds through the vast realms of space, the Beloved of God, the Majesty of heaven, He whom cherub and shining seraph delighted to adore – humbled Himself to uplift fallen man; that He bore the guilt and shame of sin, and the hiding of His Father’s face, till the woes of a lost world broke His heart and crushed out His life on Calvary’s cross. That the Maker of all worlds, the Arbiter of all destinies, should lay aside His glory and humiliate Himself from love to man will ever excite the wonder and adoration of the universe. As the nations of the saved look upon their Redeemer and behold the eternal glory of the Father shining in His countenance; as they behold His throne, which is from everlasting to everlasting, and know that His kingdom is to have no end, they break forth in rapturous song: “Worthy, worthy is the Lamb that was slain, and hath redeemed us to God by His own most precious blood!” – Our Father Cares
