My God Fought…and Won!

In most societies in history kings would not fight in battles. What reminded me of this was a scene in “The Lord of the Rings”. In this scene the king sits, eats, and listens to the hobbit sing while his army fights the evil that is at his door step. Here is the clip:

The scene is great because of its amazing cinematography. It highlights the king eating in luxury while his army gets absolutely  decimated. The king simply ordered his army to go to battle. He did not fight. He did not feel the pain they felt. He wasn’t harmed or killed. He didn’t overcome the enemy. This is not the case with God.

God wrapped himself in flesh and took on the form of a man (John 1:14). Like all men, he faced temptation (Heb. 4:15). He taught, showed, and lived God’s will. He was crucified on a cross (Mark 15:37). He was buried (Matt. 27:57-61). And he rose again (Matt. 28:1-10).

My God fought the greatest evil the world has ever known. He battled sin his whole life. And his ministry culminated in the greatest self-giving action in history. Jesus, my God and savior, died on a cross to pay the due penalty for sin and conquered death by rising from the grave!

My God fought and won…Do you know Him?

  1. I remind myself of this fact every day. How awesome is my God that He should die for me.

    (Song)

    Who am I that you should love me
    And your Spirit fix in me?
    Who am I that you should die Lord
    Hanging there upon the tree?
    For you touched your servants’ heart Lord,
    Still in her iniquity,
    As she humbly came before you,
    You were pleased to set her free.

    O Your love is so abounding
    It is all a mystery,
    Far beyond my understanding
    Even though it dwells in me,
    Lead me on to pastures new Lord,
    Keep me ever constantly,
    Seeking ways to love and serve you,
    I my frail humanity.
