“You were slain, and by Your blood You ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.” (Revelation 5:9b)
Nobody watching Jesus bleed out on the cross had a chipper outlook for the future.
To be sure, Jesus had told His disciples He would rise again, but their astonishment when He showed up again reveals they hadn’t bought in 100%.
But Jesus has a way of changing insurmountable obstacles into unexpected blessings.
His life was a demonstration, but His death was the true deliverance. Many people were helped by His words, but the real power was in His blood.
When your circumstances look like death, remember that Jesus changes everything, and let yourself be comforted by this truth.
Jesus turns death into deliverance.
