Our Savior Goes to War: Jesus Overcomes our Judgment

Our sin and our failures demand only one thing—judgment. What our thoughts, words, and actions have earned for us is not only death, but a complete separation from God and his love.. In other words, hell. Today, though, we hear again about a Savior who goes to war for us. A Savior who comes with one mission and a singular, unwavering focus on that purpose: to save us. Jesus has come to suffer. Jesus has come to die. Jesus has come to take the judgment our sins deserve and to stand condemned for them. Jesus comes to take our judgment and overcome—and he does! He now lives and promises us that our sin is forgiven, that there is now no condemnation for us! So, while we see his suffering and death for us, we rejoice in the victory he has given us.
