Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV)
These are the verses of Scripture that every one of us should hide in our hearts. Being crucified on a cross under the law of Moses was the worst form of death and punishment, the victim was seen as the worst form of a criminal, cursed both by man and by God. Christ on the cross took upon Himself the curse due you and me personally, thereby making the way for the blessings of Abraham to come upon all who believe on His redeeming sacrifice. With the curse out of the way, the Holy Spirit comes to enforce the blessings.
Yours in Christ, Pastor Festus Nsoha
