Bible Verse of the Day
14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
1 Peter 2:24
This weekend as I was setting in church, I was looking at a cross hanging on the wall and thought about what God was doing when He letbe crucified on it.
Have you ever heard the term place a stake in the ground? Do you know what it means and its origin?
There are several different reported origins including:
1. The act of claiming ground… many times as settlers moved west they would set stakes claiming the ground that was theirs.
2. Driving an object in the ground to secure and set up a tent.
3. A critical part of staking out a house. It defines the amount of ground the house will occupy.
Aren’t those some of the things the father did as He let the stake (Cross) be driven in the ground?
Through Jesus death, resurrection, and accession God reclaimed his ground (His people), He established that His residence here with His beloved.
It is in this that we are freed from the legalism of the enemy and the truth of his condemnation. It is through this we begin to be healed.
It was a costly price driving this stake, but it was the only way to secure restoration for the ones He loves (you and me).
Don’t let this sacrifice be wasted. Live in the truth of what was taken back from the world and the evil one that day.
Live in freedom.
Have a blessed day,
