What if Jesus had not Died?

Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will."

Matthew 26:39

Have you ever wondered what would have happened if, for example, the Puritans had not come looking for a land where they could freely worship God? The United States of America would not exist. What if Jonas Salk's parents had never met? He would not have invented the Polio vaccine.

The world would be very different without such a wonderful country and an amazing vaccine, but nothing would be worse than if Jesus had not died on the cross. Think about it; it was not like Jesus had no choice. He could have told His Father; I will not drink from this cup. He would still be Jesus, the Son of God, the Lord of Lords, and the goal of all creation.

On the other hand, we would probably not exist, for God would have been forced to execute His justice on Earth. My friends, God has not destroyed the human race because we live in the dispensation of grace purchased by Christ's blood, and the Church of Jesus is still on Earth.

If we are honest, we must admit we deserve a worldwide flood more than the people in the times of Noah did, and Sodom and Gomorrah probably never saw some of the atrocities we now call "normal." By the grace of God and because Jesus chose to die for us instead of living without us, we get to live in peace with God, but let us never forget or take Jesus's sacrifice for granted.

Therefore, this Easter week and especially on Resurrection Sunday, let us take some time to celebrate God's goodness with our families. Let us remember the cost of our salvation and ensure everyone in our families understands why we come together to celebrate Easter Sunday. We celebrate Easter because Jesus, our Lord, gave His life for us and did not stay in the tomb. Our Lord is alive and well. Our Lord is Risen!
