Lifted Burden

Yeshua is not just a separate being from us who dies in our stead. God expects us to respond to this great act of mercy, and if we do, we are under His representative cover, racially and spiritually in him. Just as Adam's sin corrupted the whole race, so the righteousness of Yeshua is now in us. In the resurrection, He will bring us to perfection. Therefore, both because He paid the price representatively and we are judged as part of Him by God ... and because we are now children of God headed toward perfection, God can fully accept and forgive us while yet maintaining the absolute holiness and inviolability of His Law ...

In Yeshua, God brought these realities to bear upon the whole human race that we might have our burden lifted, that we might be forgiven and be made new creatures in Him. It is to this that the Mosaic sacrificial system of substitution points. Praise God for these wonderful truths and the power of goodness that comesinto our lives by faith when we truly believe.
