The death of Christ is a guarantee that every promise God has made is ‘Yes’ and ‘Amen’ in New Creation life. This guarantee is a promise “right up to the end that you would be counted free from all sin and guilt.” (1 Corinthians 1:8). Because of the finished work of Christ on the cross two thousand years ago, we are now counted free and every moment we live until the day He returns we are held in the guarantee of the cross.
The foundation of the New Covenant is sealed with the blood of Jesus. When the bible speaks of the blood of Jesus, it is speaking of his death. Everything that was accomplished at the cross, was made possible by the shedding of his blood.
But more than this, much more, is the revelation that the blood of Jesus accomplished His resurrection. The resurrection of Jesus was God’s universal endorsement that the obedience of Christ was fully absorbed and completely paid for, all the consequences of Adams sin. The point is that the resurrection proves that the death of Jesus paid everything in full. If Jesus did not rise from the dead, then his death was a failure. His death provided his guarantee that his resurrection would be our resurrection.
This is the absolute promise of today. God wants you and I to live our lives free from the consequences of sin and free from guilt. Guilt free living is God’s best for His people. By God’s grace we are guaranteed to live a life of communion with his son. A co-partnership of fellowship with the son. A guarantee that we are now blameless in Christ and much more than this, we are made holy by the death and resurrection of Jesus.
God’s guarantee is that he is forever faithful and He can be trusted to fulfil all his promises in our lives. His guarantee is that his finished work is complete and therefore we are now complete in Christ Jesus.
