The Kitchen Table
But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him Acts 2:24
What godless men did through godless hands, Jesus defeated with godly love. Death can’t take what loves makes. But to defeat death, Jesus had to meet death at its’ door from faith, with hope in love. Jesus went to the cross, believing God and His word that He would raise Him up from the dead in love. And because He lives, we will too. Death can’t take what love makes. The agony of death is defeated by the affection of God. Jesus went there for us so that we wouldn’t have to go there without Him.
