The Might And Majesty Of The Risen Savior

by Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson, Western Journalism:

At Eastertime, Christians rejoice and give praise for the resurrection of mankind’s Savior.

Words often fall short of communicating the full magnificence of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let me try by offering that He was the most complete package ever to grace this earth. He was the supreme example of both meekness and might—widely different qualities that often are mutually exclusive in a typical human being, but were a divinely natural and necessary combination in the Savior. Indeed, as both Son of God and Son of Man—as both divine and human united in one individuality—Christ Jesus was perfection incarnate, a majestic and unique wonder, the contemplation of which should inspire, awe, and humble us.

The meekness and humility of the Lord are unmistakable in word and deed. He declared, “I can of mine own self do nothing … I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me” (John 5:30); and when he was addressed as “Good Master,” he replied, “Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God” (Mark 10:17-18). In vivid and sublime demonstration of his meekness, he knelt and washed his disciples’ feet (John 13:1-15).

    Given this time of the year, when Christians reflect upon the death and sacrifice of their Lord and Savior, one does well to ponder the question “For Whom Did Jesus Christ Die For?”…

    Dr. John Owen (Born in 1616 – Died in 1683), Chaplain to Oliver Cromwell and Vice Chancellor of Oxford University, tackles this question at great depth in his book “The Death of Death in the Death of Christ”.

    Below is a short abridgment, taken from the words of Dr. Owen, where he logically explains the following:

    Christ suffered and died for either:

    a. all the sins of all men; or
    b. all the sins of some men; or
    c. some of the sins of all men

    If the last statement is true, then all men are still left with some sins to answer for, and so no-one can be redeemed.

    If the first statement is true, then why are not all men freed from their sins and the punishment due unto their sins?
    You may say, “Because of their unbelief.”
    But I ask, “Is unbelief a sin?”
    If unbelief is not a sin, then why are men punished for it?
    If unbelief is a sin, then it must be among the sins for which Christ died.
    If Christ suffered the punishment due unto the sin of unbelief, why does unbelief still hinder men more than other sins for which he died?
    If Christ did not suffer the punishment due unto the sin of unbelief, then Christ did not die for all of their sins. So the first statement cannot be true!

    If the second statement is true, then Christ, on behalf of His chosen elect people throughout the whole world, died for all their sins and freed them from sin’s dominion (including the sin of unbelief). It is this that I believe is the teaching of the Bible.

    Ephesians 5:25 ~ Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

    John 10:11,14,15,25-28 ~ I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. [14] I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. [15] As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. [25] Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. [26] But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. [27] My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: [28] And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
