Hopefully you can see this picture a little bit better and perhaps read the verses surrounding it. Jesus paid it ALL. To every person who believes, they have eternal life, mercy, and are born into a new family.
We must remember, that the person who refuses God and as an act of their will, and he or she thumbs their nose at God, the wrath of God still abides on that person. That person will not see life unless they believe. God is holy.
Jesus drank the cup of poison .
His blood was enough to quench its power.
The cross of Jesus Christ was magnified in power as Jesus died, was buried, and rose again so that He could bring God’s family back to Him. No more wrath. No more poison. No more eternal death.
To the believer, that is all gone.
Paul said, “I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. I was weak . . . but my preaching was not with man’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and power so your faith will not rest in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
Father, we forsake the wisdom of men and cling to the new covenant, the new Tree of Life, the cross of Jesus Christ, for it is the POWER of God in our lives. We honor you, Jesus, and your sacrifice to drink the poison of our sin and experience the wrath of God against sin. Thank you, Jesus. As often as we drink the cup . . . the communion cup . . . we remember you . . . your shed blood . . . the day the wrath of God struck His Son for us.
