Genesis 1:1-2; 1 Chronicles 29:11; Job 41:11; Psalm 50:12; Isaiah 66:1-2; Colossians 2:10
Thus says the Lord: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me?”
The world offers us many things that seem to bring joy, but nothing brings true joy like what God offers us through His Son, Jesus. This truth is revealed in the story of the man finding a priceless treasure in a field and selling everything he has to buy the field and the merchant discovering a priceless pearl and giving everything he has to keep the pearl. God’s kingdom is our priceless treasure. It is worth everything we have.
God Is Satisfied – God Gives A Substitute
God is holy and just. Everything He does is right and good. In His holiness and justice, He must punish injustice. His righteous wrath (anger against sin) must be satisfied. Sin and rebellion cannot be ignored or looked over. It must be dealt with, and we as guilty sinners deserve God’s wrath to be poured out on us. Thankfully, God, in His mercy, chose to forgive us. The only way He could do this was by punishing Jesus in our place. He sent His Son to be a substitute for our sin in order to rescue us. Jesus bore the punishment that we deserve.
