- Moses led his people out of Egypt and then ultimately failed them in his sin against God in the desert that would keep him from the promised land.
- Joseph tried to save God’s people by bringing them into Egypt and save them from famine, but ultimately just led them into slavery.
- Pick any one of the judges who got appointed to save the oppressed, downtrodden people of God and you’ll see their ultimate failure in the end.
- David, titled “a man after God’s own heart,” had everything in line to bring God’s kingdom to ultimate power, and instead sinned against God by sleeping with Bathsheba and killing her husband.
Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer; But this I know with all my heart His wounds have paid my ransom.That’s why today is good: Christ had to die for people who couldn’t fix their sin problem so that they could gain relationship with the holy Father again. Without His death we would still be looking for a perfect Savior to pay our ransom. Christ has died. In three days we celebrate that death and that sin could not hold him, and our God could never be conquered by the grave.
