Sins Covered

April 4th, 2009

2 Corinthians 5:21

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

There is a person who is known to be sinless. It was Jesus. Just by having that distinction, he holds a place that is over us. We are the ones who continue to sin. We just keep on doing it.

Jesus is over us, as in higher in rank, but also in a way so as to cover us. It's like having a screen, or a filter that God sees through the body of Jesus, and through to us. Though we are sinful, the covering of Jesus makes righteous to appear before God.

My parents used to have a bible, they probably still do somewhere in their house, that had a section with a red cellophane page, and one with a drawing that was supposed to represent our lives. The drawing was marred with big red words. A list of various sins that the Bible teaches about. Things that we all do. With those red marks, the illustration that represented a life was hard to see, and made a very confusing picture.

Turn the page, and place that red cellophane page over it, just the way Jesus covers our sins, and all the redmarks just seem to disappear. The marks of sin are still there, but through the filter of Jesus, God sees the beauty in our lives and not the sin.

Let Jesus be your filter. Claim your place in the family of Jesus today. Read the pageĀ  about 'How to be Saved.' If you are already there, keep abiding in him, like the branches and the vine in John 15:1-17. Though we are sinful, strive to use Jesus as your model for life.
