DEVOTION for Today

Only One Redeemer

God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8.

As soon as there was sin, there was a Saviour. Christ knew that He would have to suffer, yet He became man’s substitute. As
soon as Adam sinned, the Son of God presented Himself as surety for the human race.
Think of how much it cost Christ to leave the heavenly courts, and take His position at the head of humanity. Why did He do
this? Because He was the only one who could redeem the fallen race. There was not a human being in the world who was without sin. The Son of God stepped down
from His heavenly throne, laid off His royal robe and kingly crown, and clothed His divinity with humanity. He came to die for us, to lie in the tomb as human beings must, and to be raised for our justification. He came to become acquainted with all the
temptations wherewith man is beset. He rose from the grave and proclaimed over the rent sepulcher of Joseph, “I am the
resurrection, and the life.” One equal with God passed through death in our behalf. He tasted death for every man, that through
Him every man might be a partaker of eternal life.

Christ ascended to heaven, bearing a sanctified, holy humanity. He took this humanity with Him into the heavenly
courts, and through the eternal ages He will bear it as the One who has redeemed every human being in the city of God, the One
who has pleaded before the Father, “I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.”
The palms of His hands bear the marks of the wounds that He received. If we are wounded and bruised, if we meet with
difficulties that are hard to manage, let us remember how much Christ suffered for us….
Our Saviour bore all that we are called upon to bear, so that no human being could say, “He does not know my suffering and
my trials.” In all our afflictions He was afflicted….
Satan declared that human beings could not live without sin.

Christ passed over the ground where Adam stumbled and fell, and by a sinless life placed the human race on vantage ground, that every one might stand
before the Father, accepted in the Beloved.
