Saved by His Death

Is it possible that one person’s death could impact the lives of many people? I believe that a person’s death could be even more influential than their life. America’s Pastor, Billy Graham, led many to Christ when he was alive, but I’m sure that many more came to know the Saviour through his death.

How much more the death of God’s only Son, Jesus! Jesus Himself said that through His death, He would draw many to Himself, “And I, as I am lifted up from the earth, will attract everyone to me and gather them around me.” He put it this way to show how he was going to be put to death” (John 12:32). Even His enemies, unknowingly testified to this fact:

Then one of them—it was Caiaphas, the designated Chief Priest that year—spoke up, “Don’t you know anything? Can’t you see that it’s to our advantage that one man dies for the people rather than the whole nation be destroyed?” He didn’t say this of his own accord, but as Chief Priest that year he unwittingly prophesied that Jesus was about to die sacrificially for the nation, and not only for the nation but so that all God’s exile-scattered children might be gathered together into one people. (John 11:50-52)

As we journey to Easter, let’s thank God for the death of Jesus because if He didn’t die for our sins, we wouldn’t be alive in Him (Romans 6). You were saved by His death.
