Deity Did Not Die

Call to Worship


Mark 16: 6

And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.


Deity Did Not Die—

Was the human nature of the Son of Mary changed into the divine nature of the Son of God? No; the two natures were mysteriously blended in one person—the man Christ Jesus. In Him dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. When Christ was crucified, it was His human nature that died. Deity did not sink and die; that would have been impossible. Christ, the sinless One, will save every son and daughter of Adam who accepts the salvation proffered them, consenting to become the children of God. The Saviour has purchased the fallen race with His own blood. {5BC 1113.2}


This is a great mystery, a mystery that will not be fully, completely understood in all its greatness until the translation of the redeemed shall take place. Then the power and greatness and efficacy of the gift of God to man will be understood. But the enemy is determined that this gift shall be so mystified that it will become as nothingness (Letter 280, 1904). {5BC 1113.3}


Behold, the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. Christ Jesus, the man, did not die in vain. He gave His life to cover our sins, so that we may have eternal life. Though God has not told us all the mysteries in heaven, what we do know is that he gave His son because He so loves us, that He desires none should perish but have everlasting life. Sin is what separates us from God. That is why Satan wants to keep us in sin. Christ Jesus saves us from our sin, not in our sin. Christ is risen, and sits at the right hand of our Father in the Most Holy Place in the heavenly sanctuary as our great intercessor. He paid the ransom for us with His own blood, that we might live if we accept the salvation offered.


Our Father, which art in heaven,

We thank You and are eternally grateful for the sacrifice You made of Your only begotten son that we might have everlasting life. We come to You as sinners, and are sorry and humbly repent of all our sins. We pray that You forgive us of all our sins, the known and the unknown, that You wash us clean in the blood of Christ. We are so sorry we ever hurt You. We pray that You help us overcome, as You also overcame, that we would sin no more. We pray that we are worthy of having our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life to spend an eternity with You in Your heavenly kingdom. Save us, dear Lord, in the name of Christ Jesus, we pray. Amen.
