Last week, while I was dumping the trash in this dumpster and my car key slipped out of my hands and fell into it. I immediately realized what just happened and was left out with two options. One is to just ignore that key and get a duplicate key or second option is to search and find the lost key from this dumpster.
I decided to find this lost key instead of going for the duplicate key option. It was challenging, I looked around to make sure that no one was watching me, then I unwillingly jumped into this dumpster to search my key in the thrash and I found it then I picked up the key, then I jumped out of that dumpster, I was so happy that I found my lost keys.
God reminded me through this incident that just like how this key fell into the trash, we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God which is as equal to that of car key that fell into that dumpster and got trapped. The key cannot come out automatically, likewise we cannot save ourselves and Jesus is our savior. I was ashamed and looked around before I jumped into that dumpster to save my key, but our Lord Jesus was not ashamed when He came down to save us. I was not willing to jump in to find the keys, but Jesus willingly paid the price when He came down to find us and to save, because He loves us so much! He became sin, who knew no sin, that we might become His righteousness. Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus Romans 8:1
He redeemed us by paying the great price as a penalty by shedding the blood on the cross and died for us to save us, when we fell God never thought about recreating some other creature (similar to duplicate key option) to replace humans, instead He restored us when we were lost by sending His Son Jesus. Once we were lost as like that key but now we are found by the grace and love of our God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus died for us, but God raised Him from dead on the third day and our Lord lives forever! Thank God for we are saved by grace and through faith! Let us keep ourselves in the His love and remain in Him! Thank God for He restored us. Jesus loves us! We are precious for God because God sent His precious son to gave His life to save us! God blessed us! Praise and Glory to God forever and ever! Amen!
