The old song goes "I get joy when I think about what He's done for me!" I Peter 4:8: And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. In other words we say LOVE COVERS A MULTITUDE OF TRANSGRESSIONS and indeed it----- HE does.
The WORD tells us that God is LOVE. I John 4:7,8,16. Love covers a multitude of transgressions means that GOD COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS. When did He do that, when He cried out "FATHER FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO!" from Calvary's cross. Yes we were aware that we arrested Him, gave Him a kangaroo trial, mocked and scorned Him, beat His back open with 39 stripes, spat in His face and crowned Him with thorns as we pierced His hands, feet and side and bartered for His garments. Yes, we knew we did that! BUT, had they (WE) known they (WE) would not have crucified the Lord of Glory! That's why the soldiers cried, This is indeed the very Christ. Yet, He forgave us. That is the mind blower. That is quintessential love.
The problem is when He came, He came to His own and they received Him not. John 1. The scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees...spent their time trying to kill Him. We try to pretend we don't know Him in certain company like Peter warming himself at the enemies fire, we deny Him when we see the singing, dancing, shouting, glorification and say ' AWE!, IT DON'T TAKE ALL THAT.'
The more He blessed them, the worse they became. Hosanna, 'God save us' on Palm Sunday became CRUCIFY HIM later, out of the same mouths. BUT HE FORGAVE US. HE WAS HUNG HIGH AND STRETCHED WIDE, MADE INTO A PLUS SIGN...HIS DEATH ADDED TO US...HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES, THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED. Isaiah 53. NOW THAT'S COVERED!!!
Sin is the biggest WRECK we can ever be in and our Jesus policy pays it in full. There are no exclusions, no deductibles, no gap coverages, no waiting periods, no cancellations, no denials.
Shout with me COVERED....HALLELUJAH!
