Part II of the series I am working on through the New Testament. If you do not already know about the series this post is a part of, click here.
What is Christ to us? We saw earlier through the book of Matthew that Christ is the Son of God, and this is the most important aspect of Him. In Mark, we find that Jesus is our Ransom. Mark 10:45 - "For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many."
This is how we are accepted into the Kingdom of God:. At first we are taken prisoner, slaves to sin, but when the Son of God comes down and ministers unto us, His Life is all that is needed to ransom us from our captivity. Are you weak, sick and tired, and trying to do it all on your own? Stop your struggle. Let the Son of God be your Perfect Ransom, and as He promised, you will find rest for your soul.
