To see the crucifixion and the plan of salvation God ordained, we must grasp it… as much as we can… from a GOD point of view!
It’s all about relationship. There is no relationship if we are slaves to God’s will. Out of lavish love God gave us free will. A relationship with God needs to come out of love and respect and deep gratitude and the knowledge that God is… well, God! We were made to be in a relationship… a real and intimate relationship with God!
. And once the sin was covered (but not paid for), God and man could have a relationship… that is… until the next sin! There was a whole lot of sacrificing by the Jews, God’s people. I would have been no different… would you?
