When I saw those turkey vultures, which Tim pointed out to me, I immediately thought of how they pictured life and the necessity of death so they could have life. The death of the animal in the middle of the road will not impact anyone or anything else in life but those vultures. As unimportant as that death is to us, there was one death that IS important to ALL humanity. If that death had not happened, no one could have eternal life.
I am so glad that Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was willing to leave heaven and enter our physical realm through the virgin birth for the sole purpose of living to die.....for us! "and without shedding of blood is no remission." Hebrews 9:22 You can't be good enough in and of yourself to get into heaven. If that is all it takes to get into heaven (being "good"), then Jesus died in vain! But, that is NOT possible! The Bible clearly tells us that "there is N.O.N.E. righteous (good), No! not one." Romans 3:10
So, someone without sin had to die in our place.....someone who had no sins to be paid for. The only person who fits that category is Jesus. I pray you have recognized you are a sinner (we all are) and have asked Jesus to forgive your sins (we all have not) and have put your full faith in His death to pay for your sins.
OK, so life meets death in the physical realm AND the spiritual realm!
Since it has been a week since I posted anything, let me share some pictures with you. Enjoy reading the captions! Until tomorrow......
