IV. Purpose of his burial.

It is of utmost importance that we as believers seek to understand the impact of what Jesus has done for us. There was a purpose, a plan and reason for the things that Jesus Christ did for us. While we were yet without strength, Jesus died for us. The plan of salvation wasn’t designed in such a way to accommodate our input. God decided to save man based on his loving nature.  “For God so loved the world” This is an act of God, an act of love, real love in action; love that loves the unlovely, “agape” love that seeks out the lost. Real love has with it compassion, love that does and acts on behalf of its object of love. God has an unconditional love for humanity. God only asks that you accept his love through his Son Jesus Christ. There was a purpose for Jesus expressing his love to us thru suffering. Man lost in a sinful state had no one and no way of being redeemed. But, “God so loved, that he gave….” God gave his Son and his Son gave his life. When we think about that scripture in St. John 3:16, we immediately focus on the cross of Calvary. When we look closer with spiritual discernment, we will realize that God gave his Son in different ways. God gave his Son Jesus to be an example thus. God gave his Son Jesus Christ to suffer for us. God gave his Son Jesus Christ to die for us. God gave his Son Jesus Christ to live for us. Christ Jesus came that we might have life and that 


we would have it more abundantly. Abundantly, we have victory over sin, victory over Satan, victory over the flesh and eventually a victorious life.
The purpose for Jesus suffering serves as an example to us that we can conquer sin even though we have to endure suffering sometimes. We are made strong and durable when tried through the fires of trials and tribulations. There is no way we will be consumed by the fires of our trials and sufferings. These fires burn off the imperfections of our lives. The suffering, Jesus endured gives me hope that my trials didn’t come to destroy me. With God’s strength and being spirit lead I can make it in this life. Jesus suffered for my freedom; Jesus endured suffering hat  wouldn’t have to, in certain respects. The cross, Jesus suffered on so I wouldn’t have too. The penalty for sin, the wrath of God, the separation, all of these things, Jesus suffered for me. Thank God for what he has done for us through Jesus Christ. The Purpose of his death secures my life eternal in him. Jesus died that I might live! The death of Jesus Christ was payment to God the father for the wages of my sins and your sins. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Once and for all the sin debt is paid if we only believe. I’m dead to sin, by believing Christ died for me. I’m dead to the power of Satan by believing Christ died for me. I’m dead to the power of the flesh, by believing Jesus died for me, Jesus Christ being buried on that day, signified to me all that was in my past is buried. I’m a new creation, old things pass away, all things become new. I now as a believer can walk in the newness of life. Buried is my old attitude, buried is my old way of thinking, buried is my old out look on life, buried is the old man. One major purpose of his burial, was to show me that new life springs forth from that which was once dead. His death, burial and resurrection is the “Good news.” Buried is the old life, ways and destiny. Alive forever is the new man in Christ Jesus. Alive to a new walk, a new talk, a new home. Paul writes in Romans 6 chapter, “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism.


His death that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father; even so we also should walk in the newness of life.”
To God be the glory, who has purposed in his Son Jesus, to give us life in this world and the world to come. Amen.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed F13 unto us the word of reconciliation. 

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as 
though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 

21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
