Of which salvation the prophets have 
enquired and searched diligently, who 
prophesied of the grace that should 
come unto you: Searching what, or what 
manner of time the Spirit of Christ which 
was in them did signify, when it testified 
beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and 
the glory that should follow 
(1 Peter 1:10-11).

Luke 24:46-47 says, “... Thus it is written, and 
thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise 
from the dead the third day: And that repentance and 
remission of sins should be preached in his name 
among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”  The 
crucifixion of Christ was necessary for the salvation 
of man; salvation couldn’t have been accomplished 
otherwise. Our opening scripture talks about the glory 
that follows the sufferings of Christ. Part of that glory is 
the salvation of man. 
Salvation is an all-encompassing word that 
encapsulates all that God wrought for us in Christ: life, 
health, wealth, prosperity, abundance, etc. He suffered 
for your sake. He was your substitute on the cross. He 
took your place that you might take His place. Your 
place was that of sin and death; His place was that of 
life and righteousness. 
The Bible says,  “But he was wounded for 
transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the 
chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with 
his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). He was made 
sin for us, who knew no sin that we might be made 
the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21). 
Jesus didn’t just save you from sin; He gave you His 
life and nature. 
When you come to the realization of the importance 
of the sacrifice of Christ, then you’ll appreciate His 
vicarious death and appropriate the benefits of salvation 
in your life. Today, sin and its effects and consequences 
have no dominion over you. You’re free to serve the 
Lord and live for Him. You’re now accepted in the 
presence of God, all because of Jesus.  
Man became separated from the glory-life due 
to Adam’s transgression, but as a result of the death, 
burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the glory has 
been restored. You were brought into that life of glory 
the moment you were born again.
I manifest the glory and righteousness of God, 
because I have His life and nature in my spirit. Jesus 
suffered in my place; therefore, I live in the ensuing 
glory and beauty of His vicarious sacrifice. My life is 
upward and forward, and my light shines ever more 
brightly, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. 
Isaiah 53:1-5; 2 Corinthians 8:9; 1 Peter 2:21-24
