The one common theme that all religions have in common, the heavy weight of the freight train of fury arrayed against injustice, the one prevailing theme in the universe, the fear that haunts the sleep of evildoers.
Karma- Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap, what goes around comes around, an eye for an eye, I will repay says the Lord;
Karma, the one prevailing truth: Sin requires judgment.
The Karma of Judgment is the one constant prevailing theme in all of religion and also our predicament along with every man and woman born.
When he did this, a whole Jewish nation represented by a few in history stood up and said: “we will take the karma, us and our children”.
One man, alone on the tracks, on the darkest day in history, stood down that freight train of fury.
In this one act of incredible karma, God, in the man Jesus, on a wooden cross all alone, chose to become the lightning rod for karma… the full fury of the wrath due to unrighteousness. He stood up against all injustice for all time, absolving for all time, all of humanity, of any guilt by association.
As He stood absorbing the full impact of judgment and fury, He looked out at His accusers and breathed forgiveness….and in so doing authorized us as righteous sons and daughters to do the same. Not only was sin dealt a destructive death blow but you and I became the Authorized Version for obliterating through mercy and grace on this earth any leftover karma
How sweet is that…no more karma against us or through us?
You and I as believers are no longer instruments of karma! Instead, you and I have become His Authorized Representatives to partner with Him in acts of love, mercy, and grace in an orphaned and broken world.
Love won on the cross. Now through the cross, you and I have become love. That is who we are! Love now wins through you and me. Forgiveness reigns and karma stands on its head.
