When I surveyed the things that have transpired in my life: tragedies, my own poor judgement and many trying times... I came to a conclusion that, I've really been through Hell. So naively and ignorantly put! Painful and hard, yes. But, Jesus literally went through Hell in His death on a cross that belonged to all men for the price of sin. He paid the debt no one but God could pay. He conquered death and the grave in His resurrection to bring life to all sinners who would make Him their Lord. Only He could both lay his life down and then raise it up again. What love a creator has for His creation to be willing to humbly be born in a lowly manger and suffer unjustly for a once perfect creation marred by sin. No goodness could satisfy the debt and remove sin. Only Christ's perfect sacrifice is set apart from all others, not just an atonement but a complete cleansing and sin removal. Only through Jesus is there hope in this life. Hope for eternal life and hope during trying times. Trying times come to all the living.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (Romans 5:1-10 KJV)
