Trying to fathom the details of the atonement
I can't comprehend how Jesus suffered in the terrible fashion he did on that historic night in Gethsemane. Nor can I come to terms with his awful death or begin to imagine by what power or phenomenon he was able to revive and become alive again.
Its implications for a life beyond the one we currently live are clear. But of the atonement's role in our everyday lives here and now? I spend significant time wondering about this. It may be fair to remark that every human endeavour which overcomes sin or struggle, and every genuine happiness, joy and contentment we feel here in a world that is punctuated by certain death, is directly attributable to the retrospective atonement of Jesus Christ.
As for a clear answer on how that is made possible - I don't know. And I'm fine with that. So I will keep searching.
How do you feel the atonement of Christ working for you?
