The Victory Of The Cross Emblazoned In The cool4Christ™ Christian Apparel Emblem

cool4Christ™ Christian Apparel Emblem - The Upturned Right Hand

In our cool4Christ™ emblem, there is an interesting feature which is the upturned right hand. A couple of posts ago, I shared about the upturned right hand denoting God’s right hand - the hand of power and authority for the Christian. If you haven’t read it yet, do check it out. The upturned right hand at the Cross also denotes the victory that Jesus Christ, through His finished work on the Cross, has accomplished for the Christian. Living this victorious and blessed life is also an integral part of what cool4Christ™ Christian apparel stands for.

What Jesus accomplished on the cross for us was more than our salvation. It was a victory so multi-dimensional yet so complete that we in our natural minds would never comprehend its entirety. It takes revelation to constantly discover more and more of its perfection. Let’s look at this verse.

21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. - 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NKJV)

The fact that Jesus became Sin in our place is already so mind blowing, let alone bearing the curse and dying in our place. Just picture an almighty God, pure, righteous and spotless, the creator of heaven and earth becoming Sin itself for us. How that must feel? And for us to be made the righteousness of God! Wow, not just the righteousness of man but of God! Who can be more righteous than God himself? These 2 truths are so awesome that it’s just unfathomable. Would we ever know the full extent of God’s love for us that He did all that just for us? Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary on the Bible says:

Christ knew no sin. He was made Sin; not a sinner, but Sin, a Sin-offering, a Sacrifice for sin. The end and design of all this was, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him, might be justified freely by the grace of God through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.

The victory this divine exchange has gained us includes, among other things:

  • our right standing with God, our eternal righteousness based not on our own merits but on Christ our solid and unshakable rock;
  • our restoration in His image, placing us much higher than when man was created and far above all principalities and powers;
  • making us sons and daughters of the most high God and heirs in His kingdom;
  • the removal of power from sin and death that the devil previously had over us;
  • our well being in every area of our lives now that every curse and judgment of the law was fully exhausted in Christ.

None of these of course, would have been complete without Christ’s resurrection. Jesus having risen from the dead demonstrates His overcoming power and His victory. His death was an exorbitant overpayment for the sins of the whole world. His resurrection was an iron-clad guarantee that we are His beneficiaries. Good news? Extremely. Believe and receive. And with cool4Christ™ Christian apparel, wear and declare!
