True Story


You can’t put Jesus back in the grave. You can’t roll the stone over the entrance. You can’t re-bind Him in the graveclothes.

You can’t hang Him back on the cross. You can’t re-nail the nails into His hands and feet. You can’t replace the crown of thorns on His head.

You can’t undo the crucifixion.

You can’t erase the stripes on His back. You can’t silence those who mocked Him. You can’t put Barabbas in prison and let Jesus go free.

You can’t change His commitment to die. You can’t undo His dedication. You can’t erase His will to obey or alter how He felt about those He died to save.

You can’t make Him not love the world. You can’t return the sins He carried back onto the people who committed them. You can’t un-save the lives His death redeemed.

You can’t un-walk the steps He took to get there. You can’t un-speak the words He spoke to those who heard them. You can’t make God not His Father and the Holy Spirit not fallen upon Him. You can’t make Him not touch lives and change hearts.

You can’t, in fact, alter anything about His story at all.

He was born to a virgin. He was raised in Galilee, a carpenter’s son. He amazed the leaders of the temple when He was only twelve. He grew in wisdom and knowledge and understanding beyond what people could believe.

He defended the temple. He raised the dead. He restored sight to the blind, made the lame walk again. He delivered those oppressed by the devil and brought the kingdom of God to earth.

He was the Only Begotten, the first-begotten, the Son of man, God come to dwell among men, and He is the Shepherd, the Door, the only Way to the Father. You can’t change any of that.

You can’t make Him not the Lamb of God come to take the sins of the world. You can’t make Him not be the Victor over death, hell, and the grave. You can’t make Him not the King of kings and Lord of lords. You can’t make him not the Master of all, the Head of the church, the soon-coming King.

You can’t undo anything He accomplished.

He came. He lived. He died. He rose again, and with His Resurrection, He defeated the enemy. All of that happened. All of that is factual. And what He is, He will always be. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

He conquered it. He rules it. He is the Lord of it.

No one anywhere, no power in heaven or on earth can undo Him, erase Him, or conceal Him. He was. He is, and He is to come.

True Story.
