4B SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 Religion SIDNEY HERALD You&apos;re not supposed to hit a substitute that hard When the quarterback sprained his ankle, his sub- stitute came into the game On the next play, there was no backfield blocking. Both outside linebackers came in fast and hit the quarterback hard. His helmet came off. The ball rolled out of his hands. He lay there dazed. Finally being shifted to a stretcher, he said, "You're not supposed to hit a substi- tute that hard" Not right. Being a substi- tute puts a player into the game fully for the starter. Christ is our substitute. He is in fully for us. In Geth- semane, he had no backfield blocking. He got hit hard by two charging linebackers. There, Jesus "began to be .;,.x i - Religious words Tom Halvorson sore amazed" (Mark 14:33) The Greek word is ekthambeo. It means to throw into terror, to alarm thor- oughly. He saw some- thing appear suddenly. It already was approaching him when first he saw it It had the drop on him It forced itself upon him. It was an assaulting, menacing horror. Jesus saw a killing nightmare. His saying, "My soul is ex- ceedingly sorrowful, even to death" (Mark 14:34), was not a look forward to the cross. The horror was killing him already in the garden. The nightmare would have killed him on the spot had not an angel strengthened him. (Luke 22:43) He saw the twin causes of death: sin and wrath. Those were the two linebackers that hit him. Jesus' cries in Geth- semane are not cowardly snivels, as if whining that linebackers should not hit a substitute so hard. They are his heroic substitution for us in facing the wrath of God on our sin. Fac- ing wrath is lethal. It was killing Jesus. Before the foundation of the world, He had agreed bravely to this suffering. 'He saw sin in his conscience as a killing nightmare. His holiness and his sympathy for sinners made him feel sin the way we should but can't.' Tom Halvorson Columnist Because Jesus was acting as our mediator to bring us to God, he had no backfield blocking against being hit by sin in his conscience. The qualification of a mediator is sympathy. To bring alien- ated parties together, the mediator must understand each party. Without sinning, Jesus suddenly felt what it is to be a sinner. He saw sin in his conscience as a kill- ing nightmare. His holiness and his sympathy for sin- ners made him feel sin the way we should but can't. Francis Pieper says, "The transfer of our sin to Him was a purely juridical divine act [but this] pen- efi:ated to the very heart and conscience of the suffering Christ .... He felt the sin and guilt of all men in His soul as His own sin and guilt." Jesus took sin and wrath to give us forgiveness and peace. "Bless the LORD ... who forgives all your iniq- uity" (Psalm 103:2) In justification, God gives us Christ's righteousness and declares us innocent. Christ's righteousness brings peace and joy. "Since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God." (Romans 5:1) Matthew Harrison explains Romans 14:17, "Where Christ's righteousness is laid hold of [by faith], there is peace of conscience and where there is peace of conscience, there is a profound joy." 406-433-1983 Sidney i'm Iovin' it % "Your Partner in Protection" hland Farm utual /INSURANCE COMPANY Phone: (406) 488-4898 West Side Professional Center, Suite 1, 1405 4th St. S.W., Sidney I  A church with a heart where the Word of --,,i, s God comes alive f si "'- to the hearer. 406-433-7773 Comer of 6th Ave. & 11th St. S.E.,Sidney Worship services luli-ana's Gifts The Giftiest 'Shoppe' In Town 114 N.
