I’m pleased to host Naty Matos as my guest today! Let’s give her a warm welcome!
The Perfect Crime
Anyone who has spent some time with me knows that I love crime shows. It’s not the evil component of a crime that attracts me, it’s the psychology behind the crime and the perpetrator that peaks my interest. Although crime is not a good thing, I do believe that from all evil acts have a silver lining as it says in Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Sometimes it has taken a painful experience like this to bring the perpetrator or even the victims to a place of brokenness and closer to God. I think that’s the appeal for me, I always look at what is the pain and hurt that those involved are going through and where the possibility is of redemption.
Long time ago there was a plan to destroy humanity. A fallen angel wanted to take control over God’s most created possession, you and me. That fallen angel in the shape of a snake (well suited by the way) tempted mankind and got them thrown of out the perfect life with God in paradise. After that, chaos reigned and God made multiple attempts to restore order, but we were unable to keep ourselves right.
God sent his son to rescue us and the fallen angel went after him as well. He tried to tempt him to fall out of grace and at the end he killed him, thinking that he had committed the perfect crime. Little did the fallen angel know that it was God’s plan all along to have his son killed, not only to show his glory through the resurrection, but by now giving us all a way back to him that could not be taken away.
So why is it the perfect crime? Is not perfect for the perpetrator, but from the mastermind God who even used the darkness to redeem us all.
John 3:16 (MSG)
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.”
God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.
