Jesus is the in-breaking of God’s regenerative intimacy with us. And on Calvary in his Hour he will pour himself out. The blood and water gushing from his hands and feet and his wounded heart will drench and anoint the earth, from this sacred clay a new creation will blossom. And all of creation gone hopelessly astray will be released from the burden of sin and all darkness and shame and Satan’s constant deceptions. Things must made right again. Light will indeed conquer darkness once and for all, because God will allow Godself to be crushed by death or darkness. But they will be duped and reversed, for they are no match for the Light that he is.
