Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. (Proverbs 20:16)
If we barrow or apply for loan in the bank one requirement is a co-maker, what the porpose of this? once you fail to pay your loan, your co-maker is the one who pay for it, and if you are a co-maker of course you wont pay it because you are not the one who take a loan, other people doesn’t want to be a co-maker because of this, maybe they don’t want the bank to chase them if you fail to pay the loan or they didn’t trust you, this is the heart of men, greedy. but our Lord Jesus is not like that he didn’t say no when he send by God to be a surety for our salvation and save us from death.
Jesus Christ was and is the Surety our salvation Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant. (Heb 7:22), those the Father gave Him to save he didn’t say no but he accept what the Fathers will, he said,
“For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.” “And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day”
God granted him authority…
“For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 6:38-39; 17:2-3).
Though we were guilty of every sin, He took the full cost and risk of our sin and souls and paid the complete price for our pardon. we didn’t pay anything to God for our salvation, our Lord pay it. because he does not want that There is not the slightest chance that a single one will be lost and gave what we need.
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died more than that, who was raised to life is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?” (Rom 8:32-35). So, no one, but ourselves, We are eluding from the call of God.
Like the other barrower who run from their obligation and let it to thier co-maker or surety, God didn’t want us to do that, He sent Jesus to pay for us, so that we have no reason to runaway from God.
Stop running away, He just waiting for you to return.
