Calculated risk, a hazard or chance of failure whose degree of probability has been reckoned or estimated before some undertaking is entered upon. Based on this definition, there is no better person to talk about who took this risk than Christ Jesus.

For God to become man with a mission, it must have taken some great deal of planning. When God became man, would he be recognized, would he be accepted? Would he be heard or listened to when he spoke or gave his testimony? Would his death be annulled if people did not receive him?

What if the resurrection part did not succeed? How would that have been dealt with, that someone who claimed to be God is dead? What if he couldn’t defeat the foe of death? With all our sins laid on him, would he have been able to rise up in victory as guiltless?

Speaking humanly, all these were calculated risks but God had everything under control. Everything worked out as planned which proves to me that God knew all the moves of Satan. God stooped in the place of man and redeemed him that man will become God’s child.

Was it worth it? It was all worth it, so that God wouldn’t lose His children to the Devil who knows that his end has been determined. If you know the pain Christ went through for our sins, you would understand that saving a handful of souls is worth it.

We cannot save the entire world as a church, not that Christ can’t but that man still has his freewill. Christ cannot coerce us into receiving him; we have to come out of our will and surrender to him so Christ can save us, and give us eternal life. If you will take that step, perhaps your move will make his crucifixion a little easier (rf. Hebrews 6:6). God bless you.
