(in case you need a refresher on what an easement is)
Jim had an easement to bathe in a pond
but little did poor Jim know
Jill sold the land with nary a word
so Jim had nothing to show.
Jim had an easement to drive on a road
that happened to cross o’er Jill’s land
When Jill built a house right in the way
Jim made a legal demand.
Jim had an easement to stroll by the creek
though Jim hadn’t used it in years
Unless he did more to abandon the right
Jill could only recover her tears.
Jim had an easement on Jill’s favorite hill
Jill couldn’t build for the view
The moment Jill tried, Jim could reply
“I guess this means I must sue.”
Jim had an easement to Jill’s private street
to drive his machines to the fields
But when Jim began using the street to hunt deer
He may have extinguished their deal.
Jim had an easement on his own land
that he sold to his dear Uncle Sam
So birdies could live in endangered trees
and Jim could evade the tax-man.
Jim had an easement to think his own thoughts
because he didn’t own his own brain
Someone Greater owned Jim and gave him his breath
so Jim could proclaim his Great Name.
Even before you were landlocked in you sin and legally separated from God by your rebelliousness to the laws of God, Jesus Christ came to earth and took on human flesh to become an Eternal Easement on your behalf. Christ’s death on the Cross purchased for you what you could not purchase for yourself — a way back into fellowship with the Father, an easement across the abyss of sin that once again allowed mankind to come near to his Creator. Christ took all the detriments of this “great exchange” upon himself, taking the form of a servant, so that all those who repent of their sin and trust in Him could receive his eternal benefits. And even now, He bids you, “Come.” “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
…remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” – Ephesians 2:12-13
