We have to be careful when we come to the cross of Jesus to not just view it and two seconds later push it aside as if it was a trite event. It must command our utter attention. It must captivate us not just this morning, but every single day. For everyday we lay it aside and treat it as a humdrum event, an unexceptional/ordinary incident not worth our meditation or time, we wander from what it is that makes us so different. We wander from the life-giving source that changes us from the inside out. We wander from what propels us to be salt and light to this world.
This is part two of a two week look at the cross and the effects that cross has on the life of a believer. You can find part one here.
- He suffered that we might be free.
- He was mocked that we might be loved.
- He was exposed that we might be clothed
- He was rejected that we might be welcomed
- He was thirsty that we might be satisfied
- He endured that we might be forgiven
