Lenten Reflections Anno Domini Nostri Iesu Christi 2012
The late John Stott points out three truths encapsulated in the Cross:
– Our sin must be extremely horrible. The weight of our sin is revealed in the horror of the Cross.
– God’s love must be wonderful beyond comparison. He could have rightly abandoned us to our fate yet he redeems us.
– Christ’s salvation must be a free gift. It was purchased by His blood. This leaves nothing for us to “do.”
Three simple truths that form the foundation of a life in Christ. Three simple truths that highlight our true condition before God. Three simple truths that cause us to reflect on the complexity that we build into our faith in order to avoid confronting the reality of our fallen condition.
Grace and peace from the One who is over all and through all and in all.
