Through the cross…
Jesus gives Himself as a ransom.
Jesus forgives our trespasses.
Jesus erases our debt.
Jesus liberates us from sin.
Jesus frees us from our futile ways.
Jesus reconciles us to God.
Jesus reconciles enmity between people.
Jesus reconciles all things on heaven and earth to Himself.
Jesus pays our penalty and removes our guilt.
Jesus appeases God’s wrath and justice.
Jesus upholds God’s righteousness.
Jesus secures our redemption for eternity.
Jesus models the ultimate denial of self.
Jesus displays God’s power for our salvation.
For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
