THE CROSS OF CALVARY - GOD'S REDEMPTION PLAN
July 23, 2012
I am ashamed and sadden to write that many churches have turned away from mentioning and displaying the Cross of Calvary. "There is a way that seems right to man, but in the end it leads to death" - Proverbs 14:12. For it was upon the Cross that Jesus Christ gave us the gift of life. His death provided humanity sins redemption plan. The Cross was God's remedy and answer as Jesus Christ was the blood sacrifice for our sins. Yet in 21 Century society, many preachers, teachers, fail to point to the Cross, because they do not wish to offend. The Cross of Calvary should be shouted on the roof tops, preached to all who will listen. I thank God for the Cross! For I was lost and separated from God, and God provided a way through the Cross of Calvary for me and you, to be found.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6:23. The Cross provided humanity with eternal life. After death on the Cross, on the third day, Jesus Christ arose from the grave. Because He lives, we Christian's can live eternally too. Jesus Christ bridged the gap between God and Humanity on the Cross of Calvay (1 Timothy 2:5). "For Christ also has suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God..." - 1st Peter 3:18. "For God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us," (on the Cross) - Romans 5:8. All because of God's love (John 3:16-17).
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast." - Ephesians 2:8-9. The Cross of Calvary is a blessing, a gift of love, by which salvation in Jesus Christ our Lord was Holy provided. "He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. these things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe int he name of the Son of God." - 1st John 5:12-13.
"For 'whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved."- Romans 10:13. Praise God for the Cross of Calvary, and Jesus Christ's shed blood. For Jesus came that we may have life, and that we may have it more abundantly." - John 10:10. Because of God's redemption plan and the Cross of Calvary we can have peace with God. - Romans 5:1. As a Christian, I can attest, the peace of God is beyond measure. All because of the Cross.
