The heart of Christianity is Jesus Christ. He is God who became flesh, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross. Jesus was very mission guided. His mission was to come and die. Jesus came to be the mediator between a righteous and holy God and a sinful people. His mediation, however, was not a mediation handled with words, but rather it was a mediation in which Jesus bore the sins of the people and took upon Himself the wrath of God on behalf of the people. This is the story of undeserved and unfathomable grace given to people who did not deserve it. This is the gospel. Leading up to Good Friday, we will reflect on this amazing truth through some statements from Christians throughout the centuries. May you be lead worship and adore Jesus and to seek a deeper relationship with Him as we journey to the cross.
