We cherish the cross of Jesus for many reasons, but one of the fundamental reasons is because of what the cross accomplishes. It saves sinners like us. It reveals the true and living God. It overcomes evil.
God’s Word paints a vivid, beautiful picture of the salvation we enjoy because of the cross of Jesus Christ.
This link contains the outline of a lecture I gave this week that summarizes chapter 7 of the book The Cross of Christ by the beloved pastor and author John Stott. May the Lord use it to ignite renewed devotion in your heart to Jesus as you prepare for Holy Week.
