The Crux

All of human history decisively turns at the cross of Jesus Christ. As P.T. Forsyth said, “You do not understand Christ till you understand the cross.” Not only can you not know Christ apart from the cross, you cannot know God’s purposes in this world. In fact, you cannot even rightly know yourself. The cross is the clearest demonstration of our deepest need and of God’s abundant provision.

In the first part of The Crux series, we see how the cross of Jesus Christ is at the center of the Bible message and at the core of our faith.

When we look at the cross of Jesus, we see the clearest demonstrations of our sin, God’s wrath and justice, and God’s love.

On the cross Jesus stood as our substitute, both by receiving the punishment that we had earned and by earning the righteousness that we could not.

On Good Friday, we reflect on the manner in which Jesus willingly suffered because he entrusted himself to the will of his Father. Since Jesus accepted suffering for us, we are not alone in ours.

Jesus won his decisive victory through his death on the cross. God’s raising him from the dead makes that victory clear.
