Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Matthew 26:26-28
But He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His wounds we are healed. -Isaiah 53:5

Christ’s suffering was not for Himself. Our Lord suffered because of our sins. Christ was made a curse for you and for me. It was because of  sin that He want to the cross.

Our sin is the source of enmity with God. God’s Word shows us how exceedingly sinful sin is and we must see that, lest we start tolerating and condoning sin. When you sin, think, “That’s what drove Christ to the cross.”

It is Good Friday.  One blogger deemed today “GREAT Friday” and it certainly is!  Without Christ’s death, we would have to take our own blame, bear our own wrath and die for our own sins.  BUT GOD…thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! 

The cross should constantly be in our view, not just once a year.
