At the cross…

At the cross…



…We see God’s sovereignty—reigning with absolute control over humanity’s greatest sin.


…We see God’s purpose—making known the mystery of His will prepared before time.


…We see God’s plan—to unite all things, on heaven and on earth, in Him.


…We see God’s judgment—requiring recompense for guilt.


…We see God’s holiness—demanding the perfect sacrifice.


…We see God’s power—crushing the Son of God according to the purpose of His will.


…We see God’s wrath—punishing the wretchedness of sin.


…We see God’s sorrow—wailing as only a forsaken son can.


…We see God’s mystery—the Son, as God, separated from the Father, committing His Spirit to God.


…We see God’s compassion—pleading to the Father to forgive the ignorant.


…We see God’s gift—His one and only Son, bruised and broken on our behalf.


…We see God’s mercy—making unrighteous sinners righteous.


…We see God’s love—Christ dying for sinners.


…We see God’s rescue operation—delivering us from the domain of darkness to the kingdom of His Son.


…We see God’s proposal—pledging Himself to His bride forever.


…We see God’s revelation—the Word of God speaking His last so He might speak on behalf of many.


…We see God’s victory—disarming His enemies, putting them to shame, and triumphing over them.


…We see God’s glory—the name of the Father being magnified for the sake of all peoples.
