Lent '11

"For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might
become the righteousness of God." 2 Corinthians 5:21.
The cross of Jesus Christ is the signature symbol-
- of the central event in the history of civilization.

Yet, today we depict the cross as common.

Jewelers pound it into all sorts of finery so we can staple crosses to our

Jesus hung as our substitute.
You can't understand the Gospel until you understand this idea of
Jesus' death was in the place of every person who has ever lived.

You are too.

Each of us deserves to die in payment for our own sin.
But Jesus stepped in and took that penalty for each of us.
