Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

 

From Grace for the Moment: Morning and Evening Edition by Max Lucado

The Reason for the Cross

We have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. – HEBREWS 10:10 NKJV

Man by himself cannot deal with his own guilt. He must have help from the outside. In order to forgive himself, he must have forgiveness from the one he has offended. Yet man is unworthy to ask God for forgiveness.

That, then, is the whole reason for the cross.

The cross did what sacrificed lambs could not do. It erased our sins, not for a year, but for eternity. The cross did what man could not do. It granted us the right to talk with, love, and even live with God.

You can’t do that by yourself. I don’t care how many worship services you attend or good deeds you do, your goodness is insufficient. You can’t be good enough to deserve forgiveness. No one bats a thousand. No one bowls three hundred. No one. Not you, not me, not anyone.

That’s why we need a savior.

NO WONDER THEY CALL HIM THE SAVIOR

The cross erased our sins for eternity. Christ did what we could not do. Write sentences of praise for his sacrificial love.
