Sermon Quotes: "Cries from the Cross | Part 2"

“. . . his identity contracted to the point where the whole truth about him was that he was the sin of the world. He was carrying it, heaven held him answerable for it, and he was it.

Sunday Sermon Quotes: The Empty Tomb and the Risen Christ

“How interesting that God didn’t select the Sabbath (Israel’s holy day) as the resurrection day. Instead he chose the next day to be the new holy day. He chose Sunday to be the day we worship his Son (the Lord’s day). Perhaps he chose a new day because a new era was breaking into world history; a permanent cavity was torn in the cosmos to create an ...
