Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Finality of The Cross P35 (10-26-21)
All This Is From God; Come Alive in Christ Jesus; Stop Doubting and Believe; Take God at His Word; Set Aside the Teachings and Traditions of Men
Have you understood the totality of the cross and the reality of the resurrection? If you do, you cannot help but marvel and be overwhelmed with God’s great love for you, and respond with astounding gratitude and worship. You would be so in love with the Lord, who did all this for you! That is our only response to all this is from God.
2 Corinthians 5:17-19 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them.

God’s Marvelous Plan of Giving His Life to You
The world is often resistant to hearing truth. Why is that? Do they not think that you really care about them personally, so they do not care what you have to say? Is it the way the truth is presented? Do they think you are self-righteous in what you are saying? Do they feel like they are talked down to? Is their mind already made up as to what they think truth is, so they are not open to hearing? Those that do hear the gospel, do not recognize it as the message of good news. Yet, even with all those barriers, those that do hear, often hear half a gospel. At least there is some information to prepare the ground for later truth to be revealed. Sadly, many a person thinks the gospel is getting your sins forgiven. They stop at the cross but fail to go on to the empty tomb, where resurrected life is.

You Have Been Reconciled Unto an Exchanged Life as a New Creation in Christ Jesus
Have you realized you have been reconciled to God already through Jesus’ shed blood on a cross? That means the debt of sin has been in full, as Jesus last words dying on a cross were, “It is finished” (John 19:30). According to Hebrews 9:22, without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. That means Jesus is not going to shed His blood again. So this is like being tried in a courtroom of law, proven guilty, but then a man steps up and pays your fine to set you free. The penalty for the crime that rightfully should have been placed on you was pardoned, paid for by another person so you are free. Or, as an example, you were in debt and filed for bankruptcy, and the accountant in charge of the bankruptcy had to balance the books so the debt was taken off your accounts payable and written onto his accounts receivable. The debt had been cleared.
