Because of the Cross, Feb 15, 2009

Because of the Cross
Gal. 6:14
Isa. 53:1-12
 – Jesus became defiled, desacrated, unholy, impure, at the cross, all for me and you

Transgression – rebellion
Bruised – crushed, shattered
Iniquities – depravity, perversity

Because of the cross…
1. I am saved from the wrath of God
  – I deserved to be crushed under God’s wrath because of my sin, but instead, God crushed Himself under His own wrath so I could be saved
  – Isa. 53:5; Eph. 5:23;2:8, Rom. 5:1-19

– who can really live this message?
 – very few can actually live this way, but we’re called to live this way

– read Galatians and see if you’re living the life God has called you to live
