Colossians 2:13-15 BSB 13When you were dead in your trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our trespasses, 14having canceled the debt ascribed to us in the decrees that stood against us. He took it [our debt] away, nailing it to the cross! 15And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
Jesus’ death and resurrection was the greatest show ever.
It was the greatest show of MERCY
It was the greatest show of POWER
It was the greatest show of LOVE
Romans 5:8 “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Mark 10:17-22 He kept the commands about loving others, but failed to actually love others. 1 John 3:17 James 2:16 In failing to love others, he actually failed to love God, too. 1 Peter 1:5-9 When Jesus hits the bullseye of your heart, there’s no negotiating. What’s the bullseye for you? Will you give up what matters much in order to gain what matters most?
