I John 3:16,
He laid down his life for us.
There is no understanding of the death of Christ unless we understand the person of Christ. It is only as fully God and fully man that his death COULD be laid down for us.
But did he really lay down his life for us?
Three lessons from Christ’s sacrifice:
- How great must have our sins been that they could not be atoned for any other price.
- How great must have been his love.
- How secure we must be.
