No one ever celebrates when someone they love dies. Yet the Bible tells us to proclaim, to give thanks for, even to rejoice in the death of Christ. Why? Because it was His death on the cross that paid the penalty for our sin and made us righteous before God. His death gives salvation and eternal life to all those who put their faith in Him. Whenever we take the Lord’s Supper, we are proclaiming His death — we are preaching the Gospel — and that is the greatest message we could ever share.
Our Unchanging God of Righteousness
In order to understand our need of freedom from sin, we must first understand our God. Many know He is a God of love, but He is also a God of righteousness, and our knowledge of these two qualities must be kept in balance. Listen as we take a look at what Scripture tells us about our righteous God, including an eye-opening glimpse at some of His righteous acts.
