Countercultural

“The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One."” – Luke 23:35

The world's measure of greatness is that one ought to be able to retain power and success under all conditions. Yet, in order for Christ to truly be Christ -- our Messiah, Lord and Savior -- God willed it that He must give His life. Not only to die for our sins, but also to suffer the equivalent of eternal wrath for all of those who would be called children of God.

It is humbling and goes against everything that the world stands for or wants to believe. Thank you Jesus for your perfect obedience and for what you've done for us on the cross.
