Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Paul gloried in the cross because Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is the source of his and every believer’s righteousness and acceptance before God. The cross brought an end to the hopeless frustration of pursuing God through works. In the cross, we discover that God “made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2Cor. 5:21). Christians honor and even boast in the cross because Christ’s sacrifice there provided redemption and eternal life, making it the supreme symbol of the gospel. To truly know the meaning of the cross, you must first know the One who died there. May God help us to see, receive, and praise the Savior who was crucified for us.
