Jesus, In Agony For Us
March 15, 2020
The Bible tells us to “remember the Lord’s death until He comes.” We do this every year during Holy Week, and, every time we join together for The Lord’s Supper. His death paid the price for our sins, a death we’ll commemorate throughout eternity. What He did during those last fateful days was done for us—undeserving sinners. May we be reminded of how far God went so that we might be redeemed.
An Urgent Plea For The Church To Return To Its Mission
We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. Yet, many Christians have pushed aside the cross in order to fight the world on its own terms and with its own strategies.
Instead, Pastor Lutzer says, we must stand on biblical ground. This fight is not one against our fellow Americans, it’s “against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Let us not retreat or become silent, but let us remember where our true allegiance lies.
This book reminds us that spiritual redemption, not political reformation, is at the heart of God’s agenda. Only the church, not a political party, can bear God’s message to a hurting world. And the world is watching us. Are we showing them Christ?
