Slide1:  THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CROSS Romans 5:6-11 :  Romans 5:6-11 For while we were still helpless, at the appointed moment, Christ died for the ungodly. For rarely will someone die for a just person—though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die. But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us! Slide3:  Much more then, since we have now been declared righteous by His blood, we will be saved through Him from wrath. For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, then how much more, having been reconciled, will we be saved by His life! And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Holman Christian Standard Bible Slide4:  5 THINGS THE CROSS SIGNIFIES:  5 THINGS THE CROSS SIGNIFIES Slide6:  1. What God Thinks of My Sin God Hates Sin:  God Hates Sin Romans 8:3 'God… condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh… as a sin offering' God Hates Sin:  God Hates Sin Romans 8:3 'God… condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh… as a sin offering' Literally, to judge down. Jesus 'died under the judgment due to our sin'—Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words Slide9:  2. What God Thinks of Me God Loves Me:  God Loves Me 1st John 4:9-10 'God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent His One and Only Son into the world so that we might live through Him. Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.' The word propitiation has to do with the removal of divine wrath. Jesus’ death is the means that turns God’s wrath from the sinner – Holman note God Loves Me:  God Loves Me 1st John 4:9-10 'God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent His One and Only Son into the world so that we might live through Him. Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.' God does not love us because Christ died for us; Christ died for us because God loved us. - John Stott Slide12:  3.

Hebrews 10:19-22 'Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that He has inaugurated for us, through the curtain (that is, His flesh); let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water.' Slide21:  5. That I Now Belong to God Ransom:  Ransom 1st Timothy 2:5-6 'For there is one God and one mediator between God and man, a man, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself—a ransom for all…' Ransom: The price of release. Used of the price paid for the freedom of a slave. Redemption:  Redemption In the Old Testament days: To buy back a property or person in order to keep it in the family A person, to redeem, had to have the right to do so – by being related as a 'kinsman redeemer.'
