Jesus moved into our neighborhood because we needed Him!

Hymn: In Christ Alone

‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid

The Wrath of God refers to God’s intense anger and judgment against sin and evil.

Justice does what is right to the lawbreaker.
Love figures out how to make it right with the lawbreaker.

Isaiah 53:10 MSG: Still, it’s what GOD had in mind all along, to crush him with pain. The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin so that he’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life. And GOD’s plan will deeply prosper through him.

What this Means for Us

In Christ, we now have access to the divine nature!

2 Peter 1:3-4 NIV: His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
