The Glory of the Cross

From Series: Some Strange Ideas

The Apostle Paul boldly proclaimed a crucified, risen Savior, and rested in the surety of His love. Alistair Begg points out three essential elements of Christ’s sacrificial work on the cross, namely that He went willingly, obediently, and savingly. When we look to Christ in trust and acknowledge His sacrifice on behalf of our sin, we look away from ourselves and to the grace and goodness of God.


4who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,

1Who has believed what he has heard from us?1

And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
