The Cross, and Ressurection... His motivation
The cross is gods answer to our sin debt….
What was his motive for the cross?
1. Love [John 3:16]
Required by his nature to declare us no longer guilty, and cleanse us…. Taking the debt of out sin on himself, and take care of it…..
Romans 3:23, 24
It’s a gift that he gives us, and we’ve been justified by a gift…. Through the work of Jesus on the cross… that he might be the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus….
God cannot ignore sin,
God forgive the Old Testament saints on credit, on the basis of what the son of God would do in the future…
He didn’t ignore their sins, he rather took it out on Jesus for him to bare
The sacrificing of an animal, was rather a foreshadowing of what god was to do
2nd Corinthians 5:21
We became righteous in Gods eyes, through Jesus, because Jesus made us righteous….
We could not pay our debt, but Jesus did by putting down his own life…
