ON A HILL TOO FAR AWAY - Fifteen Protestant Truths About the Death of God the Son

#12 - Jesus Christ Died On The Cross To Call Us To Follow His Example Of Humility And Selflessness

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
1 Peter 2:18-24
#12 In The Series "ON A HILL TOO FAR AWAY - Fifteen Protestant Truths About the Death of God the Son"


It should be striking to us that Peter very specifically gives reference to the whole issue of slavery when he teaches these persecuted Christians about the cross of Jesus Christ. The cross of Christ is a very good thing and a very Godly thing, while slavery is a very bad thing and a very ungodly thing. Why would Peter put two things together that obviously don't match up at all?


There is a method to Peter's madness. He's going to tell us something we all remember about the Passion of Christ and he's going to tell us something very few of us remember about the Passion of Christ. The part we all remember is found in verse 24 - "...He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed."
