HELD TO THE CROSS

"God made Christ who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God."  (2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV)


It wasn't the Romans who nailed Jesus to the cross.  It wasn't the Jewish religion that took Him up the hill of Calvary.  It wasn't spikes that held Jesus to the cross.  What held Him to that cross was His conviction that it was necessary that He become sin -- that He who is pure become sin and that the wrath of God be poured down, not upon the creation, but upon the Creator.
