Have you been made alive? Our big idea this Easter Sunday is to come alive to God by being made alive, by considering yourself alive, and by fighting for your life.
Ray Ortlund, Alive to God: Genesis 1, preached at Immanuel Church in Nashville on January 14, 2018.
Christ identified with us, and now we see that it was so we might be identified with Him in His death and resurrection, that we might die and walk in newness of life.
Romans (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament), Thomas Schreiner
Why the cross? Jesus was identifying with us, the transgressors of God's law.
Luke (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament), Darrell Bock
