I was listening today to a song and it is a song that we all know. If you look at crucifixion of Christ there are many things we ought to be thankful for. You find the crucifixion in all the Gospels. I was thinking today what if Calvary didn't happen. There are people that don't believe happen and there are many people that reject Calvary happening but in our life where would we be if it wasn't for Calvary.
I. We be in Sin.
Thank God we are freed from sin.
If we hadn't knelt at the cross who knows where we be.
We be Wicked.
We be Worldly
We be Wearied
Sin is weary. It breaks us down and leads to death.
II. We would have to pay the sentence.
God's sentence is Hell. We would have to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire had it not been for Calvary. We all say thank God we don't have too but what about family friends foes going. Those that we love will go to that awful place. We must try everything from prayer, to fasting to telling our love ones.
III. We would not meet the Savior.The one who died on the cross for us.
He loves us.
He leads us.
Those that die will be meet him as judge if they don't get saved. We will meet him as friend, and as the rock of our soul.
Had it not been for Calvary what a mess we would be in. Thank God we have been to the fountain at Calvary. It should motivate us to try our best to tell as many as we can the Gospel.
