What the Cross Means Today (1 Peter 2:21-25)Pastor Justin Pratt, April 9, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
As we enter into Holy Week on this Palm Sunday, we enter into the shadow of the cross where Jesus would lay down His life for us almost 2,000 years ago. But the cross is still just a relevant today as it was then. It serves as a relationship to those who are saved. In the past it justifies. In the present it sanctifies. And in the future it glorifies.
Consider the cross tonight. Behold it's saving power. Search your heart and realize its importance to us beyond salvation.

1 Peter 2:21-25
21For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls. (KJV)
