K.I.S.S. = Keep It Simple Saint!
The message of the Cross of Christ may seem foolish to some, but it’s often because of its simplicity. The fact is – through the Cross, we have been given the opportunity to be reconciled with God. His own willingness to take our well-deserved punishment accomplished this feat. There is no way we could pay for all of our mistakes, infringements, and selfish motivations, and God knew it (whether we did or not). God came in flesh to offer Himself up as the sacrifice. We could never be good enough or pay enough. Jesus came, God in flesh, to be born, live, and die for our sins. However, that wasn’t enough (and God knew this too) – Christ’s resurrection set us free from the chains of sin and the bondage of death. It is our choice whether we will walk in that freedom or not. It is like being given a checking account with a billion dollars in it. We can use what has been provided for us or just let it sit there and continue as we are. Make no mistake – the choice is ours.
It is for the sake of freedom that Christ set us free! (See Galatians 5:1)
