Station 10: Jesus is Crucified

Because Jesus died on the cross there is now someone standing beside us in our wrongdoing, whispering to God “Father forgive them.” Now there is a permanent sacrifice on the altar every time we need cleansing, ready to be offered to God. And not just any sacrifice, a perfect, blameless one that is instantly accepted in place of the wrath we so deeply deserve. 

God Forgives David and You, Too

He did something wrong, multiple things wrong, yet once he repents, God forgives him. And more than that God forgets it. He chooses him to be anointed, to be king, to be a mighty warrior, a writer of Psalms, even though he knew David would commit such a horrible series of acts. And he calls us to do the same: forgive and accept forgiveness.
