Thank God for the Cross of Christ and All Its Benefits

2010-10-06

    That being manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself, Hebrews 9:26(NASB) Christ did through the eternal Spirit offer Himself without blemish to God, Hebrews 9:14(NASB) and through His own blood entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:12(NASB)

    That He has disarmed the rulers and authorities, and made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through His cross, and has cancelled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against me, which was hostile to me, taking it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Colossians 2:14-15(NASB)

    That He Himself is my peace, who, having broken down the barrier of the dividing wall between Jew and Gentile, has made in Himself the two into one new man, has reconciled them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. Ephesians 2:14-16(NASB)

    That He has loved me and released me from my sins by His blood, and has made His people to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father. Revelation 1:5-6(NASB)

    O the height and depth and length and breadth of that love of Christ which surpasses knowledge! Ephesians 3:18-19(NASB) O that great love with which He loved me! Ephesians 2:4(NASB)

    Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing; Revelation 5:12(NASB) for He was slain, and has purchased me for God with His blood. Revelation 5:9(NASB)
