It was Blaise Pascal who said: “Not only do we not know God except through Jesus Christ; we do not even know ourselves except through Jesus Christ.” At the Cross we find both revealed. God’s love, mercy and justice respond to the sinner and his sin. Look at what Christ did to reconcile us to God: “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures” (1 Cor 15:3). “And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins” (1 Jn 3:5). “When He had by Himself purged our sins, [He] sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high” (Heb 1:3). “God…sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 Jn 4:10). “For He has made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin” (2 Cor 5:21). “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree” (1 Pet 2:24). “Unto Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood” (Rev 1:5). “Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age” (Gal 1:4). No wonder He could cry, “It is finished!” Hallelujah!
