The scandal of Christianity

The penalty of sin is death. It requires atonement, the shedding of blood. Only God can make atonement. And in Jesus Christ, He did.

In order to make atonement, someone must take the lowest place. We can’t. The devil wouldn’t. Only God can take the lowest place. And in Jesus Christ, He did.

In Jesus Christ, God became a man and died. He took the lowest place. He became nothing, the servant of all. He bore the curse and shame of sin. He paid the penalty of death for sin. He made atonement.

This is the scandal of Christianity.
