Sermon Series: The Crises of the Christ
God’s necessary work; humanity’s only hope
Do we wonder at what it cost? Do we think often enough of the sacrifice that was made? Do we approach the works of Christ—among them the cross and the empty tomb—too casually, aware of the story but desensitized to the divine implications? The account of the life of Christ is well known to many of us. But does it stir us? Change us?
G. Campbell Morgan, a 20th century English Preacher wrote in his book, The Crises of the Christ (the inspiration for this series), “Indeed, the beauty of the life [of Christ] itself is only fully appreciated when it is seen as related in its every part to this mighty movement of God towards the redemption of man.” In other words, we will only appreciate what Jesus accomplished on our behalf when we closely and carefully examine each crisis that he endured and see the benefit we have gained as a result. This series of messages will leave us in awe of our Saviour and God.
