The Passion of the Christ
Jordan Coros
John 19:28, 30; Matthew 27:45-46

Galatians 2:20

As a Christian, I live the passion of the Christ with him.

1. I live in the desperation of his Spiritual anguish (Matthew 27:46)

Matthew 27:45
2 Corinthians 5:21
Matthew 27:46

] I said, I will not be governed by God, and yet there in the Cross expressing that attitude, love is seen still retaining the throne, still holding the reins of government, still declaring to me that without Him I can do nothing. Apart from his authority, I am hopelessly and forever ruined. Even in the blood-baptism of that awful passion, in which my sin had declared its refusal of God, God enthrones himself, and asserts the will of essential love as superior to the will of my rebellion. –G. Campbell Morgan (paraphrased)

Romans 6:2

2. I live in the humility of his physical agony (John 19:28)

3. I live in the victory of final atonement (John 19:30)
