The Paradox of Salvation
March 18, 2016 • Isaiah 53:1-9
Life is full of natural consequences: cut your finger? Experience pain and bleeding. Get caught lying or cheating? Experience broken trust. Using worldly logic, salvation in Jesus Christ does not make sense. It defies natural consequences. It challenges our expectations. As we enter Holy Week and approach Easter, we need to discover again the paradox of salvation found in Jesus' journey to the cross and how the Servant of the Lord disrupts sin's natural consequences to bring us new life.
