It’s the word of the cross that gives us freedom, victory, forgiveness, and a changed heart. It’s in Christ and Christ alone that we can be born again to hope. It’s in being crucified with Christ that we are raised to new life. And it’s in being united with Him in His suffering that we find resurrection power.
I may not know what your struggles are, but we all have them, and we are all sinners. But in Christ, all who believe are washed clean, made righteous, and called sons and daughters of the King of kings. The Father is the gentlest and most compassionate of parents, and He is a Shepherd who loves us too much to let us be destroyed by our sins. He calls us to repentance, faith, and surrender because that is the only place where we can be made whole, to the praise of His glorious grace.
