*******************************************************************

By a Carpenter, mankind was created and made,

and by a Carpenter, meet it was that man should be repaired.

Erasmus

* * * * * * * * * *

We are told that Christ was killed for us,

that his death has washed out our sins,

and that by dying he disabled death itself.

Any theories we build up as to how Christ’s death did all this

are, in my view, quite secondary.

C.S. Lewis

* * * * * * * * * *

Christ is no Moses, no exactor, no giver of laws,

but a giver of grace, a Savior;

he is infinite mercy and goodness,

freely and bountifully giving to us.

Martin Luther

* * * * * * * * * *

In Jesus we see perfectly displayed the mind of God….

This is God from beginning to end, saying “I love you like that;

you can batter me, you can bruise me, you can forsake me,

you can crown me with thorns, you can treat me with injustice, you can scourge me —

I love you, nothing will stop my loving you.”

William Barclay

* * * * * * * * * *

I’m going to heaven and I believe I’m going by the blood of Christ.

That’s not popular preaching, but I’ll tell you it’s all the way through the Bible

and I may be the last fellow on earth who preaches it,

but I’m going to preach it because it’s the only way we’re going to get there.

 Billy Graham
