Our Sin on His Cross — Easter Sermon

By

Our Sin on His Cross
by Eddie Lawrence

INTRODUCTION — The three crosses present the day Jesus died carry a message for each of us. Please allow me to use what Pastor Rod Parsley wrote about concerning these three crosses as a simple sermon outline that carries some very major truth from the Scripture.

Here is an excerpt from Pastor Parsley’s devotional thought and the link where you can find it in its entirety.

"There were three crosses. The cross in the middle bore the One who died for sin; another bore the one who died to sin; and the third bore the one who died in sin. Although both criminals originally railed Jesus, one asked for forgiveness and Jesus promised that man a home in Paradise. The other ridiculed His choice and now is spending eternity in hell."

With the above thought in mind, let’s look at these three powerful messages about the relationship each of us have with sin. I want to ask you three questions:

1. DO YOU KNOW THE ONE WHO "DIED FOR SIN"?

There is only ONE who has ever lived, who lived a perfect life who qualifies to die for the sin of another — His name is Jesus. Do you know him?

Consider:

A. He died willingly – He could not be made to die.
B. He died sacrificially – He chose to die for the benefit of others.
C. He died lovingly – In his death, he expressed forgivness and demonstrated God’s love to us.
D. He died triumphantly – The Bible teaches that through his death, we can now receive life. His resurrection is the proof of his triumph over the penalty of sin which is death.

2. ARE YOU ONE WHO HAS "DIED TO SIN"?

This happens when Christ is confessed as Lord of your life through the repentance from your sin and faith toward Jesus Christ.

Consider:

A. Through faith in Christ – His righteousness becomes your righteousness>
B. You receive the guaranteed of the Holy Spirit as proof of your own future resurrection to life.
C. You are granted access to God as a child of God.
D. You are liberated from the consequences and condemnation of sin.

3. IF YOU DIED TODAY, WOULD YOU BE ONE WHO "DIED IN SIN"?

You will die some day, what if it were this day? Which cross would you be hangin on?

Consider:

A. Each of us have an appointment with death.
B. There is only one way to experience victory over death.
C. Waiting till a later time is playing Russian Roulette with your soul?
D. Whatever keeps you from trusting Christ now is one of the very things he died to set you free from.
E. Will you confess Christ now? Will you value what happened for you on the cross where there was One who died for sin.

We LOVE you so.. how about liking us on Facebook?..
