The Cross: Resurrection Sunday: The Empty Cross and Grave

By Brad Quiring on April 1, 2018

1 Corinthians 15:12-28. Jesus died on the cross. He was buried. Had he stayed in the grave, he would be no better or different than any other human. But Jesus rose again from the dead. Both the cross and the grave are empty because Jesus is alive. Because Jesus is alive, we are alive, too, through faith in the fact of...

The Cross: My Cost from Christ’s Cross

By Brad Quiring on March 25, 2018

The cross was very costly for Jesus. It cost Him His life. It was costly for God the Father, as it cost Him His son. But all this was done out of love for us. What will our response be? Do we live for ourselves and today, or do we live for Someone who is so much higher and greater?...

The Cross: The Glory of the Shameful Cross

By Brad Quiring on March 11, 2018

The message of the cross, of Jesus’ substitutionary death, is the primary message. God turned the shame and curse of the cross into His glory and our salvation. This is what we proudly proclaim: The Gospel of Jesus is simple: Jesus died on the cross for our sins. That is all we have to announce. Hebrews 12:1-3; 1 Corinthians 1:17-18

Then and Now: Good Friday: Then: Guilty. Now: Innocent

By Brad Quiring on April 14, 2017

Romans 3:19-31. We were guilty because of sin. Our sin nature and our decision to follow our sin nature left us guilty before God without any way to save ourselves. In fact, even if we could keep the Law, it would only serve to show us how sinful we really are. Jesus' took on the punishment for our guilt in...

Then and Now: Then: Without Hope and Without God in the World; Now: With Hope and With God in Christ

By Brad Quiring on April 9, 2017

Ephesians 2:11-22. Before knowing the gospel and believing in the person and work of Jesus, we were hopelessly lost and separated from God. Because of Jesus' death and resurrection, we have moved into a personal relationship with God. We have identity and hope.

Then and Now: Then: Slave to Sin. Now: Slave to Christ

By Brad Quiring on April 2, 2017

Romans 6:5-14. Before Christ we were slaves to our sinful nature. Sin was our master, yet we willingly followed. The result was being subject to God's judgment. But Christ came and willingly submitted to God's will that he suffer and die for our sins. Now we have a new master: Jesus Christ himself. We no longer have to be slaves...

Missing Peace: Rejected Peace

By Brad Quiring on March 20, 2016

Centuries before his arrival, Jesus was prophesied to be the Prince of Peace. The Jewish people were under the heavy boot of the Roman conquerors. Jesus rode up to the capital city of Jerusalem as the Prince of Peace. Who would not want this peace? His own people did not receive him and he was rejected. We are under the...
