When we determine to know and preach Christand Him crucified, of the awful and terriblesacrifice the Son of GOD made to redeem usfrom the power of sin and death; we are goingto offend many. If we speak of a just GOD whodoes not look upon evil or regard iniquity,we may be despised and rejected for our standfor the cause of the cross. There are many whorefuse to see that it was their guilt and shameand sin that nailed our Saviour to the tree ofCalvary, but it was love, marvelous and wonderfullove; that held HIM there !! You must look pastthe offense of the cross to see the glory, power,and wisdom of GOD revealed in the resurrection!!
